go to these links to see a three link system that goes to the frame. We have done them on two early model Taco's, a late model Taco and an FJ cruiser. Strong as hell and awesome flex with good road manners.

Project 07 FJ Cruiser SAS

Here are some pictures for you of the trucks. They all have the same three link system on them. The FJ nd the older Taco use's Johny Joints at both ends of the links and the '05 Taco use's huge 11/4" hiem joints at the axle end and johny joints at the frame on the links.








They all three use different front axles for the swap. The '02 Taco use's the tried and true Dana 44 out of a Jeep Wagoneer.
The Fj Cruiser use's an awesome Diamond axle housing with an FJ80 high pinion center section with elocker.
And the '05 Taco use's a Massive Currie Enterprise's Rock Jock 60 with 35 spline axles 5.38 gears and ford F-450 1 ton knuckles and unit bearings. Super Super strong.

Three different axles on three different trucks that all use the same three link system.

Chris, here are some pics of my set up. I went off the frame, sacrificed some ground clearence for streetability. The ground clearence really hasn't been an issue.

Here you can see the passenger side frame mount and the upper link mount bolt through the frame;

Drivers side;

All 3;



More pics are here;

If you do a crossmember then it has to be removable and then you have to unhook the front suspension for trans removal????

Good luck.

My top link is almost level with the bottom links. This weekend I'll get some numbers for you so you can have an idea of how we set it up.
