Front suspension set up air/rack and pinion
« on: February 06, 2021, 03:59:55 PM »
I was talking to Blackwater about this on another post. I'm putting a straight axle on a scratch built rod. I have triangulated four bar for anti roll for and aft and side to side. Air bag on bottom rods to get my ride hight.(the Frame will be on the ground when parked)
This is what I have so far. Everything is just tacked to see if it's really going to work. I'm waiting for Mustang II rack to mount to the front of the axle. I am making friction shocks to come off the side of the frame at the front an go to the rear of the axle and connect with a link.

  Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

Looks like the suspension part should work.  i'm thinking you will want to add a sway/anti roll bar as your mounting points a all inboard of the frame.

I'm interested to see how you mount and use the steering rack.
