The ones at the bottom were added recently as they weren't around when the sticky was first posted.
I did ask Sheo to put them in the same format as the rest however.....


Sheo?

I find this link not working, there is too much "http://" in it Can someone please fix it?

It should be

If you're ever up in the air about suspension for large scale, please consider using the rear suspension from a mountain bike.

Yeah that works, and has been done by a few people.
Depending on the size of the car you might have to replace the spring with a softer one though.
