Time to start thinking about how to attach the spring to the control arm.

I currently have two ideas. The first is to cut the spring hangers off of the ford wishbones and then cut them apart so that the pivot can be rotated to the right orientation and the welded and ground to look like they were forged that way....and then welded to the top of the control arms. The gooseneck would be pointed up.

The ford parts look like this. The shackle part would be turned 90* or so.

The other idea is to fab up something like the t-bucket I saw at Bonneville. Not nearly as "old looking", but should be functional.

Anybody got any better ideas?
