Building the Shackle Joint

These shackle-style joints replace traditional Ball Joints at the end of the A-Arms, allowing articulation of the A-Arms, and pivot of the spindle.

Took half a week away from the office to prepare ahead of hurricane Irma, and have been spending the last several weekends catching back up. Irma never came this way, but better safe than sorry.

I may finally have enough free time tomorrow to build out the spindles. If not, here are a couple pictures from the day after my last post (weeks ago) showing the fit and range of motion between the A-Arms and shackle joints.
