g-Bar Canted-4-Bar Suspension System

Billet g-Link Coil-Over SuspensionChassisworks' second generation g-Bar and g-Link systems represent the current state-of-the-art in canted-4-bar suspension design. The g-Bar system consists of three different combinations of upper and lower link bars with your choice of VariShock coil-over or air-spring shocks. These options create six different variations to better suit your particular performance application. Each can be used with our vehicle-specific bolt-in FAB9™ housing or the vehicle’s existing housing.

Adjustable Geometry

Upper and lower suspension link mounting brackets feature multiple positions to adjust chassis anti-squat and optimize vehicle handling. Upper links are length adjustable to set pinion angle and suspension preload if needed. g-Link lower arms are also adjustable for wheelbase variations and precise housing alignment.

Adjustable Shock Mounts

Billet aluminum double shear lower shock mounts bolt directly to the back of the lower control arm bracket and provide 4-1/2 inches of ride height adjustment. The three-position upper shock mount allows additional ride height adjustment, with the ability to provide increased stiffness for improved cornering or softer ride without changing springs.

System Options

VariShock coil-over or air-spring shocks;single- or double-adjustable valving; direct-fit FAB9™ housing or bolt-on axle brackets (for use with existing housing); urethane, pivot-ball, or billet pivot-ball suspension links; splined-end or sliding-link anti-roll bar.

Shock Options
VariShock

Coil-Over Shocks

A traditional coil-over configuration enables the ability to accurately corner-balance the vehicle by varying spring preload, and offers predictable suspension tuning results. A selection of spring rates, ranging from 110 to 350 lb/in., are available to match your vehicle's performance requirements.

Air-Springs Shocks

Air spring equipped systems offer instant ride-height and ride-quality adjustment in single- or double-adjustable versions. When fully deflated, the vehicle rests 5-6” inches below stock ride height and can be raised to driving height at the push of a button. An air management compressor system (available separately) is required for operation.

Anti-Roll Bar Options

Sliding-Link Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar

The sliding-link anti-roll bar system features a 5/8”-diameter, solid bar mounted to the same frame adapter brackets as the g-Bar suspension cradle for a complete bolt-on installation. Our unique sliding-link mechanism, utilizes three distinct indents at each end of the anti-roll-bar lever to create six incremental adjustments. The sliding-link anti-roll bar system can be used on the entire family of g-Bar suspensions.

Sliding-Link Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar

Splined-End Tubular Anti-Roll Bar

Our splined-end anti-roll bar system features a 3/4”-diameter, bent-tube design, that mounts below the rearend housing. An adjustable, billet-pivot-socket mechanism threads into the g-Bar lower axle-bracket sleeve, and allows the bar to rotate smoothly in a play-free joint. Billet-aluminum arms extend forward, and are connected to the chassis through links consisting of adjustable-length, 3/8” rod-end assemblies. The splined-end anti-roll bar system can be used on the entire family of g-Bar suspensions.

Splined-End Tubular Anti-Roll Bar

Note: Anti-roll-bar mounts are integrated into the g-Bar brackets system and must be selected at time of g-Bar purchase.

Rearend Housing Options

g-Bar Direct-Fit FAB9™ Housings

Chassisworks g-Bar FAB9™ offers exceptional performance, reliability, and adjustability in a bolt-on, factory-welded housing, complete with all suspension brackets. Housings are engineered for proper clearance using either VariShock coil-overs or ShockWave® air suspension; with or without a back brace. Anti-roll-bar bracket options include chassis mounted (sliding-link bar), axle-housing mounted (splined-end bar), or no anti-roll-bar brackets installed.

Narrowed Housing Widths

Housings can be built to standard widths for OEM wheel offsets or narrowed to accommodate wider tire and wheel combinations. Widths can be narrowed in 1/4” increments to the wheel-to-wheel minimum.
