BROTHERS 4 link for a '49 chevy truck.

I drive a '49 Chevy truck with a 350/350 and Camaro rear end. About a month ago I ordered some parts from "BROTHERS". I ordered the 4 link conversion for the rear end, a "C" notch kit, a set of rear view mirrors, a headliner and door lock for my truck. The 4 link kit was back-ordered but they did send me everything else that I ordered. The glass in the mirrors is badly distorted, the rear section of the headliner is about 3" short (maybe different year). My question is: Has anyone used the "BROTHERS" 4 link kit and is it any good or should I cancel my order before they send it? I haven't been too happy with the rest of the stuff that they have sent me so I'm wondering about the 4 link before I cut the whole back end out of my truck. Can anyone recommend a better rear suspension for a street driven truck?

Sorry for being so "wordy".
Thanks
Ed

I've ordered lots of stuff from Brother's and never had a problem. Always been good stuff.

Thanks for the input. I was just feeling a little bummed. I've never ordered anything from BROTHERS before and was a little concerned.

I'll quit whining and wait for the parts to arrive.
Thanks
Ed

OK. I called BROTHERS and they were very nice on the phone and said to send the parts back that I had a problem with and they would be glad to make it right.
Just wanted to touch base again after bad-mouthing BROTHERS to add a positive side to the story.
