Default RE: landing gear

Boy, is that a can of worms to open up.

Which direction of movement on a hard landing do you want the spring action to occur?

Are the struts leaning foward , straight, or backward? Are they angled outward also?

Is a 1 piece landing gear from wheel to wheel what you want ?
These are some of the primary decisions to make before bending anything.

Then the trial and error bending begins.
