ok- i was going to wait on this, but sometimes i have to bite off more than i can chew. i'll probably have to spit it out a few times, but eventually i'll get it down.....
i'm wanting to move the front wheels forward about 1".
so suzi got her a-arms removed-
i'm gonna move the (lower) ball joints forward.
i'm also gonna have to re-seat the springs, as the lifting i've done allow the springs to bow into the brake calipers when i turn w/the suspension flexed. a little scary, sometimes, when the pedal goes to the floor all of a sudden.....
this would be a modification of some modifications i've been reading about.
removing some metal to widen mounting area.
reform some structure.
some sort of plate to do something like this....
mabe. so far.
kinda committed now.......
fashioned some plates from some angle iron(1/4x4").
i tacked up things.
i reassembled the left side, to see if it was close.
it'll need some adjustment.......
looks like it will do what i was looking for.
i'm pleased, and will continue.
perhaps the left can be made to work. hacked moren' i wanted.
right ready to tack'n try.........
this hasn't been going like i had expected. dreamed i'd be seeing spring seat consideration.
still hoping to make this work..........
try and rebuild a-arm.
got a couple of these.
mock-up wheel. wheel centered in wheel well. much better.[img]http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn56/rascott_2008/00120.jpg[/img]
I still have to play with springs, and other issues, before I start buttoning her up........
