Maybe. What time? I don't think anyone would ride with me though since campus is empty with it being a 3 day weekend so I don't know if I want to drive that far alone and scared... But I also have nothing better to do this weekend. At all.

Make sure your rig is sporting enough hi-viz orange to not get mistaken for a deer and shot at Very Happy

It's going slowly! Yesterday I took a wheel off so I could get a ton of pictures and measurements. Honestly, if you plan on any mild suspension work it almost seems worth it to replace the IFS since OEM is so complicated. Like if you look at your stock upper control arm, it bolts to the frame, then has this weird curve around to the ball joint, then flattens, then the area the ball joint bolts too is angled down, then angled again and a different curve around to the back of the UCA. You can tell the OEM stuff is insanely engineered, but it seems like it's overly complicated when you could just have a bent tube with a heim stuck in it more or less.

So that's what's going to take/is taking the longest, is modeling the OEM gear so I know how strong OEM is so I can make my design at least that strong. But since it's so hard to model all the compound curves and angles, I might just get it close and then add a 20% factor of safety and then make the new design 50% stronger than that or something. Anyways, it's going and I'm hopeful it'll actually be reality in the next few months!
