The numbers are very hard to find indeed, I have been searching for about two months. In that time I have found some good reads but nothing to the extent I was looking for. If you don't mind me asking what is your set up like? What have you tried and found works and doesn't work? Now, when you said that you found a pivot point to be moving under load what paint were you talking about?
Under load the factory bushing was compressing too much and was creating havoc with the long side axle.........I had the distance from pivot to hub, just a little farther then the stock axle could safely move. I too, am trying to use stock axles.
When I was researching, everybody kept telling me to do a "cut and turn", but "Nobody" had any numbers other then one person from my club who had found some information for his ranger.
I ended up cutting the front end of a donor truck off and mounting the front sub to my barn wall so I could cycle the Twin Tortion beams through full movement. I've gone through 4 sets of beams now. I'm not quite ready to release travel numbers yet, like I said earlier, I don't want to give the information out until I get it right.
