Hey guys, first i wanna say, ive only bought 1 thing from u guys, and i was extremely happy with it. I wish i knew of you guys 5 yrs ago.... anyways, i have a bagged 98 ext cab. with a v8/6 spd....... i have that terrible cando reverse 4 link, and with the power it makes, it hops all over the place..... this was my 4th crappy 4 link! which one would u guys suggest? i was looking at the 5 link backhalf, but its so expensive..... basically, i need to know what'll ride well, and def. has to be able to spin the tires..... hopefully, this will be my last 4 link, cuz the wasted money is killing me..... thanks

That one right there for $649.99 or get the bushing one for $75 less..
so this woudl be the best for us with v8 power and still want to roast the tires w/o worrying about wheel hop and all?

look away from the 'bagging' link kits.
they are designed for the suspension travel.

if you want no wheel hop, you need a geometry that is designed for traction.
which, btw is not going to be true throughout the suspension travel.

If you really want to put power to the ground, then I would suggest going with a fuel cell and a custom link thats is gonna be designed for it. There's no be all end all kit that will do everything. If you want bolt on and you want to work around the stock tank, then you have to make sacrifices to the link design that will effect performance.
