    Tired of having to think up superlatives for your work Zipper, how about you mill a few holes in the stainless arm so it doesn't look so massive, its a sidecar rig not an excavator arm LOL.I hope your going to do a sway bar also they really help keep things planted.Very nice.DB

    I've confused myself, I meant mill a few holes in the big aluminum rocker, so it doesn't look so massive.DB

    On Page 1 you posted up a pic of your new rim and I figgered it was for a car pusher but now I see that's the sidecar rim. Got any plans for a car pusher?

    What's the purpose of the rocker? The end with the heim joint for adjusting ride height? I'm just not seein it yet unless its for that purpose, the way it's hooked up it can't be for a cantilever suspension because of the shock placement.

    Spill beans please, and great work btw
