    My setup has the transmission a little forward of the axle line. I thought this shoukd be easy...set my hubs up to where the axles are just shy of fully compressed at dead center, but the arm just binds up. Iíve chopped my trailing arm up half a dozen different ways trying to make this work and the only way the axle doesnít bund is if itís almost perfectly straight and not compressed.

    are there any guides or tutorials out there that talk about the process? Iím certain thereís some fundamental thing iím just missing.

    nevermind...swapped the old axle I was mocking up with out for the new one I bought for the other side and it doesn't bind up unless I get way out there in travel (understandable). Just a bad axle...what's another $100...
