    Does anybody know where to buy these rear u-joint axles?
    Are they custom made or can you buy them?
    I would like to use this set-up on mine.
    I found this picture on this site. Thanks for your help.

    That looks like the original swing axle setup that short sand cars used ShortSandCars

    Most builders (Including Short) have moved up to IRS (Independent Real Suspension) that use two CV joints (or in some cases U-Joints)

    The Swing axle style will work if you limit the wheel travel so that the axle does not fold under. I believe you can find more discussion by searching the forum.

    Yes, someday I'll get my website up www.minibuggysupply.com (Anybody know a good Web site designer/graphic artist?)
