Did you remove the yoke nuts so the axles can float? Very nice.

Ahh! Great work! Any thoughts about marketing the suspension pieces or kits?

Yes v8vair, yoke nuts removed and plugged. yokes only move an 1/8 of an inch during full up and down travel. Yes solo2r we would like to put this together as a kit, but you would still have to send in your front crossmember for the mounting modifications, plus spindals, center link, and steering arm modifications. Unless youve got the means to take care of it.

Are you concerned about camber gain with the unequal upper link on the rear suspension? LeVeque's kit mounts the 3rd link a little higher and is equal length to keep the top from coming in when it squats down. Great work, just food for thought.

Hi Mike, good looking out, if you noticed the top is not mounted in the picture. I will post some new pics tomarrow , just didnt have time today. The new pics will show a totally different mounting point and equal lenth upper and lower bars for correct movement of hub assembly..
