i pinched this photo from ebay so if its yours sorry. but can sombody explain how this suspension setup works, as i can see its a r31 diff mini tubed with 4 link setup, what happened to the leafs or does the 4 link setup stop it from going side to side?

I understand what you are saying, there is no "WATTS LINK" or "PANHARD ROD" to stop the laterial movement (sideways) of the diff.

The only thing I can think of is it might be a work in progress/unfinished project.

Its a pretty sexy set up and its giving me some ideas but thats a long way away.

You cant see if the top arms are triangulated or if there is a panhard bar in the front of the diff.

This 4 link does not run a sway bar but you can it would look something like this.(you have 2 one on each side of the case.

panhard rod goes from one side of the diff to the other side of the chassis, stopping side-side movement. I think it means when the suspension moves up and down the diff moves sideways with it?

I know with cars that have them standard they have to be replaced with adjustable ones when lowered as it pushes the diff to one side.

ps. There's a rear setup very much like this on a ute here in canberra, very sexy stuff

The top links look to be triangulated so no panhard or watts link required. very good setup indeed should ride realy good.

triangulated top links will not stop the sideways diff movement if rod ends are used.

it may have a panhard rod hiding in there but i can't see it..
