    I like the use of the factory center crossmember....

    Cut the tops off the perch pins and welded them to the wishbones. Tied the two together using some dog bones. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1420213703.240735.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1420213717.425619.jpg

    Interesting plan for the rear shocks, I'm curious to see how well they control.

    I have seen it done before to, there are a lot of factors that come into play on whether or not they control the axle .
