sleeve currie arms to make them long arms?
Ok so an idea popped into my head the other day while looking at my jeep and dreaming about a long arm setup.
I'm thinking I could cut my currie arms and sleeve them with a longer section of DOM tubing and weld the joint to one end and the threaded section to the other end, so I can thread the adjustable end back in, and I'd have long arms.
This would save me a ton of money, and I think it could be done and look really nice you can get DOM tubing with a .25 wall and a 1.25 ID so the original currie arms would fit nice and tight.
Also I'm thinking I would need to weld a nut to the end of the adjustable side so the jam nut has something nice and flat to tighten against
I just can't see why this might be a bad idea, but it seems like kind of a stretch, so I'm asking for some input.
