... parallel leading arms are no less aero, and only a tiny bit more complex, and fix the problem...
I agree 100%. I only started this topic because I'm amazed how many rods have been built (millions?) with split wishbones (or hairpins)- both front and rear.

Sorry guys. I was just trying to elaborate on fordboy's comment about using rod ends on suspension links.

Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish. The product of a demented hill billy who has found a way to live out where the winds blow. To sleep late, have fun, drink whiskey, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love or getting arrested.    H.S. Thompson

Mount a camera on the car to monitor suspension travel-it isn't that much.  So, all this flexion stuff doesn't matter because the suspension moves thru such a limited range of travel.  A stiff spring and limited travel covers a lot of engineering sins.
