yea cages suck, especially when they save your life

I should have my new truck in the next few months so I might actually be able to make a run up there next year at some point.

From what I know of geometry, this will cause a bind and possibly the upper link to break. The way your pivots are set-up, each bar making up the upper link will want to travel in a circle around the bolt that holds them in place. If so, they do not follow the same path. Both your upper pivots should rotate around the exact same axis. Theoretically, they should both be joined by an imaginary long bolt that goes through both pivots.

I believe the upper pivots should be like #1 in the picture and not like #2.

Fred because they are not "bushings" they will travel like option #1 too.

WE will see, thanks for the tip though. If I have issues I will look into that.
