Thats neat. I like the adjustable top wishbone, could not help but notice that you have screwed the top wishbone back to max out on caster. Is that where you wanted it or have you run out of ajustment and could do with more. Did it make a difference?

If the dummy strut has an offset hole for the ball joint taper you have it pointing to the wishbone, should be pointing to the wheel/hub

Hi.
Did you use an donor antiroll bar? Or did you make one on your own?
And if, what material did you use?

The mushroom adapter is set as per the book, with the offset towards the front. The top wishbone is set up with 5 degrees of castor. The front rod end ( seen in this picture) is set like the back one.

The arb is made from 12 mm spring steel, my local spring maker made it to a pattern I supplied. Didn't cost much.
