very cool so far..hmm maybee jugg leafs on each axle..or you could try making your own from a lawnmower or weedwhacker recoil spring..i think you would heat/torch up the ends to make the eyelets

Not yet. was thinking about the bullhead body that Shelby VNT has in the BST. But i well have to wait on that for now. dont really want to use a clod body.. might get two hummer bodys and make them work. but i really want an tow truck.

How about this? Make a center bracket and use leafs turned upside down. The leafs will keep your axles from moving but give each the independent movement you are looking for.
