re:lower control arms

I was doing ball joints here in the shop not too long ago and after installing the new ones I found a crack in the lower control arm. I had one of the Boilermakers weld a 2 1/2" piece of pipe(diameter just enough to rest on the edge of the ball joint) to a piece of 3/8" plate cut to a near triangle shape so it would sit level in the space I had to work with and get a straight shot on it and used a hydraulic press to push it back out.

I don't have my camera with me tonight but if you want I'll bring it tomorrow and try to post some pics...

Bill
