I already have the empi heavy duty Offroad spindle kit just need to go pick up the factory style arms. I want the 4x1 ones but not at the price they are wanting lately ! So Im gonna use oem for now with the 10 travel coilovers til I come across some later down the road.

P.s. the company sent me the wrong beam. It wasnt supposed to have adjusters. But they told me to keep it instead.

Where do you find those front suspension parts at? I can only find the FL250 single type.

Which ones are you referring too ?

the front is stock king and link vw that have been beefed up for off road stuff and the rears are custom.

Whatever they are called J-Arm or trailing arm for the front. I guess its pic 2. But thanks for the link! That's exactly what I was looking for.

So like an idiot, I did not know that those are modified VW bug I-beam axles, with torsion bars. So for the front your going with around 40 1/4" wide beam then?

You don't have to. I'm more curious on how wide the front will be with wheels and tires on. My brother told me that I should use one of these, but shorten to like 30" for mine, but I don't know. Would save me a ton of headache on building the front suspension, as well as getting the steering box on there. Plus, the shocks for them are a lot cheaper than the coil overs, since it has torsion bars/leaves.

After my wreck in the daily and owing money to the bank even after the insurance pays. I’ve decided to sell this and go to my roots and build another mini drag bike. I’ve sold most of it and already ordered the minibike stuff. Thanks for replying and looking people. I appreciate it.
