Sixteen-inch-travel ORI struts are used in the rear suspension, but unlike the front the rear is a four-link setup. The upper links are made from 1-inch-diameter solid stress proof chromoly and they’re fitted with QA1 spherical rod ends at the chassis and Teraflex rubber bushing ends at the axle. The lower links are from Rock Ware. Speaking of the axle, it’s a GM 14-bolt and inside the West Texas Off Road cover there’s a Detroit Locker and a set of 3.73 cogs. Braking comes from 3/4-ton GM truck-application brake rotors and ’78 Cadillac Eldorado disc brakes mounted using Cutthroat 4x4 brackets.
