    Boxed control arms

    Had a pretty good response from people seeing these so I thought I’d bring them over to the “for sale” section I work at a fabrication shop and I am lucky enough to make parts for my own car but I thought I’d share. I have boxed my own control arms, like i’ve seen in a few race cars of the period, for the added structural rigidity over the stock arms. They are cut to shape and dimpled for reduced weight and added strength. I am not provided you a “kit” I am providing you a service If you send me your control arms I will media blast them, stitch weld the seams, add the plates to “box” powder coat or plating upon request $100 per pair You pay shipping to me Powder coat or plating price will vary I will pay return shipping Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I agree with that Some type of threaded ends with nuts to dial in adjustment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Full on mod ? Nothing wrong with the IE kit You’re correct, I wanted to add them for extra rigidity and less unsprung weight. Dimpled plates reduces about 30-40 percent of the weight Plus, instead of selling as a DIY kit I would rather sell a service Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    $100+shipping Additional if you also want to get them powder-coated or plated as well. That can be discussed I’ll pay for return shipping Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Making parts

    Luckily I work at an off-road shop so I have the ability and tools to make a lot of parts myself I have a list of parts I would like to produce for my '02 and others if possible so I wanted to get started First I made myself some boxed control arms that I’ve seen on a few race cars and really appreciate the additional structural strength it brings from their stock form Secondly, I have a couple strut tower plates laser cut to make my own strut tower bars. Probably will just weld in a straight chromoly bar for carbureted cars. If anyone has any opinions on aesthetic or a better structural geometry please chime in May be able to make a couple of either of these for others who are interested Thoughts ? - Dennis Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Brake setup with volvo upgrade

    I am running Volvo girling calipers up front with vented e21 rotors. You will have to get the calipers remanned to fit to the strut housing better (less movement around the bolt holes) IE did mine I am using a stock master cylinder with no issues. I did go with the 250mm e21 drums and 19mm cylinders. A good upgrade I would recommend if you are upgrading your fronts anyway. E21 parts are way cheaper I would just go with new rather than used Just use good pads and fluid Good luck in your swap Dennis Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Uncommon to go to 10” long springs?

    I will strap the travel in the rear just for peace of mind. Last week I had my rear wheel come off the ground entering a driveway.. wouldn’t be the best time to lose a spring! In the front do you just zip tie the spring to the top retainer ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have Ground Control’s coilover kit in front with 8” long springs that fall out when the car is jacked up. Which isn’t a huge concern but it is in the rear which is also a 8” long with GC rear adjusters that also fall out. When there is no strut running through the center to hold it from falling out, It’s a bit unnerving. I am running shortened bilsteins front and rear, and instead of running even shorter shocks I was curious if I could go with 10” springs both front and rear just to take up the extra slack. Is this uncommon to go with this length of spring? If I do go with longer springs would my spring rate change along with it ? Dennis Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
