    Lonestar DC2 vs DC4 no link swingarm

    Anyone have pics of the differences in these? I always thought the DC2 had the lower shock mount around the same location as the stock swingarms linkage mount, while the DC4 lower shock mount was more towards the middle and bottom of the swingarm.

    I ordered a DC4 no link swingarm from Lonestar yesterday and while talking to the guy on the phone, he said the DC2 vs DC4 lower shock mounts were only about a 1/8" or so different from one another. Didn't think much of it while I was still on the phone, as I was told the DC4 would be the better setup for desert racing so that is what I ordered. Now that I have had more time to think about it, I thought the lower mounts were alot further off then just an 1/8", just wondering if Lonestar redesigned the DC2 from what I thought it was and maybe that would be better for my setup. Figured I would call Lonestar back on Monday also and get a little more info from them, but in the meantime, just wanted to see what everyone knows about Lonestar no link swingarms.

    Spoke to Lonestar today, figured I would add what I found out in case anyone ever needs info in the future. I misunderstood the 1/8" part, there is only a 1/8" difference between the recommended lengths of shock for each swingarm. Basically, on both swingarms, the lower shock mount is at the bottom of the swingarm, but the DC4 is a little lower. The DC2 lower mount is closer to the axle, while the DC4 mount is closer to the frame. The DC4 was designed to be used on hybrids, where more airbox clearance was needed. I still went with the DC4, since I was told to use it by a suspension guy I trust and figure a more upright shock is always a good thing.

    Are you using a stock frame or no-link frame? I've been wanting to convert to a no-link but I'm just too tight. I was checking out the KOQ racing one. It is similar to a roll lobo swingarm and can be used with a stock frame. They are only 399.

    Using a no-link frame. Along with that swingarm, I also ordered a new no link frame to go with it, along with some other stuff. I spent way to much money with Lonestar last Friday! Should have everything in a few weeks. Once I do, plan on starting a build thread. Finally going to build the 250R I have always wanted!
