Default SkaldidDog's "Buck-Nasty" Trailing Arms

Here you go Rob. I'll post all of the pics tomorrow. Time to drive and tune. Dramatic improvement. Sorry but posting from a phone is a pain.

Here you go. This will give some folks a better idea of all of the annoyingly slow steps parts take to make.

Square off block.



Clone stock.



Purty.



Drill.



Tap.




Mill.



X2



Rough cut, drill and mock uppers.



Tune uppers further.



Viola! (yes I skipped some steps).





Need to polish mill the uppers to remove extrusion scar.



Full mush belly at ~1.5".



Full droop belly at ~3"+.



Maybe a little too twisty.



Pre bash.



Post glory-dirt.



Hope this doesn't crash when I submit.

Nice work there Joel. Sounds like it's time for a rear sway bar

Cool stuff going on in here. My wraith got way better when I outboarded the rear shocks. You gain spring rate in articulation but not in compression. I bet if you outboard the arms on yours it will tame some of that excess articulation and make it corner a lot better.

I'm still deliberating but it may happen.

Thanks Calderwood. By outboard do you mean move the axle mount points outward towards the wheels (spread the links on the axle?

Cheers,

That's how I interpreted it and that's what I'd try.

Hmmmm. Sway bars seem way more complicated and difficult. That's more my style. Decisions, decisions.

Only if you guys promise to be nice to me and not make fun of my rig, my driving or the clothes my mom picks out for me that day. Oh, and tell that Jake guy to slow down, he's gonna cause me to scratch my truck.

If I can't get the feel I like from a sway bar I'll give it a try.
