    so currently doing a ls doubler swap right now and going to get away from my old radius arm set up does anyone have any pics or can do a layout of a single or double triangulated 4 link that mounts the narrow lower links to the axel not the cross member if that makes sense. trying to get around oil pan issues only reason not going to regular lower links mounting in the middle of the cross member.

    I’ll tell you what everybody told me when I had a set of Rockwell’s. Sell them and buy a set of tons.

    I have all the Rockwell link mounts from an old project I gathered parts for if your interested in them. I believe they are from ballistic cab.

    I would suggest keeping the narrow end of the lowers at the frame side. You want total triangulation greater than 40 deg. You can accomplish completely with lowers, and just use parallel uppers to clear the oil pan. That is the most common setup on a front rockwell axle.

    I'll have to dig them out and look. I have had them about 12 years now.
