DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

A few people had asked me about these links and about getting pictures, so here are a few.








Those are just HREW "pipe" links with weld in bungs and greasable Johnny joints. It's a combination of a Heim and a poly joint that is fully rebuildable. They shouldn't wear out anywhere near as fast as a Heim, and they should not clink and clank like a heim.

I have less than 300 in the links. The brackets are Pro Comp. I think they can be had brand new for 150 or so.

Re: DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

Is it just me, or does it look like those arms will hit the spring hanger if the wheel is stuffed? Should they have a longer frame bracket to compensate?

Re: DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

Tank- nice videos man!
Charles- definately a nice setup. have you had to replace anything on them since you made them? looks like a sturdy, long-lasting design.

Re: DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

I did those exact style on my 7.3 but I tried it w/ 1" and it bent the $hit out of them so I did them again out of tubing and then built gusetts and another tube on top to get it to work. I shoulda just used larger and stayed w/ a single bar like you did.

Re: DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

I made a set for mine, out of .25 wall DOM, with possibly the same JJ's as you seem to have used (mine had 1.25 shank size, and 9/16 through bolt.) However, I made a set of brackets, that I welded to the front spring hangar, and welded to the axle. And then welded the axle tubes, to the pumpkin. I cycled the suspension (with our skid loader), before attatching the front bolt, and the way I did it, there was only about a 1/16" of forward, and rearward movement from were my hole was. Other then the fact theres no axlewrap now, there is absolutely no affect on ride. Basically turned the rear suspension into a 4 link, like youve (charles) always said about.

DRW and tow fast parts.......

Re: DD Friendly Anti-wrap Links

Charles, nice simple setup especially if it gets rid of the heim banging.

Sidetrack but what fuel filter setup do you run and how are those tires holding up?
