    Simplest system which I have used successfully on my 34 coupe is the Locost one, 'Build a car for less than £250' book shows you all you need to know.

    Have a look at this drawing. If all this doesn't line up correct, you ends up with a rather crappy IFS.
    I know there are lots of IFS' out there that don't, but if you want the handling advantages from it, you have to build it correct. As you se, most of the fastening points refer to each other, and changing one point often lead to the change of other points as well.

    Usually it is better, cheaper and safer to use a kit or at least use an IFS from a donor car.

    If you really want to mess with your head get a copy of "race and rally car source book" by Allan Staniford ISBN 0 845429 984 X lots to read and fail to understand
