So the long pitman arm to slider will not work also too wide.
I had some time waiting for my Ansys run to finish so I modeled it up quickly.
I just modeled blocks no reason to make High tech models for this.
I thought taking out the piston will free up some room I can probably save a little...
I'm building a rear engine 4x4 IFS buggy.
I'm using single swing arm and putting the frame mounts in line with the inner CV.
This allows for full uses of the outer CV angle for steering since there is no compound angle.
If you couldn't figure it out this is more of a rock crawler/rock racer...

Most Dana 35 came with C-clips but same came without.

Replacing the axle components is not going to fix your problem in the long run.
That is a small axle for a heavy Grand Cherokee with a 5.2L that was one of the fastest SUVs.

I too have never seen a rock crawlers use dry sump. How long do those bearings last without oil?
I guess you wouldn't be building a lot of HP with the tires barely on the ground.
At first I was thinking of using an accusump but you still need oil pressure to fill it, there only good for...
Is an automatic transmission dry sump possible?
Rock crawling puts you in some extreme angles I don't want to starve my transmission, I can feel it start slipping in the extreme angles even with it a little over filled.
Has anyone ever made a dry sump for an Automatic transmission.
My goal is to be able to run everything upside down without consequences.
Rock Crawling you're eventually going to roll and its worth hitting the gas to get it to roll back over. But that cannot be good running the engine with no Oil Pressure.
So I was thinking.
If I get a 3 or 4 stage...
What is the best for fuel pick up so you always get fuel.
I have a fuel cell but the pick up is in the front/middle (drag racing summit fuel cell in backwards) I rather not be able to get up the hill then have it stall coming down.

I'm designing an ultra light off road buggy.
I want to use the Honda K series engine.
Does anyone have recommendations on where and what brand to get for a completely stand alone engine management system with wiring harness.
This is the best I could find in my searches...
I think he is talking about Axle steer the axle rotating not Bump steer tie rod length change. I plan on going full Hydro.
The binding is what I've always afraid of as one moves up and moves one down they want to twist in opposite directions.
I guess it works in stock vehicles like on TJs...
Panhard with 3 or 4 Links?
With a Panhard parallel link Suspension I see people running 3 links and some running 4 links.
What are the pro's and con's 3vs4 links?
I read through all the suspension pages and search the internet but I couldn't find the information I wanted. I was hoping to...
