I'm def building my own. My plan is to cut the frame off at the firewall and build a bulkhead to mount everything off of. I'll be keeping 4wd and I'm planning on using the toyota pickup solid axle hubs and snouts. I'll be using a plunging 930 on the inner and non plunging on the outer. Spindle will have a vertical uniball up top and receive and horizontal on the bottom. upper arm will be a j-arm on hiem pivots. lower will pivot on uniballs. as far as specs go I'm shooting for <3/8" wheel scrub from Ride height. Camber will be 2-3* at Ride, 7-8* at Bump, 3-4* at Droop. I'm thinking 7-9* on caster in the spindles. obviously these numbers will change as i go through the design. I'm not sure what i want to do about rake and anti-dive. I'm open to any suggestions and advice you may have though

Been a while. I like everything you have written except the camber at droop. Its been debated a ton whether to run camber at droop, but my take on it is to only try camber at droop if youre into short course racing. All the fastest desert guys have seemed to follow the 0 camber at droop and i think thats because you get a lot of bad things going on when you let the kit start to collapse on itself at droop to try and trick the wheel scrub into being less. More complication with 4wd because youre adding more angle to bind at droop and will have to limit travel.
