Hi Guys/Gals
I 've just had them electroplated, the plating only goes an inch(25mm) or so up inside the tube

If anyone has a dividing head or/and rotary table we might  have a deal to be done in exchange for the control arms.

Wow, they look great David!

I really shouldn't be shocked after fitting/using your rear control arms, these front ones look awesome too  8)

Good bit of kit!
Bons is the in-out adjuster, like a tie rod, you dont have to drop the Heim joint by pulling pin out f crossmember, to adjust.

Hi Jason/600z
Jason do you have any trashed 6 speed gearbox's i can play with?thinking of doing the bell housing thing.
The adjuster is machined from solid 4130 (chrome moly),the female end of the adjuster is L/H thread and the male end is R/H.The insert in the control arm is also 4130 ,the spacers that go either side of the rose joint are mild steel,they are spacers after all.This set will give you between 1.5 to 3.5 degrees camber approx.
Cheers David

Hello David,

No I don't sorry, there not that easy to come by for a good price at times. You could try somewhere like Gabba gearboxes in Brisbane as your in Brissy aren't you? I'm in Tassie.

The control arms of yours have come up very well, I have been thinking of making up front and rear ones but more so the front for mine but one thing at a time I have just made an electric power steering column for mine and waiting for it to be approved.

Justin
