Grease points are on the bottom of the axle at each end next to the inboard side of the chassis rails.
You can jack one side at a time but the handbrake must be OFF so chock the front opposite wheel to the side you're are greasing.

It doesn't want to be in it's normal position. The normal position is sat on it's wheels and suspension.
You jack the chassis up to take all weight off the wheel so it is hanging from the axle
Air in the suspension will only help that.

This one is going into stock for potential customers, a second one is in raw state to make when required.
Getting the winding mechanism for a good price is pains taking.


Manufacture supply & fit is probably going to be £350 so it's not a toy and only for those who appreciate the time and work involved and the space gained in the garage

Good question and I think so. I imagine the wide track is simply a longer axle not a wider chassis

I published it everywhere for the purpose of people making their own.
I only cater for those who have no ability or inclination.
