  • IC: Tubular 4-bolt LCA's

    I've decided to build a set of tubular 4 bolt LCA's for my car. The design is still in process, but I believe I should have something to show by this weekend, but no later then Wed next week.

    Just trying to gauge how much interest there is so if/when I purchase material and parts I could figure out what it would be to buy in bulk.

    I'm targeting $450 for a set, which is just a bit shy of OEM Ford replacements.

            I might be in if you make them better than the stangkillers. Swapping subframes is no issue for me.

              Here is my design. There are a few more details I need to add, but you get the idea. Bar pin setup with stainless steel spherical bearings. There will be no camber adjustment. The design is intended to be a drop in factory replacement with greatly improved performance with regards to the OEM bushings. Only reason I designed these was because of the high failure rate I was experiencing with the factory units.

                Those look nice, already swapped to 2 bolt for stangkillers, not going back. What sort of bushing are you using?

                  No bushing, spherical bearing.

                    Are the bearings going to be sealed or will they need to be greased periodically?

                      Sealed is the plan, but I may opt for a greased version.

                        looking at your design mike, would it be possible to press your bar/bearing assembly in to a stock arm.... are the dimensions the same ? ....G.

                          No, unfortunately not. Ford made provisions for the bushing material they used in the arm so that it would grab when it was installed. You would have to machine the arms to make it work.

                            That looks pretty solid. I noticed huge traction/wheel hop improvements when I went to Stangkillers, so I imagine these will help in that regard as well.

                              Interested for a DD, would prefer the greasable bearings, in order to protect my investment.
