How much longer should my sway links be?
 
I have the Old Man Emu Medium Duty lift and I think it gave me 3" of lift up front and a little over 3" in the rear due to adding a 1.5" coil spacer.

Should I order links with an extra 2" or 3"? The dicision is confusing to me because of the amount of lift I got from the kit and I know there was some settling.

The fronts should stay the same. Omelet figured that out. For the rear I think 2 inches longer would be good. I plan on upgrading soon as well

I'm actually selling my bwoodys if you'd be interested. I go them made for 2" of lift and after doing so i realized bwoody links run big so they are more suited for a 3" lift. Being as I'm going bAck to a height closer to stock I'm looking to sell my current links- which would be ideal for 3" of lift.

I think I'm going to get the bwoodys. But Rustys also makes some. I bed to check them out. Did you ever put yours on?

been running them for a few months now- actually almost a year i think. no complaints, theyd be alittle more effective if i had another 1/2" or so of lift

Greased fittings or no?
