Default Custom long travel front end!

Wanted to post this up. Built a custom long travel kit for my cart. Ended up with 11" of independent travel.

Front ended up 2" wider on each side, 4" total, and have some 2" spacers coming in the mail to match front to rear tire width.

Used honda trx400ex shocks from an atv for the suspension. They work, but had to mount them further out to not have too much sag. Ideally, i'd get something a bit stiffer to be able to utilize the full 11" of travel the a-arms can do. Right now its limited by the shocks travel to about 7".

Its butter smooth. Still some rear end bumps, but a 4 link is in its future.

Overall, significantly impressed with this setup.

Any bump steer? How did you mount the A-arms to the frame and what hubs are you using?

No noticable bump steer. A-Arms are welded to tabs which are welded to 2 pieces of 3/8 plate which sandwhich the frame from the top and bottom with 4 bolts. Bolts are drilled through frame also, so they're not going anywhere.
