Default Gatekeeper High Clearance Links

I want to install high clearance lower front links on my Gatekeeper. Do I also need to install high clearance upper links? I donít know if the new high clearance lowers will interfere with straight upper links. Thanks.

Thanks. Would I just get the same length (100mm) or do I need to add length to compensate for the bend.

Not sure, I just bought the kit that had both, and just put on the bottoms
Theoretically, you would just measure the length between the balls, not looking at the bend.

You just need the Element 100mm bent links.

Or for something a bit heavier duty, try these.

Though, they show them as 107mm linksÖ

Regarding the high clearance link kits like the one from Club 5 Racing, what’s the point in changing the front upper or the rear links? I understand swapping out the front lowers, but none of the other links are exposed to possible damage. Am I missing something?

Not sure.
The bad side of me thinks itís just a way to sell more links, the good side of me says maybe there is something I missed here.

I just didnít feel like adding the heavier links on top.

If you run a Artful Dodgers skid, the bent lowers will touch the straight upppers. It will give you the clearance so they do not rub.

I personally prefer straight links on the front.
