Reducing roll in a 3-Link on road???


Recommended Posts

So what's the best way to have the flexibility of a 3-Link off-road, but stiffen it up on-road to reduce roll in corners??

Is it to fit an anti-roll bar with dislocating mounts? Or is there an alternative?

A 3-Link is something I'd like to do in 07, and slighty stiffen a 3-Link set-up for on-road. I've plenty of experience driving a 3-Link on-road and in my view with the right springs it doesn't need much work to make it ok.

Won't raising the roll centre give more weight transfer on the axle (ie you'll have less grip, but you'll feel less alarmed...) ?

That probably would be the case if you went a long way up, but I dont see a problem going up a couple of inches so that the front roll centre is closer to the rear roll centre. The rear RC on a standard vehicle is some 5'' higher than the front.

Steve, the previous thread on 3 links and alternatives had a new system called X-link, you can lock this up for road or release for 3-link equivalent travel, only been done in Oz as far as I know.


I will be doing something simerlar in due course.
