my project

What do you think? Its obviously not done and nothing is permanent yet
That upper link will be remade out of round tubing so that the Johnny joint isnt maxed out. Square is all I had left and I wanted to get something tacked up.

Very nice...... how do you keep the inner body so straight

So the front "A" is supposed to work like your trackbar, but isn't it going to bind on compression/droop of the whole axle....such as a jump. On droop, the radius arms will want to pull the axle toward the back of the truck, and the "A" will want to pull it forward........compression just the opposite....did I miss something?

How did you figure out how tall the center link mount needed to be? Nice job, I thought it would be to hard to figure out all the BS with a front mounted wish bone, but you make it look easy.

Got pics Mark? I didn't know you were doing this too. I originally got the idea from a guy who doesn't even go near here (the pirate board that is)

Its not a true wishbone, look closely and you can see the tubing inside tubing. The A will become longer and shorter as the axle drops or stuffs. I only have the axle mount that high to leave room for my steering. Im also considering relocating the whole thing behind the axle and under the motor, would be great for driveshaft and oil pan protection.

Oh, ok thanks for pointing out the obvious to me . I thought about using a slip/spline from a 1510 series or bigger driveline, since I have access to it, but I'm lazy.

haha you're a freak Aaron! Now.. why did you go with a front mounted A arm instead of a rear mounted one, given that you're going with full hydro steering? Im curious

Looking good Aaron. Have one Q though I noticed the long arms that go towards teh middle of the truck that the one on teh driverside goes to the bottom of the axle tube and teh one on teh pass side goes to the top of teh axle tube. Think this will cause any problems or benefits to this?

Matt

It was easier to mock up for now, I'm not positive it will fit behind the axle and under the motor... but i'll probably try it anyways. Like I already said though, it would be killer for driveshaft and oil pan protection

Technically it's a wristed arm suspension and I can't think of any logical reason (in my head... haha) that says I can't attach the wristed arm wherever in relation to the axle tube.

I am curious to know where you got the brackets for the "radius arms" to the frame? Setup looks good!
