Do you still have those leads for a tub. I'm in need of one after a recent face-to-ass meeting with a car.

NortwestRider thanks for the feedback. Think I'll continue to look a little closer to home.

I doubt that suspension will hit the fender. Basically it's a square in a square with rubber on 4 sides. Uses the rubber as the 'spring and shock'. Shouldn't really need anythng else. I believe the dimensions of the inner square would be big enough that it literally could not go past center in the big square as I recall. Althought I think I would have bolted it on instead of welding. but very novel idea for the suspension. Those things are cheap and should work just fine.

It might have provide an easy solution for adjustment:
Toe in/out via slight twist of the mounting plate.
Lean in/out via stacking shims.
A machined slot in the mounting plate could provide some wheel lead adjustment.
But you sure don't have to worry about it moving!

I thought about bolting it so I could use it for toe in but I will just use the bottom slide mounts for that.I'm probably going overkill on all of this ( I use to own a 4X4 shop so HEAVY DUTY was the oder of the day !! ) .I just picked up 2 of these tonight for my UPPER bike - to - frame mounts.They are 21" eye to eye closed and 34" when opened up all the way.They are rated at 1 ton each,so I think they will do !!.
