    Haven't finished the trailing arms because I think I'm going to use cv axles and I'm not quite sure how they will fit up.

    Went with the spindles in the drawings. We will see how they work.

    So I assume if I am going to use cv axles, I need splined hubs? I ask because I already have the keyed hubs sold by ubuildit.
    Thanks

    Great progress on the build. If you plan to use rear CV's have a look at what Lug-nuts did, he used CV's from a mid 90's S10 Pickup, the CV's from the front on the 4x4 versions. Also one other fellow doing the exact same thing on a shredder build. My build started out as a shredder, but I decided on a custom design. I used rear trailing arms just like the shredder but I used all 930 style CV's. It is more money to go that route but more versatility with various axle lengths available. With any CV you will need the matching bearing carrier hub, the S10 style works well as Lugs has shown in his build. If you bought the rear hubs from Ubuildit then that won't work for CV's.
    Front spindles look good. I ended up using Yamaha YFZ450 (banshee style) spindles, they have brakes and all, easier than fabricating spindles and having to figure out custom front brakes.

    Looks like you are progressing well. I am excited to see the progress on this, especially what you decide to do with the rear drive train. since reading the other posts on this site, i have been seriously considering using a system similar to Lug-Nuts set up. I even found one cv shaft and the carrier bearing at the NPS store the other day. I didn't buy them because I am still wavering between using what i have and changing to the CV system.

    Im using the spindles from the drawing and they work great. My suggestion is after you get it all put together silicone the open ends of them closed so they dont get filled up with dirt and water. I found that out already.

    Any S10 from mid 80's and up will work. I think mine are for a 85.

    Inailit glad you found NPS did u find the metal racks on the north side of the building? Im pretty sure I know the cv you are talking about I have eyeballed before as well.
