Default Solidworks Files For 5/6 Link Suspension?

Hey all,

I was wondering if there were any Solidworks Part/Assembly files available for a diy 5-link suspension like the Greenwood setup or the six-link one that has an additional strut above the halfshaft. I may have access to some machining and fabrication tools with my new job, so I'm considering going this route for the rear suspension.

I have a Greenwood 5 link and Guldstrand cobbled 6 link set up (work is pretty crude but, I was told it came off a car fabbed in Dicks shop)....if your interested I'm ready to clear some stuff out of my shop.

On our Guldstrand uprights, how would you guys connect in a link on top of his upright? I am thinking of making a bracket off of the existing caliper mounting holes for that, instead of welding something on!

My crossmember is solid welded, so I am using the CVC-Apex (Greenwood later on) brackets there, which avoids fabricating something around the rear diff!

I am reworking my two different set ups to use heavy duty jeep retractable half shafts! I just think a rigid half shaft is taking a step backwards, hampering the benefits of these systems!

Hit up twin turbo on vettemod.com He has a lot of rear 80/81 rear suspension solidworks files if I remember correctly. I had some, but have no idea where they are now, sorry.
