Im back and still as "Uninformed" as ever

hey all,

Ive still been reading here and there, but couldnt log in for years. Tried changing passwords/names etc and contacting addmin (freaking joke)... anyway it worked today and good timing!

Im fianlly bulding my 110.

Ive done the longer TAs with as much outboard triangulation at the axle as possible. Im looking to see if I should lengthen the upper A frame arms.

Pinion rotation through bump, droop and travel seem fine with stock A frame. But im curious as to the AS through bump and droop.

With stock A frame it actually increases through bump and decreases through droop (compared to static, not just the rising rate through droop)

Now Obviously the data is only as good as my imput. But in realation to itself is interesting.


Stock A frame and new TAs

Static 70.649%
bump 102.898%
droop 56.984%

With a longer A frame (approx 200mm longer)

Static 70.649%
bump 64.828%
droop 80.474%

Thoughts?

When I four-linked my SWB, I was surprised to learn that the upper mounts were about as well placed as I could hope for. My hope is that individual arms with heims will permit greater articulation in spite of the seemingly wrong upper arm mounting point.

The lower links are quite a bit longer than stock.

Any concern about lack of triangulation for lateral location?

I think I just saw a tumbleweed....

Anyone want to play engineer and hazard a guess on upper material size

At this stage I’m thinking of using 20mm plate to bolt to the ball joint bracket , have the appropriate bend in it so it lines up with the tube and I can slit tube down the centre and weld it in. Approximately 100mm in the tube

Tube I’m thinking 45/30 hollow bar which has near on 10mm wall thickness and is a low alloy steel.

Each arm will weigh approximately 2-3kg more than the stock ones which is not ideal....

I’m using the standard bush at chassis, no spherical bearings on my build
