IFS for T bucket

AS I am starting out building a bucket from scratch, I am thinking of going for IFS rather than the standard I beam front axle. Has anyone got any experience here or know where brackets and mounts are readily available. Looks like I will be sourcing a lot of my parts from the US as what I have found so far on the 'net seems to be most parts and mods are fairly easy to get there.

One of the members here (Walt) has modified a tube axle operate as an independant. It's pretty slick and gives the appearance of a tube axle but allows each front wheel to move independantly while attached to the same axle shaft. I know it's not an IFS in the true sense of the word, but allows much more articulation than a standard hairpin sretup but is still simple in design. And you could make it from standard axle parts.

Wow, looks good. Thanks for that info and pic, something to store in the memory bank. That's more what I was thinking of rather than true IFS. Just coil overs on a solid axle.
