Front and back suspension that works on the Mack dump truck.
Rain rain go away so I’ll stop hurting but didn’t let the work stop.

HTL, this may not be as cool on a work horse like yours, but here is the suspension for the truck I am working on now.

Nice progress #4, but have the humble Shaker’s been over run by door knocking magnet attracting Philistines in sunny Alabama?...

That is a good wooden toy/scale model suspension innovation you’ve come up with “hotrod!”...
Would love to see some more details on it please!

Ducky you better be putting on your metal shade protectors because using metal on my builds is looking more and more interesting.
And will sure make it a ton easier to fix the suspension if need be.
I may switch it over to HR#1’s front end, been thinking about trying one of those but this came to together before I could plan one out.

HTL, I have some ideas on making the front suspension, haven’t had time to start it yet, trying to get the back finished and get the driveshafts finished first. May have to draw out the front to give you ideas to start with.
