    Chaz,

    Did the shop that built the chassis give you all the dimensions for the link suspension, or is that something that you have been doing on your own???

    For obvious reasons, I'd be interested to know more about the links and if you did the math for anti-squat %, ICs, roll centers, etc.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    no i did not do the suspension...i bought the coil overs and then shipped them and my axles up to him...he did all the figuring for the links..and it was basicly a rolling chassis when i got it...no motor mounts..no winch mount..no nothin..
