I did with alot of help and planing from Laverne.
I'm very pleased with it, i plan on taking it to a quartermile track next weekend and letting it eat, took her down 3/4 mile flat and took it up to 8000 in 3rd alittle over 140 this morning before loading it to go to track and she was smoother than ever.

I'm glad you got to run it, Where did you take it?


Scotty as I told you when we aligned it, you did a really nice job on building it

We took it to battlefield, they had test and tune from 1-5 yesterday. I was really surprised on the 60, lookin through old runs @ battlefield 1.44 and 6.46@107 is best ticket I found from there.
Should be 1.32 again @ mobile and hub.

Thanks again for your support with ALL my projects wouldn't attempt em without you.

snapped a shot under car for you guys.









the lower arm is AFCO 2001BMR-3K- used a 5/8" aluminum afco strut rods 16" long+rod ends and 1171 ball joints for less than two hundred bucks
wilwood pinto rack and strange coilovers with stud adapter on top and #325 10" springs. upper arms are magnum force tubular ive already been runnig for several years.
the steer arms and spindle are from 80 corodoba with pinto bump steer adjusters from speedway.
Took awhile to figure all this out but i beleive it was worth the time.
We made a jig off a stock K frame to locate the lower arm and front strut pivot location, and the rack location is same as Lavernes Duster these two locations determined how the tubing was bent to intersect these points and the two short pieces in the center had to be bent to clear the rack.
