    I got bored yesterday, and spent about an hour putting this together.

    It's basically a tool like ExcelCAD, but for the 2WD crowd. It lets you play around with tire/wheel combinations and frame heights, to look for interferences, etc. The frame in this screenshot clearly needs a rear "C-notch" based on it's ride height. :eek1:

    My plan is to lower the '72 Burb on an AirRide suspension system, so as I develop this tool further I'll be able to select the mounting points for the front A-arms to get the proper geometry, and calculate how much "notch" I'll need out back to get the stance correct.

    Anyway, it's got a long way to go but I thought I'd show what happens when the snow has been falling too long, and there's no workshop to play in.


    Check it out..... :usaflag:
