Here is the info I think that I will need:

-sprung weight

-unsprung weight

-total vehicle weight

-corner weights

-link lengths

-wheelbase (?)

-trackwidth (?). . .maybe distance between the pivot points would be better, but I'm not sure that this would even matter. . .

plus the properties of the material being used (ultimate tensile strenght, yield strength, % elongation, % reduction in area, and modulus of elasticity, area or volume of the link. . .OD & wall thickness). . .the link info would only tell you if your selection of link material and size will be adequate for your vehicle

Am I missing anything?

Does anyone know an equation, or series of equations, I can use to calculate the worst case scenario load a suspension link will see?

Thanks for the help!!!
