I've seen those. The way I'm doing it is just easier and gives a bit more ground clearance. Headtube angle has to be vertical, or where ever the articulating point is. If not; the vehicle will be unstable, such as articulated loaders, Bindi forklifts, certain types of road/agrigate graders, Articulated dumptrucks, truck&trailer(sorta)
