Bolt-on Front 4-link, any interest?

I'm getting all my jigs set up for my sliders and looking forward as to what my next project will be.

I've been sitting on a bolt-on front 4-link design for a while now, and built a variation a while back on my old Disco.

I was curious to see what the interest level would be with this before I put the time and money toward the jigs, and laser cutting for prototype bits.

Goal pricing would be in the $1000-$1300 range, adjustable, and use standard kit parts, not 1-off unubtanium bushings.

And as always I'd also leave to door open for additional bling for those interested, 7075 solid links, hydro-assist mounting provisions, etc...

Of course it sounds very interesting, I was checking your link out this afternoon.
It would be nice if you could share some details, like the general layout, so we can get a better idea...

As much as I would like to, on two different occasions where I've put details of my design ideas out there in a public forum they've ended up as other companies products. So like my sliders, until I have the prototype completed, I will not divulge or publish any design details.

Assuming people need to see what they're buying, I'd suggest you to have the prototype done soon...

Yes. Interested. What about the rear?

The sliders sound interesting too.

I will have some trailing links coming out. I have a design for the rear suspension, but honestly it's on the back burner, as the rover rear 3-link is really quite effective for what it is. The front is what really needs to be addressed as it is rather limited in its performance.

I'm rather proud of my sliders, WoldD90 will be getting a set delivered this weekend.

The rear link setup on a rover is the best that has ever come out of an OEM manufacturer in all of history.

A few tweaks is all it needs.

Chris I'll keep this in mind when the time comes.

Actually looking for additional shop space to have more room for these types of projects.
