Depends how freaky you wanna go, or if you just wanna build an "atv" in a mower dress.

Also depends on what motor you will use, vertical or old snowmobile engines and so on.

Hey now that hurts - jk


Its like Thunderdivine said its how you want to go and what you have to work with including tools.
To really give some input on how to make the parts go together well be needing some pics of what you got.

i was thinking the only leaf spring setup i could see working would be weird, you would have to allow the leaf spring to be able to move side to side and it would be independent suspension for my idea, pretty much an A-arm suspension but replace the coils with leafs:P
