:confused:Ok say ur doing a coil over setup in da back were do the powerballs go and if welded on wrong spot what are sum ways of taking it off without having to buy a total new pair of powerballs:confused:
you weld it on where your old spring sat on the axle. weld the powerball to a piece of c-channel and tack-weld that to the axle until u get the PB's in the correct location then fully weld, do it rite the first time homie

/\ Thats a good idea. Its hard to figure out exactly what the correct placement will be sometimes. But typically parallel with the pinion on stock suspensions.

The axle housing, on most cars, has a lower spring saddle thats not very strong. Its a good idea to cut that off, use a piece of channel or fish-mouthed tubing (3" c- channel with 3/16" flats is most common), weld your powerball onto that, then weld to the axle housing.

This aint a lincoln, but its basically what the mounting will look like on any axle mounted setup.

This is c-channel. 3" lengths of 3" C-channel work good for powerball mounts. 3/16" flats are common with 3" channel,you just weld the powerball to the channel, then weld the channel to the bare round tube of the axle housing. (running sideways so as 3 points of the channel are touching the axle housing)
