Custom 4-Link Suspension System?

Since I am a descent welder I was contemplating designing and welding up a 4-Link suspension system for my truck. Anyone with any worthwhile advice or tips to share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

if you have the skills and the machinery to pull it off, your best bet would be to try and replicate what camburg or such companies have done.

there is an episode of extreme 4x4 that spent a good deal of one episode on fabricating a rear 4 link.
