Solid Axle Suspension Rig

Hey guys

Just picked up blender again for the first time in a long time and am learning rigging and armatures for practically the first time.

My goal is to try and make an accurate solid axle suspension rig but and after trying many different methods I just cant seem to get it to work fluently. Any googling has only resulted in guides to making IFS rigs, but with solid axle suspension one wheels loc & rot affects the other as well.

I have made a video with just control arms and an axle to describe what I’m trying to achieve, I’d like to know the best way to approach this. In the video, I can only attach one control arm, if I attach the other side it messes it all up.

Hey, See this thread - Rigging four link suspension for an off road vehicle
