    I'm just wondering if anyones has completed one recently? I've done a search and have seen all the old posts. Has anyone came up with anything new? I'm planing on using square stock instead of tube (no bender) Does anyone know of any option I can use for bushings other than stock clamshells? For better clearance. I would like to keep them on the cases not the frame.

    Using those bushing alone. Will that give me sufficient flex? Or should I also have some kind of bushings where the crossmember hooks to frame?

    I did both because I didnt want to have any issues. It also made it easier to tie into the frame. Another thing to note is I also changed my motor mounts to poly.
