I mocked up the suspension last night.

Shit is gonna be tight with a 42" bench trailing arms coilovers bypass shocks and 40's all fighting for real estate....but I think I got everything in a working location..
Before the comments come in the dual shocks are just to give me an idea of where the bypass shocks will fit and what type of clearance Ill have.


From full bump to full droop the suspension travels 27" the driveshaft moves 6" through the cycle. At full droop im at 40 degrees on the transfer case yoke. if I clock the tcase flat and lower the driver train I can probably get to 30-33 degrees at the tcase yoke.
pretty steep angle so I might strap the suspension. well see how it works out.

Full bump with 39" tire


full stuff articulated.








2" between tire and shock at full articulated bump




full articulated droop




one finger width at full articulated droop between shock and frame



Full droop




once everything is in place I will be boxing the shocks/wheel well in so from inside it will be finished off nice and the shocks will be tucked up in the quarter panel.

Also I will be changing the way the frame side upper hiem mounts I was hoping I could run it flat but you can see by the slight bend in the pvc link the hiem is maxed so I will be changing that also.

You HAVE to put re-bar in the PVC links if you don't want them to break. Glad to see you have your rear upper forward mounts close to the right spot.

Looks great, nice progress! I don't see a problem with limit strapping it, 27" of travel is a bit excessive if you're not racing KOH with this thing.

I have 7 1/2" of separation between the center line of the upper and lower hiems on the frame side. With the lowers running straight I was not sure I would have enough triangulation in the uppers if they were run on the inside of the frame. I have not weighed out the inner location yet. just started with this set up to make sure I could cycle everything with out hitting the shocks or seat.

I am going to take some measurements and enter it all into a 4 link calculator to see where the best mounting locations will be.
I just wanted to get it cycled to see if the tire would clear everything before I went too much farther.
Don't worry I took your input serious....right up until I seen every where....

Thanks, I have been scratching my head for a while on how to do the rear, I really wanted to run trailing arms but with the back seat its made it very difficult. I am really happy to see it working out.

check the offset of those rims compared to your racelines.

make sure the driveshaft angles won't bind the joints, or that will be the limiting factor of your droop.

well DUH... what do you think I have been doing for the past couple weeks while I stare at this thing....lol There has been some hillbilly bench testing and reverse measuring going on...lol

the racelines are about 3/4 more offset so that will actually help.
However this is the worst case scenario since its at 27" of travel and it will be strapped on the droop the bump will remain in the same location. So I should have plenty of room

I can always go 2 wheel drive and use the full 27" travel then I can FULLY get it....haha


Ron Burgundy whats wrong with Iroks???

Nothing. I just figured you buggy guys would be running something more sophisticated.

Im not a buggy guy... I have a Bronco and a rzr. (although I had them on my last buggy and thought they worked good for a all around tire)

I was going to run the new MTRS till I seen how well chevotass worked
I am still completely in the air on tires. this is just what I was able to get my hands on for mock up. I really want treps. but Im broke and cant offered them...
Not all of us can stickys for rocks, another set for trails and another set for the mall and ice cream shop....lol
