10-02-2010 09:07 AM Upper Control Arm Mockup
I got the ball joint sleeve welded on and the two pivot sleeves tacked to the upper arm.

That allowed me to mock it up to the frame and check out the lower arm clearance on the new rear tube which I tacked in place earlier.

I have about 1/16"-1/8" clearance which I can get to about 3/16" without issue.

I tacked up the passenger side upper arm and screwed in a balljoint to check things out.

You can see where I chopped out the "interference fit" from the lower arm.

Looks like the upper arm will work.

09-24-2010 05:53 PM DOH!
I got things working real good now. Turns left no problem and goes straight but no right turn.

Forgot to check the clearance at the back of the arm to the rim on a turn. I thought I had all kinds of space but apparently not.

Got to cut the back tube off and run it straight to the ball joint sleeve.

Doh!

I got the first lower control arm tacked together.
1-1/2" diameter 1/8" wall stainless tube.

The last pic is the mockup jig I made to check things out.

09-18-2010 11:58 AM Crossmember Parts
I got the crossmember drilled and the threaded sleeves for the rack and lower control arms made up.

The larger sleeves will be welded over the threaded sleeves and to the crossmember for rigidity.
