I would like to see a pic of the new front control arm before it is installed, if possible.
Thanks

Here ya go Mike. I was painting them today. They will have a Rubicon flex joint on the end. We just had the threads taped up for painting.




I'll take more of them when they are completely assembled. I knew you where interested in them, so I took those shots for you.

I know they are longer...but not sure how much longer. I'll measure them tomorrow with the joint on the end. They where cut when I got them so not sure how long a stock ford one is. These where out of a full size Bronco/F150

No, I can't afford that stuff, just using some cheap rustoleum.

Mike, I measured from the floor to center of the bolt hole on the joint and its 40". The joint is threaded on 1/2 way in this pic. So the arms might be an 1"+ shorter when Pat mounts them up.
