HERES A PIC OF MY A-ARMS WHEN I WAS STILL WORKING ON EM, THE TOP 3/16" STEEL PLATE IS NOT WELDED YET IN THIS PIC AS YOU SEE, YOU CAN PEEP IT IN THE BACKGROUND...

1.1/2" EXTENSION WITH 1/4" STEELPLATES STRAPPED ON THE SIDES...

THEY ARE IN THE CHROMESHOP AS WE SPEAK WITH A NEW BOLT PATTERN FOR THOSE NAPA BALLJOINTS TO FIT...



IN THIS PIC YOU CAN SEE THE EXTENSION PIECE JUST BEFORE THE BUSHINGHOLE ON THE INSIDE...

i also extended the small edges on top of the arms for a originali look !!

then you sanded it

and the final result of extending the a arm


now i wil sow you how to reinforced it
you take a 6 mm steel plate and cut it like the arm and make a hole for the bushing
