Nice! Are those 1.25" shanks on the joints? Mere curiosity here since you are using longer than stock arms.

Thanks. All your building as of late makes me want to do the same. I would love to make my own arms but having to buy DOM at 20' increments locally makes it pretty much impossible.

So I assume you've received those joints I sent over?

Also are you using 3 same length arms and then welding the frame mounts to fit? Im just curious why you welded the arms already

I only made the lowers so far since I am using the same frame side link mounts as before. Today I'll get the upper link mount welded on, along with the upper axle link mount, and then set the pinion, take the measurement and construct the 3rd link. Hopefully.

And yes, got the joints, thanks for the hookup!

Didn't know that! Do they sell "kits" or can I order specific pieces? I guess I should be asking them that

We're lucky here in Indy! We have a place that sells everything by the foot at very good prices!

Not here So far they give me a per foot price but you have to buy the whole stick that is ~20 feet. They'll cut it to length, in whole feet increments at $2 a cut

I bought 3, 24" sticks and am just cutting a bit to whatever I want the links to be. I think it was $20 or so per stick, I was fine with that. And their shipping is way cheap.

That's pretty close to the pricing I get here not counting the cutting fees and the 20' required purchase.

Cant recall what you decided regarding the discussion on tracbar mounts. Will you be using the stock tracbar mount on the axle and frame?

Yep! & Yep! I think 2"x1/4" wall DOM was about $12 a foot. You can usually get drops a lot cheaper on their sale days.

Yes, I'm not having or able to see any issues with either one at the moment.
