    Nivek,
    A couple of suggestions for you before you get to far check the clearance for your head, the ST2 stock frame does not have much/enough clearance unless you're not to tall.

    The front lower A-arms, you may want to add extra support or make them with a truss design, otherwise they bend very easily at the shock mount area, the tops are fine just the lowers have issues. At least mine did.

    If you didn't plan on it try and add front brakes, the plans don't have any, but believe me it is well worth the effort when you need to stop in a hurry.

    Good luck,
    They are fun to drive

    I'm planning on adding front brakes and am making a few changes as I go along there is a support in the plans on the front wishbone but it looks rough so I will do better
    I'm getting rid of the single pin keeping ghe wishbones on front and rear and doubling up on the brackets and bushing s using bolts instead
    More pics will follow soon

    Hey!

    Nice to see another ST2 build!
    I have front disk brakes also, I just used the front stub axles, wheel hubs, calipers and disc brake plates from The Edge.. and build it into the ST2 LT design.

    Keep us updated!

    Have wheels and tyres 26 x 10 x12 rears ans similar 8" fronts
    Mini rail quick rack arrived from sand parts last week
    Gsxr 750 k5 has been mine for a long time in waiting for this build
    Have rear gaz coilovers 12" stroke but no decent fronts as yet
    Looks sweet dude! I'm just wondering, What center housing unit is that? Or did you make it your self, if so what did it cost to build? What size/kind of tubing are you using?

    Good clean look to it

    It's badlands plates with impreza diff and shafts hubs inboard brakes mounted on collars I added to the inner cv joints
    Diff is sealed up with a cap and will be using grease instead of oil
    Sprocket adapter made to suit crownwheel bolts and sprocket
    Most expensive thing in it so far was two bearings at 40 euro I had the diff in a swap with a mate for other stuff and the adapters I made at work before I got my own lathe
    If ya bought everything probaly 300 would cover all
