  1. I’m guessing 8” wide or more? Also guessing you already had them... and I probably should not say this as you can’t change what you have done, but if building custom housings why not make them wider and go positive offset.. you get a few benefits. I also would have triangulated your rear trailing arms. but keep at it bud. 👍
  2. every bit helps. What rim size and offset/backspace are you running?
  3. A lot of the after market bolts are junk, no mater what grade or class is stamped on them. If the Genuine ones are in ok condition, clean and reuse.
  4. Can you push the axle end of lowers outwards to gain a little triangulation? That would lower Axle Roll Axis. Or remote your oil filter, move both upper and lowers up to get a similar Anti lift number with lower ARA. If you are keeping the stock Radius arm mount and building custom off that, make sure your arm doesn’t fowl on it at full up cross articulation.
  5. The only way you will do that is by raising the chassis end of your 3rd link. Im sure you have done what you can, but with those chassis limitations, your anti lift is going to suck.
  6. What am I missing? Looking at the lower link angles in side elevation, how the hell are they +1 and -2 Axle roll axis angle? looks like the uppers are determining that ? why would that be? Anti lift isnt great, Imo not sure youd notice a difference between those two high numbers, but the roll stiffness you would.
  7. They are Design and Development Engineering. I mentioned them just a few posts prior...
  8. Has anyone here looked into the Design and Developments Engineering kits? Should be available soon. 370 quid by the sounds of it. Looks like early 90/110 caliper
  9. There is a good chance welding those spring seats and caliper brackets on have put your ends out of allignment. You really should be using an alignment bar once all is finished, then if out bend true with a porta power. As a note, welding the small Maxidrive difflock acuator weld on block to a rover housing requires about 5-6mm of pre stress in the housing, and that is a little 90x60mm rectangle block.
  10. If your truss stops short of the ends, say inside the coil mounts not much point. Maybe better off running a back brace full length. keep up the good work though. Good to see something different
  11. Regarding the comment of spring rates higher in the rear. There is a couple of reasons to do that. To tune the roll stiffness of the links. You can use a anti roll bar, but springs is a sort of cheat. Of course this is determined by the link set up front and rear, and their roll stiffness compared to each other. The other reason is spring frequency. The rear should always be higher than the front. Its got to do with pitch and ride etc. Yes weight over axle will determine spring rate, but unless very very light rear, the rate would be somewhere the same or higher in the rear. cheers
  12. Was there a reason to run it centred? does it make fabrication easier for you?
  13. IMO I would run it offset, not only for alignment of prop shaft, but for offroading.
  14. Wheel base has no effect on articulation. Springs and shocks are only "tuning" the available articulation. The front radius arm set up has a higher roll stiffness than the rear "A frame/trailing arm" set up. Getting the front to perform to its best and tuning the rear to suit is a good start. The early narrow radius arms offer more articulation over the later wider type. Bush brand will also determine the amount of articulation to a degree. Softer the better (as long as they last) Not all polyurethane bushes are the same hardness. The two limiting factors (for articulation) of a Ra
  15. I know this is an old thread, but the bolts on my 98’ 110 were not metric, but imperial UNF from factory ( marked Atlas) the 1/2” at A frame arms to ball joint connection are grade 8 and the two big 3/4” at end of A frame arm to chassis are grade 5. So I’m not sure how a 92 would be metric? Class for metric and Grade for SAE don’t line up. Grade 8 is about same as Class 10.9
