Dear Welder Series… 1978 3/4t four link?

Dear Welder Series…
I have a 1978 3/4 ton Chevy pick up and am wanting to change out the rear suspension. I got an estimate from a suspension shop and they wanted $2300.00 dollars just for labor!

Do you have a kit (or one that can be adapted)that I can install myself?

Dear Robert…
Robert, Welder Series has a parallel and a triangulated rear suspension kit. Both kits are generic and have been used in a wide range of frames. We put the installation sheets on our website so builders can check mounting point locations and satisfy themselves about the suitability of our kits for their application. (I haven’t built this series truck.)

Please check the installation sheets at and at With the parallel kit you will need a Panhard bar, too.

Thanks for looking at our parts.

Paul Horton
