Is there a 4 Bar Link Calculator online? Or is that software you have to go get?

You'll need excel to run it.

Not to hijack, but I've got a question for you 4 link gurus......as for the COG, does it need to be the COG on all three axis or just the latteral axis front to rear? If so how do you calculate this? I can get Latteral by weighing front and rear axles separately, but how do you get the other two?

Enter your front and rear weights and it calculates it front to rear, side to side is assumed to be in the center. Heigth is the tricky one, most just use the center of the crank. To calculate it you need portable scales and a lift, or you could tilt it until it balences on two wheels but I couldn't find a good way to do it.

One more thing, the roll center only works for a true four link, if you run a trac bar this number as well as the roll axis will be invalid, anti squat will still work though.
