Ok, being a college student and being exposed to all this engineering stuff my brain is going 100mph, and I can't find the brakes. Two questions at the moment and more to follow I"m sure. 1) What are the major drawbacks of IFS other than cost, and the half shafts being a weak link? Advantages other than Ground Clearance? 2) Any idea what kind of torque would be applied to the U-joints at the wheel end of the half shaft? Guestimating a 500 ft/lb engine. or any other torque amount you may know thanks Les Like em big and topless You call THAT...a 4x4....LMAO?
