wow, nice work, I really like the lower link design for the rear. Looks like it would take some abuse.

Nice!

What are you using for the upper link joints at the axle end? They look like regular poly bushings? If they are, they probably won't last long if the rig is flexed up frequently. They'll get "squished" out and sloppy pretty quick.

yeah they're regular poly bushings...however i've built numerous suspensons with them and never had a problem. The ones you see on this project were on my old truggy for two years before and it got driven to the trails wheeled and driven back and they are still nice and firm. what kind of experiences have you had with them where they went south?
