Seems to be a nice enough small set, but I can't tell how the front suspension works. Does the front wheel and steering assembly just rotate freely off the chassis?

Please link your pictures, it causes the page to lag.

Anyway, are the red parts normal red, or the darker red found in most present-day red BIONICLE sets?

I also have this set. I compared the red to the old excavator 8851 and there is very little difference. Hard to tell if the old one is just faded. But the new set seems to match the recent Ferrari sets.

The front doesn't have sprung suspension, it is pendular like some of the tractors. The rear is a single trailing arm with one shock. It is a simple but good looking truck.
