There is a good reason single a-arm designs are not "long-travel". Negative camber (/ \) will be significantly exaggerated the longer the stroke...this can be kinda offset by starting with positive camber (\ /), but both conditions can have negative impacts on both handling and tread wear...just something to consider...

Also you could do the front shocks from midwest minis and make the brackets that Dirtdevil did. That is the route I went and I am currently fabricating the brackets. It is an easy and inexpensive way to soften up the ride and pick up some wheel travel.

Yup...that's a good route on a budget...that set-up is now on my neighbor's machine...his 12yo beats the **** out of that thing and it's held up well to the abuse!
