wow 4 links
4 links everywhere. Very Happy 
this looks really clean and yah like LMM said, the panhard is gonna be interesting. my 4 link doesnt give me travel, it gives me stability. this looks like a crazy amount of travel. im just wondering if it would be easier to connect your linkages and panhard if you moved the axle back so that it was right in front of the frame

this is looking good so far

I dont see any rod ends, are you using any? A bolt drilled thru metal wont cut it.

Alright guys, update time.

Got a full time job so the mower is on the backburner, but I've shortened the 4 links to about half. Now I am making a new front axle out of 2x2 square doubled to 2x4 with c channel on each end, any tips on this? My other idea is scrap the front all together and buy an atv chassis for $50 but it's a long drive to get it.

Then I would use that front suspension on the mower and rig up steering and use the brakes (its a China mini atv) which would be good for this purpose, maybe in the future do a swingarm with chain off of my peerless 700 I have laying around.
