    Does any one have any links or photos of ideas for rear uprights. I don't like the way I was going to do mine and want to change them. I have been searching for hours and I have tried the search option but I have never realy had much luck with it.
    I will be machining out a tube on each end to accept a sealed bearing. There will be a crush sleeve in the middle. The 1.375" hub shaft will go through the bearings and crush sleeve and be torqued.
    Basicaly I will have a simple tube that the shaft runs through that I have to connect to my a arms. I need some ideas on what to configure for the mounting points.

    If you ask RickS nicely he may even sell you the cut files.

    I'm surprised something didnt come up witht he search,I think we just talked about this.

    Anyway ,take a look at the rage buggy uprights,about as simple and strong as you can get.If you dont think theyre strong go watch some of thier videos,they beat the crap out of them.

    Three plates and the piece of tube your talking about and your done.And you can get the pivots close to the center of the CV because theyre offset towards the CV.

    Just my opinion of course.

    I am interested in the rage uprights. I did an internet search to get a better picture of them but came up empty handed. I will keep looking

    Yeah,I couldnt find any either,just on thier web site.They look pretty simple though.

    I'm going to use the VW bearing when I biuld them.Something like this.(thanks Kludge,where ever you are.)

    I thought this sounded familiar.
