Like how this is turning out. The front end is turning out great and packaging is top notch like it all belongs there. Do you have any pictures yet of the front axle at ride height clearly showing the panhard and steering in relation to the axle front and side view?
On a side note I find it funny the argument of the rear upper heims. Concept has been around a long time. Most of the time it's convenient for packaging and for #'s but it does handle the side loads differently. Not that I've found a case of a broken race due to a side load on a horizontal bolt. And for those who think a triangulated 4 link doesn't have side loads imposed on the joints need to brush up on the physics of that design. The links take all the lateral forces in lou of a panhard bar.
No pictures yet of everything complete at ride height.
Originally we built a double shear pitman arm from a drop pitman arm, but then changed to something new. We will be running steering ram off the pitman arm. Not what we originally planned, but I think it will work out.
