Allen Cox came up on April 11 and spent a good portion of the day with the Shop class designing and building a front suspension with minimal bump steer similar to larger rails.
The concept is that the arms are parallel in the X and y orientations.
Using rod ends and inserts from ROD END SUPPLY.
High misalignment inserts allow the rear component of the front arms to move is a circle compared with the front arms that move up and down.
Banshee stock spindles and tie rods set the length of the arms.
The upper arms are set back about 1 inch or 10 degrees to allow the wheels to lean into the corners.
