When the fam got home this evening we all hopped on and went for an overdue ride.

The cart handled perfectly; no sag when turning, nice and smooth over bumps and now that I was able to ditch my brake cable holders from the leaf springs, I think it's a little faster too. Very pleased:thumbup:

Nice work! Can we see a picture of the cart, with somewhat of articulation in the rear?

Awesome! Love seeing how other people do it, you gave me an alternate idea that I hadnít thought about when doing mine. Nice work and thank you very much for taking the time to document and share your build.

Iím still concerned about those shocks if you ever get into a high articulation situation that canít be helped (could happen even though I know thatís not why you built it) but no doubt an awesome build!

This was an interesting project to see unfold... You had me thinking about doing something like this for the fun and experience of it for the first few posts... then reality hit.

Awesome build!!!

I'm on a good slope behind my shop here so I figure I have around 10" of articulation in the back. Way more than the front A-arms.

Needed to spread some bags of topsoil this afternoon with my little helper and the springs held up good with close to 400 lbs on the rear fold down. Not much noticable sag even with the springs on the softest setting.:thumbup:

Hmmm, your barely getting any articulation at all in the rear. Your fronts are doing all the work in these two photos. I wonder if itís because your shock mounts are binding [emoji51]

No binding. Again, not looking for articulation.
