No problemo! Heim joints would work great, then you could do U-brackets like this:

Rides really smooth !! It has about 5-6 inches of flex , not too bad but pretty stiff. Some softer coil overs should fix that problem . I just need to clean out the carb so it runs better and mod the hood to fit then move my joints . THEN I CAN GO OFF ROADIMG WHEN IT WARMS UP cheers cheers Twisted Evil

For some reason it wouldn't let me post pics yesterday but i did do some driving and tested out the flex, its not that bad and rides super smooth . Definitely a suspension addict now . Also modded the hood so it fits and it looks pretty good i think .2003 heavily modified Murray Off-road tractor  - Page 5 Img_2065

Ah I see. You should put a trolley jack under one side of your axle and lift it under the flex maxes out. Then measure from the bottom of the tire to the ground. I'd really like to know how much exactly she flexes, haha.

Nice job man. I'd like to see a picture looking right at the front grille. I think the cutouts for your shock mounts look really cool.

Well had some trouble putting them on . They are a bit longer than my other ones. I might put the old ones back on to save all the modifying I will have to do to make these new ones work, and the others werent too bad just slightly stuffed than I wanted

Yeah , my links wouldn't allow any up and down movement, but if I move my joints like ak has been telling me to it could work

Could also raise the shock towers a bit. That would allow the new coilovers to fit and bring the front end down a bit so it will sit level when you put better tires on the front

That would be the second time I have done that tho

It would be the best option in the long run because it's less grinding out of welds

Well the murray got some beef ! Put new link supports in on the axle that are made out of quarter inch angle and added some gussets too. I am sticking with the original coil overs cause now that its all back together it flexes better and i dont really want to move my top mounts again, but i might later if i feel bored with nothing else to do. Got my knock off go pro camera so should be able to get some footage of it running after i get a new mini sd card.And i am building a better front bumper and hopfully putting a rear one on too. On another note i am getting a stick welder and another angle grinder for trading an old k301 engine thats been laying in my shed for a year or so.
