C3 Pod

I tried to make some links the same but could not. Too many other things to juggle. Not interrupting cargo space was one. Controlling axle wrap and side sway were some others.

I am a bit nervous about how it will track on the highway. the geometry is not perfect. Pushing down on one side makes the axle move back on that side, like most (4) links. That might make trouble. It may turn into a horrific dog tail wagging trailer. Time will tell.

The axle is a 4" 7k lb drop axle (with no camber) turned upside down. Gives me lots of clearance. I still need to box in some brackets and possibly move them some. All in all the height came out great with an old pair of TJ springs.
