Designing front link suspension
I have been looking around for information on designing a link suspension with coils for my Zook. I have found a lot on the rear suspension but really nothing about the front end. I have been reading through this Truck Suspensions, Four-Link Suspensions, and Suspension Installs - Part 2 - 4 Wheel & Off Road
and have plotted it all out for my zook as it states. It looks as though I should be able to get the rear end within limits of this article without too many problems. The problem I do have is that I cannot find anything pertaining to the front suspension. I do not even know what sort of linkage would be best suited. My Zook will see a lot of highway use as well so it must handle well on the road. I know there will be some compromise because of this but thats fine, I have never planned it to be an extreme hard core offroad vehicle. Should I look at a 3 link, 4 link, 5 link or something else? Are there any tech docs out there such as the above covering the front suspension?
