I have been reading alot of threads really about building chassis' for Rods and they make the suspension look very easy indeed.
I have got a lot of decent books on the theory but there is still something that I cant visualise/understand and its driving me mad.
That is the following-
How does a four bar rear end set up work when the pivots of the arms are not in alignment?
I can see that with all four pivots at exactly 90 degrees to the chassis rails it would work no problem, but how does it work when some are at angles to the chassis rails?
If the left and right side are not on the same axis, then surely the suspension wouldnt move at all or would destroy the bushes in no time at all.
I can see that rose joints would help but only for a certain amount surely.
