sounds cool, any pics?
is it to locate the upper ball joint? i don't like the look of it myself.I have a round bar and I need it to be square (sing that to Stones red door) , so called in on machine shop this morning. Come back in a month and we might be able to do it, bugger. Searched through my box of offcuts and found a chunk of round big enough, took me ages to cut it in half with hacksaw. Managed to get a 16mm drill from agri merchant over the road , drilled out centre to take joint and then cut flats on side . Welded some flat bar on to give correct size and then drilled through for pinch bolt, slice with grinder and tidy up with file . Had to cut top bolt hole of hub to get ball joint in correct position then welded block on, bracket from old fiesta damper chopped about and then welded on . Bolt is belts and braces . Do you all think its strong enough?
sounds like a better idea.No neither do I but at least it has enabled me to make rest of suspension, back to original design that should be fine . That is a block machined to slide over what was the strut mounting and will be bolted in place with 2 fixings , will be stronger than original strut bracket.
