I will have to post the calculation results later, but the axle is the weak link in acceleration if the tires are bound up in between rocks. Stock D44 is about 3500 ft-lbs and the chomoly are about 4500 ft-lbs. So if I neglect the lower links and assume I get 4500 ft-lbs per shaft, I will have 27,000 pounds on the upper link.Do you really feel the upper front link will be strong enough? I would be scared myself. Have you done any calcs?
Please send me a reminder PM on Sunday evening, and I'll post the latest. Still not done, I have been on the road for work for the past year I'm really getting the itch to get this done and I am getting close on the chassis!Update?:smokin:
Thanks!Lookin good man!
Unfortunately not... I contemplated it for a bit, but the engine is not offset enough to allow it. The turbo eats up some of the space alloted for a RHD clutch pedal, so it is not possible. It would have been cool, but since I did not plan for it from the start I am unable to change it now.You are making a right hand drive?
Yes, that is exactly what I did.So you just clamped the box on the inside of the passenger rail to compare the links?
