Default Went back to basics

I bought this swb a couple of years ago that had a rear 4 link. Then went to full leaf springs and back to rear 4 link with z boxes and shackles. Anyway enough with the rambling.

Since my original plan was to go with leaf I did just that. I have a trx4 so that is my linked rig and I love both types.

I've tried the z box and shackles on both front and rear and did not like the fact that the axles moved a lot and raised the truck to much. Mostly the z boxes do.

I did my own leaf anti wrap bar using one of the links using parts from the link setup as well. I ended up only using the terraflex shackles in the rear. I left the z boxes off.

I was using proline scaler shocks but the 90mm are to long. Using the original shocks for now until I figure which shocks to use.

Onto some pics

Great looking bronco body. The z box's and shackles aren't for everyone. I love them on my tf. Like you said you have a trx4 for the dark side, lol. Me too love them both. They drive way different.

As you've found the Z-boxes and folding shackles raise the trucks COG and usually adversely affect the crawling characteristics. I don't/won't run them in 1:1 or RC. BTW great looking Bronco body!
