Part of what took me so long to stick a Ford 9" rearend in a thirty year old Mazda was my insistence that the suspension have a completely full range of articulation without binding. I had to compromise the suspension geometry a bit, and shave the top of the pumpkin for Watts linkage clearance, and do some unhealthy things to the Watts bellcrank, but I got it to work.Nefario wrote: ↑Wed Aug 01, 2018 12:31 pmI'll suggest that most builders have never heard of 6 degrees of freedom or understand what that means. You also need to be able to visual the 6 motions and how they are controlled. Or just use rubber bushings and let parts bend...which is fine in many applications.
Most people just figure the suspension barely moves, so who cares.
