Brad has access to my car and I actually fabbed up the original set of the rearmost lca's a couple years back. With both our hectic schedules, it's been tough getting much new fab work done. I attempted boxing a set of front's but got carried away with the welding and melted the original rubber bushings from the heat so I gave up on it for the time being, but that again was a couple years ago.

Someone needs to get me a set of the front/rear control arms so I can box them in with the old TIG

Now about not being able to connect the sway bar to a round tube front control arm....what if you used bigger rod ends that would actually have the eyelet be the same as the control arm O.D. ? A couple of clampable stops and the sway bar mount pivots turns yet stays still.....I might just get creative one of these days and do my rear control arms and maybe try the fronts while I'm at it. I have a pile of rod ends lying around and I can always swipe some from work

A heim joint conversion for the sway bar helps in not trashing the urethane bushings that my Aussie Bar so happily did, a few times. The drawback is that there isnt much room for two heim joints and still keeping the sway bar flat at ride height.

What about using a larger heim joint, installed onto the bar before assembly, so that the smaller heim joint could screw into it from above? You would need some kind of stopper to keep the joints, and the sway bar, from moving from side to side.

It's not totally dead yet. I still need a car to prototype on... perhaps it's time for a new post...

He's got a "spare" car since it sits all winter. Must be nice to have a race car and a daily driver!

Rick, does it move under it's own power yet? Ala alternator problem...

The battery is up, but I haven't changed the alternator yet. I at least got the trailer opened up this weekend though.

I put a good battery in my car. But, I need a front alignment badly...I'm out 2 parada spec 2's On a side note I dug up some rear control arms, found my spare rod ends,and found some hydraulic tubing that should work quite nicely for my run of control arms. I'm still trying to think of a good way to attach the sway bar to them though. I'm waiting on a response from Mumm for any inside info he can give
