Re: 2wd swap

Saw this on Fakebook another way to snake around the top A arm.
Little hokey ish?
But the idea is solid

Re: 2wd swap

That's what I mentioned previously in post #11. The 3rd joint & requisite bearing support anchor start making things busy. Some are absolutely necessary (tight R&P set-ups) but w/these trucks it's a straight shot between the column & box. I wanted mine to look clean & uncluttered.

Sectioning the area on the arm was the better option for my 'wants'.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Re: 2wd swap

Been on the hunt for a set of those. Upper and lowers.
Have a set of the lowers on my c10 I like the steel bushed pivot and slightly narrow at the pivots.

My son's tig skills are getting better

I like the earlier arms myself after trying poly bushings in the later arms & not liking their 'stiction' during rotation @ times. That stiction to me = inconsistency.

That weld work on the wrench is cool. He should keep that so he can reflect on it one day when you're no longer around to tell him how proud you are of him.
