Check this out you should know how it works and no more need for Ride Height Spring.

Update: I have added C-Clip Droop Version.

I think I understand what you're on about. Do you envisage clearance issues with some bodies as you shim under the tower bar? Unless I misunderstand... you need a longer kingpin? Also I take it you will still need to shim under the knuckle to adjust droop?

It is not designed for droop with the appropriate spring. It is designed for Ride Height if you have a Droop it will be permenate and you will either stick with the design or find a shim to add.

You can easily add the small c-clip ring to the base of each pole to add 1 shim for droop. It will depend on the thickness you want and it will go great with a suspension travel spring one that is a ring on the top and a cut spring on the bottom for suspension travel. I think it will all go together rather neatly.

I want this setup for the 1:18 scale as well that might be manufactered because I run those. I just happen to find this design while thinking up the 1:18.

All you need is curved gear for the milky way standards of gravity backwards.
