  • Tubular front lca interest check

    2 days ago #1
    I am designing a tubular control arm for the front for my car. And I figure out ask you guys maybe I can make a few sets if there is enough interest.

    I've been debating between 2 designs.
    Option 1: Stangkiller design with the factory ball joint attached to knuckle. And 2 rod ends on the inside.
    Or
    option 2: rod end on the outside also. This would require a rod end to knuckle taper adapter to be machined.

    Anyone? I'm thinking about 5 sets

      I’d potentially be interested, if the wife approves. Lol.

        there gonna be between 2 and 400 bucks, the cheaper ones will def be the ones with bolt in ball joints. probably around 2-250 for those. guestimate. i just bought 6 tubes to make them and that alone was 100 bucks so, its gets pricey fast

                So the way I have to go about this is make a few parts from a machinist. Going to cost $350 a pair most likley. I ordered enough for 5 sets. Taking $100 deposits now. If somehow it doesnt workout refunds will be sent out

                  I guess nobody's interested. I'll be making 1 set for myself then. Deadline is tomorrow night. I know I dont have one made but it will look very similar to stangkiller Lca's

                    Dang a few months shy of making the dead line :-(. Would have been interested for sure too. Perhaps you can appease some of the FB band people. I dont know if you had posted their or not but my tapatalk doesn't seem to notify me when things are posted from the .ORG

                      Count me in as another interested party. I realize it's after your deadline but if you reopen let me know and I'll send a deposit
