Long Arm Front End

DXR Motorsports built a custom long-arm front end using H&M 3/4- to 1/4-inch rod ends and a radius-arm design to hold the Unitrax-built Dana 30 axle (which has been heavily trussed to withstand the blows). A 2 1/2-inch King coilover and a bypass shock reside at each corner, netting 16 inches of up and down at the wheels. Notice that they're not using front hydraulic bumpstops? When there's not enough room to place a bumpstop, the bypass shocks can be set up to take that last little bit of pounding.
