A truck I created circa 2007, with engine, front styling and roof copied from the Dakota Wrecker 8858, and rear drive shaft based on that on the truck from the old Universal set 8090.
About this creation
Rear axle; differential bearing pivots independently of suspension arms. Antiroll bar visible at bottom of picture.
Front steering and suspension mountings.
Above is the front suspension. Axle running to wheels is steering column. Suspension pivots are to the left.
Above is the rear suspension. As with front suspension, all pivots including shock mountings utilise black connectors to provide a degree of damping. Drive shaft to rear wheels is longer than trailing arms of suspension and slides slightly against driven gear in main body of truck, travel of suspension is not so great to create a problem.
View of underside of truck. Steering gear can be seen to be off-set to one side to permit it not to obstruct propellor shaft.
