Yup [img]smile.gif[/img] I told you I want to keep up with you in the turns

The only problem with the lower arms, is that they are only available with solid bushings and have no provision for the sway-bar end links. They are meant for stock-cars, but with my heavy springs, I probably don't even need a sway-bar. I figure I can modify them a little for what Global West wants for their arms.

I hope having solid bushings at all 16 control arm locations doesn't cause too much trouble
