Here are some pics of the custom front suspension that I started last year
i have to just finish making the upper a-arms and make the spindle posts
and a few other small things

i did not use any plans for this i just looked at a pic of stretch plastic's design
this will be going on the 1989 marathon, since all the measurements i used were from that cart

as an added bonus i have made this suspension so that it is bolt-on and if i ever want to put original back on i can

so anyways heres some pics







here is were it bolts to were the leaf springs normally would

The strech lift uses a second mounting point out front at the upper shock mount holes. Will you do something similar?
