Default Suspension Fab q's

I'm working on a budget tubular a arm setup for my marathon and I have a couple of questions first off what size heim joints have people used and what size tube? I'm thinking 1/2-1/2 but not sure on the tube size. Second I'm planning on running stock rhino shocks. Finally I'd really like to convert it over to rack and pinion does anyone have a good source for little racks or maybe from another cart that would be easily adapted? Thanks in advance for any advice or help.

OH YEA!!!!

Yamaha has rear steer racks (take a look at the rack I installed in my thread) and I believe on later years some have front steer (don't hold my feet to the fire over the later models). Club Car has front steer racks on later models. The rest I don't know about theirs. I also have a line on some small racks that are even shorter and used in a very abusive enviorment and appear to hold up. Look into mini-sprints, for the rack.

I would use at least a 3/4 inch heym. When I was building race cars 3/4 and 1 inch were a must for the abuse. 3/4 inch heyms equals out to 3/4 inch tubing. 1 inch will be stronger but just a little heavier, might be worth the trade off though if you plan on rough riding. And be easier to fab shock mounting bracket to the tubing.

Next and the most important for all of us here is ...Where's the pics? Lets see what you are starting with and maybe some has already worked with that before and can give you some heads up.

And welcome aboard to the nuthouse.

thanks for the info I'll check out your thread some more. And I do need to take some more pre pics, the one in my avatar is the only one I have right now so I'll get on taking some more. What I'm dealing with now is a custom front end axle lift that someone decided they wanted to make look like a prerunner so the camber is way off and looks/ handles bad so I figured I've got the resources to get the project done why not use them. I'll keep you guys posted on the progress.
