Default 4 Link installation help - baggers!

I have a 1999 Ranger XLT that has a 6/9 static drop right now. I am in the process of beginning to bag it and I need some help with setting up a universal 4 link, either a wishbone or a triangulated 4 link. These are the two 4 links I am looking at but I'm not too sure which one I want yet.

If anyone has any information about how to set it up or pictures of 4 link installations or guides or anything like that please get back to me.

i would go onto rangerpowersports.com

There are tons of people on there that are bagged. This site is mostly 4x4s.

Anyways, i'm pretty sure you'll need to relocate your gas tank, from there, i'm not sure. Most guys build there own links because its tons cheaper and you get the perfect fit.

Well its really hard to explain how to set it up, because we dont know how you want it. Google search "how to set up a 4 link". what i do know is important when doing a link is that u make sure your pinion angle is correct and the axle is centered before you weld in the bar end tabs...

solo is right pinion is number one i picked up my ranger already bagged a week ago. the idiot that did it had the rear pinion set -18 degrees from the tranny skeeetchy. also if you are wanting to do alot of side to side i would go with the wishbone the less joints you have the less chance of binding you have. however the normal tri. link (what i have)wont bind too much if at all.

Also make sure all of your bars face forward non of that reverse link crap. It will have negative braking and handling effects.
