Chassis and Suspension / Re: 5 link rear sandcar suspension

I can't believe you actually understood what I was asking!! Believe it or not, I actually understand most of your info, after reading it once. Thanks. I will research the micro stubs more. I will not be aiming for 24" of travel, because I need to save money by using my Fox reservoir shocks. (Forget stroke length at the moment). I also need to know how to buy/build axles to mate to the Subaru mt5 transaxle, if the stock axles won't handle it. It was just a hope to keep things simple. I will get better pics of my project tomorrow. It is refreshing to learn from people with an open mind. All my stuff is hand made, so usually "goofy" . compared to "factory built"! Thanks to anyone with advise, and I hope to share info after I learn more myself. I don't see any links to pics that people are sending. Except for the sand parts and stubs.

glad you understood and they make 930 flanges for that suby trans. so just get there flanges and go to 930 cv's. you want the high angle ones with over the boot flanges. this will simplify the work and i completely get the thought of stock axle assemblies. again i don't know if there 6 ball cv's on each end of the stock axle so i cannot say but i can say if there a tri pod on the inners then they will not work at all. if they are equal cv's on both ends then why not? if travel isn't important then then i would give it a try but look to see what years and models used the same spline count on stub axles so you can buy the longest axles suby offered. up to 28" long that is. if you go that route and suby used a 3 bolt wheel bearing then you'll need to make carriers to match that but as you know it's all doable! keep us posted and post pics.

the pics should just be there. here is a link to a video of mine. the purpose of the video isn't important but you can see pics of the carriers i built using the micro stubs and caliper mounts i posted links to. made them out of hot 50 steel.





here is a link to a build thread but this page has pictures of those carriers. now this is an a arm rear end but basics still apply.

Damn ds! You gave him a lot to digest there. :m Brian,I/we KNOW you will probably have a lot of questions about what ds just posted. PLEASE don't be shy. Ask all the questions you need to understand it. We've ALL been there and we are very happy to help you in this endeavor. Most of us have learned a lot here and some knew absolutely nothing about suspension design yet most of us are pretty well versed now. I just happened to have ignored the multi link topics since I favor a arm rear suspensions.

 ;D ;D he asked  rofl brianN ask all the questions you need as fabr stated. were here to help! no such thing as a stupid question as long as it isn't why aren't utv's better than rails  LMAO

oldies but goodies!. those are from when you were running u-j's. pics truly are worth a thousand words,yet it takes both to complete the project.


yep! i have a ton more but unfortunately there on a lap top that i accidentally knocked off the table and shattered the screen. i need to run it to enemy and have the them recovered. i still pre fer u joints because of the ease and no cv grease!! lol but they will not handle the tq load like a cv at higher angles with out going larger which reduces angle etc etc.  that was a fun v6 rail for sure!

yes those are u joints but the same principals apply to cv's. if you use the brake caliper mounts that you can purchase and i posted a link to then cut the center hole ( pilot hole) 1/2" larger than the center hole in the caliper mount so you can weld the two together inside and out.  i pre fer 1/4" hot 50 allow so once you weld that caliper mount to it then you have a 1/2" thick center. if you choose not to then go with 3/8" thick flat plate. the pics are of a 6 link so you would just mount the upper rod as close to center as possible and also your shock mount need to me as close to center above the axle as possible. mounted behind it and you'll be trying to rotate the carrier to much when you compress your shock.
