Are these plans in the DL section? I have looked for them but couldn't find them. Anyone have a rough estimate on how much it would cost to get these pieces cut?

One last thing, isn't this setup considered a 5 link instead of six?

This should be the complete set of patterns, 3 files (6mm A, 6mm B and an 8mm set)

I had everything done for 160 €.
It has to be considered a 5-link.

Please not that you should make your shafts able to change in length. Together with some good quality rod ends these are the most expensive pieces.

Actually it's an 8 link 6 link is a name someone came up with as a stock system w/ 2 additional links ad 2 trailing arms. 5 bar is a name for a Guldstrand/Riley and also a little the Greenwood & C4 suspension corner, 2 trailing links, a camber link a halfshaft and a toe link. The C4 & Greenwood oens use a reaer toe link, the Riley/Guldstrand one uses 2 lower camber rods where the relative adjustment of these 2 set the toe.

1€ is roughly 1.30$ or a little less.

Yves, who did your cutting Han from Antigoon Laser Systems?

No, a local guy where I live who has a laser cutter. I think he can even cut stainless, but I guess that he doesn't have the necessary gauge stainless in stock, so it could be that you would have to supply it. Excellent service from them btw and they did everything asap. I paid not vat on the work so it was a bonus.

If you did it in stainless you could use a thinner gauge.

Where did you get the large pipe section in the center from?

The last design (the one I have istalled in my car) was in 3mm Stainless Steel.
3 layers where the bearing support is bolted, 2 layers where the two front rods (and the shock) are bolted and only one layer where the toe-rod and the leaf spring are connected.
It is pretty light..... and pretty stiff.

Somewhere there are the pics of this release.... but right now I'm not able to recover the data from my old hard drive..... f...k !
