Anyone tried to run a rear axle in the front using a wishbone as a top likc centered on the axle and using 2 rams as the outer links? us the rams to rotate the whole axle? Basicly like those go carts we all built when we were 5?

If it's setup so that the push and pull of the opposite cylinder are valved together, it might work pretty good. And yes, I did have too much time to think today. And yes, I have my flame resistant thong on.

could have drive shaft problems

Drive shaft problems, yes. If there's 2 wishbones that are in the same plain as the u-joint, that would lock the pinion angle in place. With the u-joint being on the same plain will leave only one direction to pivot. As far as tire clearance goes, strech it out and leave them out hanging. Not sure about how to spring it.

That's what I was thinking. A leaf spring on a pivot attached to the axle with some shackles. Aor shocks would be nice, but too much coin. A coil on the hyd. cyl would also do it. There would be a bit of movement, but doable.

l used to drive an articulating wheel loader. turned well when moving forward or back. but had a lot of side to side movment when stoped.

Always broke

There was a Toyota at stave a few years ago that did it on the rear..


Also if you want to spring it try what STranger did and run A leaf spring transferse and outboard your shocks, kewl idea always wanted to try something out of the ordinary!!
