Has anyone did this before? I am currently building a Justy for circuit purposes.
I want something better than polyurthane bushings and this is/should be the solution.
I would like to see how others done it, especially the rear wishbones.

Like this, only then imagine a Swift wishbone:

Sk4wd had full rose jointed suspension on his mk2 rally car I have a photo somewhere, will find it, the problem is the factory sway bar, where it mounts means any custom made lower arms have to be strong in the middle.

I have seriously looked at it but it's an either ALL or NOTHING project, if you are doing it then you need to look at moving the mounting points up to change the roll centre, correct the camber change and fix the bump steer
