In response to above: I'm not sure that bent side plates add to strength as much as thicker metal does.
Could you please tell me where did you get $100 price from? +2X the other one is a high price. I could buy the cheap one and mod it stronger and come out about even To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.
The bends will provide rigidity to the side plates. Which do you think would be less prone to twisting? The flat plate or the plate with two bends?
Yes, you can mod the cheaper one to make the side plates more rigid. Simply add a couple of taps and bolt on a piece of bar stock. But for the four linkage bars, they are pretty much flat plates on the cheaper version, so there will be a rigidity issue there as well. The biggest concern, as previously mentioned, is the lack of bearings on the linkage bars. Replacing these four bars, adding 16 flanged ball bearings (yes, sixteen) and adding bar stock to the side plates will not be cheap. Also, machining time needs to be factored in if you are truly going to install the bearings according to their recommended bore tolerances.
Either way, John Does not, I believe the suspension is an extremely significant and positive addition to the m365. If you go the route of the cheaper one (and mod it) and run into any issues or problems, post it to this thread to see if I (or anyone else) can help. Good luck!
