i like this platform.
it makes for a great start to a good offroad suspension from what ive read/can see for myself.

before i take the arms off n make a jig

does anyone have the mounting point dimensions?

im going to do a 5" over set of arms n spindle in solidworks
for a school project. and if i can tweak it to get good geometry
n keep all the physics within a tolerable range
im going to build a few sets.

anyone have any experience fabbing for this truck????


i could use some advice as far as wether or not to use the stock upper arm mounts
or if i should just go with a j arm setup.


thanks!

any help is appreciated

im working on it as we speak
ended up only doing 4.5" extended 1.25" forward
5.5" lift spindle ... its a j arm setup now with bump off the spindle
havent driven it cuz were waiting for shocks to get back from valving
i think we'll have some bumpsteer issues but theres no visible camber change throughout cycle
with a little work to the jig's i made and if i figure out how to make an engine cage "kit" this entire front suspension is easily reproducible!!!!!!!
ill have numbers on everything after we get those shocks back
and get the truck over the whoops and in the air!!!!!

until then im just gonna twiddle my thumbs and start designing
my subaru powered extended cab toyota!!!!!!

ill upload pictures as soon as i figure out where i put the cord to my camera!!!!!!!!
