hi there! i'm designing / building a mutant vehicle called 'the bleachers' (https://www.facebook.com/bmbleachers). it's basically a roaming stadium fit for 80ish people built on a GMC 5T flatbed truck.. my question is with regards to suspension and stability mechanisms and designs. does any one have experience with this?? i'm planning to use 8,000 lb bulldog squaretube jacks (http://www.bulldogproducts.net/content/ ... 540&part=0) mounted at each corner. when stopped we would drop the jacks to relieve some load on the suspension but mainly to stop the whole truck from swaying. i estimate that each jack will see around 5000 lbs.
so yeah, i'm basically looking for feedback from anyone who has done something like this before.. does this look reasonable based on your experience? is there a better solution that you know of?
