The rear suspension will be a four-link suspension with two upper links converging at the center of the rear axle and two lower links running near the ends of the axle inward slightly to each substructure of the chassis. Since the upper links are less likely to be hitting rocks and other trail obstacles, they will be made of 1 3/4-inch DOM with threaded bungs welded in for the rod ends rather than the more expensive swedged/threaded/heat-treated chromoly lower links. However, all the links will be the same size so that a single spare link can be carried in the unlikely event one is ever broken.
