Does anyone know how to make a live front axle (steered, driven, beam axle, preferably with a panhard rod) in a relatively small space, I can't figure it out.

This is my rear axle for guidance:


Most things are OK to change except for: suspension mounting points (one stud inwards IS possible), track width, and wheel size.

I appreciate any help, doesn't need to be a finished product, just an idea would go a long way too.

I could suggest looking at suspension in RM8's Land Cruiser (FJ40) model. Although all description is in Russian that webpage contains sufficient number of pictures, which are self-explanatory. This model has even got free instructions.

From what I see, both yours and RM8 model's suspension are 11L wide so it could be adapted or pose as an inspiration to figure out your own, unique setup.
