you are going to use an independent rear end? i think all the trikes i have seen use a solid axle.

not having done it, this is just a guess on my part.. but i would think when you turn you are going to lean to the outside of the turn with an independent suspension. doesn't sound like that would be comfortable or safe. i'd research that a lot before i spend a lot of time on it.
just my 2cents.. and probably only worth it
