Mt first two reactions to your drawing are; The joints at the axle i-beam or tube to the up-right are high stress areas due to the length of the up-right and the design looks to be rather heavy, having a lot of unsprung weight. Additinal bracing would strengthen the joint areas, add even more to unsprung weight.
