More suspension. (For you, Mr. Mahan...) This is one of those 5 or so minute builds. I'm not kidding!
About this creation
The Parts. Just snap 'em together. Oh, those red tubes; Make sure (and this is a must) you use the type with the notch in the middle. That way the band will stay in place.

It's really effective!

It's just so simple, it makes you wonder why you didn't think of it yourselves. Wait, I know! I dont have the red parts! Thats it!

I like this easy suspension design very much. 1: it's simple 2: it contains not alot of bricks 3: it's works. Thanks for this one it really helps me out.

Of course, you could make a very effective off-roader vehicle with this... I would probably try it, but it would take a million years to find the pieces because of my LEGO collection. Lulz! Anyways, great suspension techniques. ~Ryan

This is very helpful. I hope I can find the right pieces to build this because ive been looking for a frame for a new car i want to build.

it confused me a lot... but I finally came up with a working design. I will let you know when I post. : )

Quoting Sean Flynn I added a lil something. a real steering system! geez...
That's one thing I've yet to master.
  February 22, 2010
yea. I couldnt add suspension on that moc because the design didnt fit it. :( but after seeing this post, I went and built a lil battle jeep with suspension to make up for it. AND I added a lil something. a real steering system! geez... I have a lot of pics to take. :P I need to find some "me" time. haha

Quoting I like Waffles Suspension. Yay! Anyway, great moc. I have every piece except for those two weird black pieces. Great moc! ~Waff
You dont exactly have to use the 'weird black pieces'. You can just use a 1x4 plate with two 1x1 horizontal clips attached to it.

Quoting Sean Flynn I just built an armored troop transporty thing... mabye i will remake one with suspension... anyway, great design!
Ever since I got into the suspension thing, I can't stand having a vehicle without some form of it.

Dang! I wish I had thought of this... and its true... you do need some sort of stoppers, but that depends on the vehicle shell, and how much suspension you want it to have. Very good design. and dang. I just built an armored troop transporty thing... mabye i will remake one with suspension... anyway, great design!

Quoting High Commander Falcon Good work. I tried this before, but you need stoppers so it doesnt go to high. Also this is on the Homepage under Everyones Creations!!!
This isn't the first time one of my mocs has been on the front page.

ive been working on a single axle suspension too! but i want to try and use the technic shock absorbers in mine

Now I see how easy it is to build a suspension frame. Good proof of principle.

  February 21, 2010
Cool. Another great idea. This is just sideway suspension? The one before is up and down suspension right?
 I like it 
  February 21, 2010
for sure! i think i may be on to something with a version of my own incorporating shock absorbers, but i wouldnt be surprised if this method of yours winds up in a smaller vehicle of mine :-)

Quoting Matthew Mahan you are becoming an engineer right?
Yep. Well... either that or a professional underwater basketweaver.

oh right. obviously. its so easy i dont know how i couldnt have come up with it. i mean its an obvious solution: use two hitch plates with full tech pins, put a tech 't' connector in the middle of the axle,connect said axle assembly to front and back of the frame, then use a cross piece between the two axles with hook-like elements positioned in an opposing configuration from the affected axles, connecting the whole structure together with four rubber bands placed in a matching opposing configuration to the axles to pull the axles back towards a bump stop in an opposite direction, thereby allowing cross-lateral motion and flexing of the axle assemblies. duh! so obviously im being sarcastic. this is genius! you are becoming an engineer right?
