/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif No sweat on the top-loader truss system. What you do is have an upside down shape like a crochet(crow-kay) wicket(does anyone still remember that game?). The ends set on the spring pads, and the truss crosses over the housing. You drop "suspenders to the housing right where the tubes go in. Force drives hub and wheel up....pivoting on the spring pad where the load resistance is located...the spring pad tilts and tries to let the center section bend to the ground, but the suspender system prevents it. The truss also has "section" front to back for resistance to bending in the horizontal./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif The TAZ design is a good one. He wants to be sure that the attachment points of the truss are "buttoned" on in many small places and not few large ones...maybe a 3/8 of diameter tube segment with lots of small welds./wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif
