4 links to replace front leafs

well im going to go with an adjustable bag suspension so i was thinking instead of tossing the straight axle out id 4 link the front as well as the back and ditch the leafs


with the bags acting as springs i think this is crazy enough to work


any input would be great on this idea even if you think im an idiot

Just look at the front suspension of ANY monster truck.

They don't use air bags, but the same technology applies.

Hey, it holds up and works well in a vehicle with 1200+ horsepower, 66 inch tires, and a need to make precise turns while flexing all over the place.

You'll either have to use a triangulated setup or a panhard bar of some sort to positively locate the axle. Otherwise it will move side to side and you definitely don't want that to happen.
