Re: Custom springer front, advice needed
For the pivots bolts I've welded 2 grade 8 washers one on either side of each axle mt at the tip of the fork. And since my suspension is secured by bushings that'll be able to pivot, I'll have an additional pivot linkage at the top o' the fork using rod end bearings. That'll keep the fork legs parallel.
It's all about weight and leverage so it doesn't matter how many springs just the rating.
