Wishbone Crossmember On A 1972 Toyota Hilux - Project Low Lux, Part 3
Part III: The Wishbone Crossmember
We wanted to dive right in and show you some of the little detail tricks going into this build.
For the rear suspension, we set up the wishbone to mount flush inside the rear crossmember. This isn't done just for looks, as it also serves to give the wishbone the exact angle we needed for our rear suspension geometry. This is why everything on a big project should always be planned ahead of time, that way there will be no "unfixable" surprises down the road. So Bobby Martins from Sadistic Iron Werks broke down this clean little trick for all to see.
