If you don't want to go with aluminum you could always just truss your lower links and mount your C/O's to the link itself.


Something like this:



But I'd probably keep the DOM straight and build the truss/mount down the full length of the tube.

no, it won't. I have been running an OE rubber carrier bearing on my buggy since day one, and haven't replaced it. It soaks up all the driveline NVH and doesn't get whipped out like a bearing that gets dust in it. And it weights a LOT less

What application bearing are you running? Do you have a pic of how you have it set up?

I was just curious because of events like Snofari that require it.

"street legal" when pulled over being questioned
"Street legal" plates and insurance.... I will have this, as it will be titled as the eb with the vin on the glove box door.

My eb wasn't street legal when I did snofari last year, but I had plates and insurnace on it everytime it left my driveway.

Why not title it as an assembled vehicle like they do with the dune buggys?

lots of loop holes to jump through and police inspection. and ins rates will be stupid high as an assembled vehicle too, easier to fudge it. if it looks like an eb then it is right?
