1- tub the frame and relocate the leafs + adjusable coilovers +caltrac style bars


2- use a drag racing 4-link kit

3- copy the 4-link from a production car (G-body or B-body)

I don't know anything about 4-link design and theory so, I think the easiest and cheapest way is #1

this is a drag race truck but I love to drive it in the street
it will have a +500 rwhp sbc



any input appreciated
Are you looking for the cheapest way, if so relocating the leaf springs IMO is the way to go. You can reuse a lot of the same parts. If you do use the 4-link set up this is great, but they are sometimes difficult to adjust properly. But with that said they are ADJUSTABLE so you can fine tune. You can buy complete weld in back half kits for these trucks from many vender's but they are $$$ , they are quick and easy to install. Good luck with the project and keep us posted.
