hey there

Do you need some internal springs?

I can give you the same ones I used in my Augusta Build and I also have some that are a tiny bit firmer (to counter act torque twist.

They are $1 a piece. I paid 0.67 but I had to buy $50 worth, and a bunch of them were way too hard.

that'd be great rene....$50? surely thats a typo!

Im gonna try to turn down the stock TLT shocks, never done it before, but how hard can it be. Then im gonna mount the coil spring around the tlt shock on the front axle (ever seen how a dodge 4x4 sets up their coils and shocks? same thing on a land rover, im gonna try to mimmick that) the rear will have conventional shock location.

Turning down shocks is not hard at all Reid but just make sure you chuck it up straight.

still no pics, but ive got a roller. still need to mount the shocks and nail down the electronics.

this 1.9 stuff is kinda new to me...and im not even a master a 2.2 i think im gonna have too much flex.

gonna do a scale landy....with 4 link, but if i cant work out eh suspension, it may get converted to some thing with leaf sprung suspension.

The BWC chassis' are built perfect for leafs. with custom dimensions a 4 link is possible. i may have to go back and shorten my links.

lol...all this is useless without pics huh?

be patient. i'll get 'em

Pics? I am interested to see what your chassis looks like. I have seen Clodstall's and want to see how you mounted your suspension.

Im not really happy with my link set up as of now. I think i will go with shorter ones later.

it wont have as much flex once i mount the coil springs and TLT shocks.

yeah, its my mounting points for the upper links. they REALLY need to be futher back in the frame. A panhard bar would probably bandaid the problem, but i think i'll just shorten the upper links.
