That's some pretty small tubing for the amount of stress it's going to see. What are you using in the center for articulation?

But a G-body is already a 4 link style suspension, I was wondering why.... :)
Alot of work that might not be needed. ;)

dayum SERIOUSHYDROS u know when shits been sittin to long u get that kind of rust on the metal. nothing a wire wheel wont cure. but thats some nice work, me likey.

we have bushings to go inside the pipe for it to pivot on. the heim joints is ideal except we were working on a budget, u know using what he had around for no money lol. just goin with the old addage TRIAL AND ERROR lol

BlackMagicHydraulics- basically a while back ( year ago) mino ripped the ear out of the pumpkin so he ended up welding a flat plate to the top of the rear end and created new mounts for the uppers. and i come over today and he had connected some bars from teh sides of the pumpkin to the lowers and the rear end was shifted over probably less then an inch, but had no standing 3 wheel no more, and he had already plasma cutted out the upper trailing arm mounts from the frame. so we were just tryin to come up with a way to get the rear end back in teh center, get the standing 3 wheel back and some good lock up. and that is what we had come up with lol. so we r just playing with things since we have to figure out some excellent way to get everything back

Nice Fabrication. I had to do the same w/ by G-Body except I kept the the srock trailing arms and used pipe for the new mounts for the ears. Sad thing is it doesnt stand three no more, but I get the 14 inches of lock up.

Peace
