interesting torsion bar idea. since the torsional action is being transferred to the LCA through a lever arm now you may need a stiffer bar to keep the same ride but looks like it should work fine. Lot of work though. Lets see some pics!

How does it ride? What kind of metal did you use?

Very interested in some more pics of the suspension, you and your buddies did an awesome job.

Whats your total cost to date for the lift? new shocks?

good concept and design for ifs.

BUT a normal solid axle is cast.. not aluminum. aluminum doesn't like rocks. that and idk if i've ever seen a beefy cover for our front d35s.. its a weird shape, again my cover is 3/8" thick, made to bash.

I like the design, its pretty cool, lots of work put into it. good job man.

Just a quick question. What did you do about the front drive shaft angle? Or are your driveshafts differnt?

Did you angle the rear of the front diff up instead?
