not real bright.

I am considering building my own front housing from scratch using the knuckle balls, some heavy tube and 8" pipe and weld cap. I can laser out a flange at work and jig it up really easy, and end up with something better (heavier)than stock. I can build it gnatsass straight and truss it from the start.

I've also considered just drawing it up and building the whole thing from lasered out 10ga sheet.
Not because its easy or practical, but because I think I can.

My brother has a pile of Toyota axles, but I refuse to put one on my rig. This one is gonna stay pure...on my rig if Suzuki didn't build it, I did.

I think you already said it in the title of your thread. Spend your time and energy on making something new and inventive rather than something you can easily get from a junkyard for almost free (toyota axles). Just doesn't make sense to me.

If you've got the skills to build a whole axle housing, you can probably design a pretty unique suspension system, which is something that the Zuk's need improvement more than anything, imo.

Just my two sense cuz ur askin'. I think there's more pride in making something that actually makes sense.
