So the new crawler is coming together on paper and I'm in an bind. I think my math is right but need to bounce it off some other people. Here's what I'm planing.
I going to do a horizontal watt's links mounted above the rear axle housing. The Axle have a total suspension travel of 14" 4" of compression and 10" of extension. I want to mount a 18" Dia Watt's link on the top of the axle and use 24" arms to both sides. So if you good with math/engineering keep reading.......

For 15" on travel (just a little buffer) the 24" rods should have a delta of 3.785 in length resulting in 24 deg of rotation of the watts link. The angles are important because my heims will only take 32deg before binding.
Before I cut some steel.....What's your take??
