avoiding bump steer

please help me designing a front suspenssion for my off road buggy, I want to make the steering arms the same length as the bottom A arms and parallel to them, if viewed from the front they will form a parallelogram, am I rigth or should I go a different way.

I also tougth of having very long steering arms, almost reaching the middle of the car

By the way the IFS is a short/long arm design I designed and simulated in CAD, but the steering gives me plenty of doubts.

I don't want to have bump steering problems.



Thanks for helping.

Augusto.

Augusto,

If you could post up a sketch or your CAD drawings it might help folks visualize your design and offer up their assistance. There are some real suspension wizards on the forum (present company excluded) but they need specifics to work with.
