Full Size Truck - Watts Link Kit

No idea if this is any good but it doesn't look hard to build one.

This is for 4th gen trucks with 4 link rear suspension. It keeps the axle centered. From factory they use a single bar that makes the axle move on a radius from one frame rail. At factory ride height the geometry is such that side movement is minimal. Lowering really makes it feel squirrelly because the single bar will pull the axle to the side farther as the rear goes down especially during launch. Launching with a lifted truck doesn't do this because the back squats closer to factory ride height.
