This link should help with the pic posting:

In terms of the shocks...if they're vertical the only movement they make is just their sprung travel. In the stock form of the RS10 the shocks are at more of an angle, so the movement of the shocks is a combination of shock sprung travel and the shocks pivoting. If that makes sense. So yeah, they will appear stiffer having them vertical and your articulation will be less.

they dont really get any stiffer, the geometry/leverage is changed-less leverage=harder to compress

It's tube. Pretty sturdy, but one of the welds broke. Maybe from the hollow part. Need to reweld.

Mocked up Some suspension mounts for the front. .. you can also see where my solder snapped at the corners... Put some aluminum rods inside to hold in place for the mock-up
