I've been thinking about this for a while. I want to toy with the idea of centering the front differential up front and running center mount A-arms down the road. I have made the following considerations:
- Engine may have to be pushed back or to the side, or even pivoted to allow room for front drive shaft to the centered diff
- A carrier bearing can be used to change the direct of the front drive shaft as well
- Inner A-Arm pivots need to be at the same location and distance apart as the inner CV pivot to avoid axle plunge.
- Obviously fully custom arms would be needed, almost center mount, but inner pivots the same distance apart as the flanges on the center mounted diff
Now, my question is, can the stock tacoma from differential be modified so only the center section is used as a centered front differential? Here's a picture to clarify:
Let's discuss, im looking for good ideas.
