ideally you want unequal length arms, with proper geometry it will keep the contact patch of the tire square to the gound while the chassis leans. look up trophy trucks and class 1 cars for examples.
if you are going to actually go through with making a chassis and you want it to hold up you might as well make it correctly so you are satisfied with the results.
