Jason, pictures of building your rear suspension?

Do you have some pictures of you building your rear suspension? I tried searching and didn't find the ones I swear I saw before.

I couldn't find that perusing your site.

Here is a question for you, if you make the lower links say 10" shorter than the upper links would it help keep the pinion pointed at the transfer case output?

Re: Jason, pictures of building your rear suspension?

Yeah but I suggest you do alot more reading on link suspensions if you want to design a decent one... Start learning how to calculate roll center, roll axis, anti-squat, what more axle vertical seperation does for you, etc.

Yes the 4 link page has been there since January of 2004.

Re: Jason, pictures of building your rear suspension?

Well, there is some stuff I don't understand like "roll oversteer angle" and how much is bad.

Another one is antisquat. 75-95% at static height seems to be "good". However, how much is "good" at full compression and full droop?

Roll center height on a car is good at around 12"... what about a truck? 24"?

Triaged made a nice little Excel worksheet that does the calculations for you.

Here is the one I filled out with what I was thinking

Re: Jason, pictures of building your rear suspension?

Hey I had a hand in making that spreadsheet... Triaged and Greg are both in my 4x4 club...

Anywho, I would say to get your roll center as high as possible. Getting it over the height of your cg could have some interesting effects such as the truck leaning up hill when side hilling, could be kinda cool!

I'll look at the spread sheet in a bit...
