Ladder Bar is cheaper than 4 Link. You should expect to spend at a minimum of $4,000 to $5,000 for a back half suspension.Could be more

Re: cost of tubbing

Also something to consider is doing your own mini-tubbing. Not as much cutting but can still fit 335/345 sized tires in the rear.

If you or a friend can weld you can do it yourself:

Re: cost of tubbing

mini tub and put the dse quadra link in....youll like the look..pro street is outdated unless your dragracing (imo)...p.s. i think it kills the value of the car too when you go to sell it..

Any cut you make and change of original panel to tub or minitub changes the value and quality of the job and the ride are what will matter.Its all in what you want me personaly I like the biggest tire that will fit and still retain the trunk hinges.My son is 14 and the 70 Chevelle is going to be a big tire as well that he is going to build.

This is what we want to hear Clayton,but you do need to think about how and what you want the ride and the look to be.Are you going to drag race and how far are you driving on a daily basis.I cant believe I just said this me loving the big tire look and all and futher more if I go to a show all that catches my eye is the fat tire cars.I say do your research and collect or borrow all your funds for the car and make sure all your ducks are in a row.I think the funds are the biggest part of slowing projects down along with not getting the right and qualified preson or persons to do the work.Which ever choice you make there are many here to guide you in the right direction....

Clayton..........adding to what David Calligan posted, I would also encourage to take the time to "get it right" the first time, talk to several chassis shops and explain to them exactly what you want to achieve with your car....even if you think it's insignificant to them...if you don't specify anything, they will build the car the way they want and you'll end up being disappointed.
