A-body boxed front control arms

Does any one have pictures of their upper and lower front control arms that have been boxed? I would like to have a reference as a place to start for boxing mine.

I know they aren't cheap but it might be worth investing in the tubular arms if your intent is improved handling.. supposedly they are night and day vs the old GM iron designed in the 60's

as a side note I have the air ride tubular arms (lowers only) with the shockwave bags on my 66 chevelle and left the uppers stock.. we'll see how it runs eventually

The bank is empty, I want tubular control arms, but for over a grand it's not happening right now.

The uppers are the main problem on A-bodies. The new tubular's use taller spindles that change the geometry, more +camber. I saw some kits on Ebay a good while back that had all the pieces to box the stock arms. Had some Pics also.
