    "Vigilante 6.0 Vengeance" project

    Hi Jackal Glad to hear you are taking advice. Does your mate know anything about the design of suspension geometry? If the upper inner A arm mounts (on the chassis) are at the same height or higher than the upper outer mounts (on the upright) which is what it looks like in this picture the...

    New and old guy from South Africa
