In automobiles, a double wishbone (or upper and lower A-arm) suspension is an independent suspension design using two (occasionally parallel) wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel. Each wishbone or arm has two mounting points to the chassis and one joint at the knuckle. The shock absorber and coil spring mount to the wishbones to control vertical movement. Double wishbone designs allow the engineer to carefully control the motion of the wheel throughout suspension travel, controlling such parameters as camber angle, caster angle, toe pattern, roll center height, scrub radius, scuff and more.

A-arms come in all sizes. What are you building them for? How heavy? How much power? How much travel of the wheel?

We only decided 2 days ago so its early stages honestly were going for wishbones cause it looks badass the design of the chassis works out at 2100mm long 660 wide not sure what weight that is it will be made out of 30 box section. As for the wngine my friend wants 600cc or more.

Need to convert the mm to (inches) for the old-schoolers (most of us).

What are we building? How much wheel travel do you anticipate?

I dont even know what wheel travel is man. I never went to school to learn i was just in the right place at the right time an the gut who taught me only showed me how make gates, rails and brackets etc so all i have is the internet to learn which is good it will just take time. We are building an off road buggy im drawing up ideas atm

This is the base frame this will all be made on a flat surface with a jig. When im done im going to start adding my uprights and assemble the frame(is that ok way to assemble the frame). I have 2 more questions does the back wishbone axles need to be there or is there a better option i know of a standard axle on axle hangers welded to the frame but i thought you get better performance out of wishbones. What engine is suitable for the 450x450 box at the rear where the axle is? Can i even have it in a box? Thats all for now i appreciate your fedback guys remember this is my first time designing a buggy i still do not have all the knowledge i need thats why i ask you guys.
