I bought these upper suspension arms a few months back. With out weighing them I'd say they are going to save me a few pounds per side. But more importantly I will have all sorts of adjustablity.

So today's project is to get them installed on the Nova, cut the front springs, and install the new shocks.

I thought about making my own upper arms. Then I realized I wasn't going to save enough money building my own to make it worth it. Add to that... I have alot of other fab work that needs to be completed. I need to finish weld the chromoly roll cage, massage the sheet metal around the rear wheel lips, form and put all the tins in the car, and fit the lexan windows.

After that then I need to focus on purchasing and fitting fiberglass or carbon fiber body panels

Some times the bullet has to be bit!
I could not make those for what they sell for unless I want to make $5.00 per hour! Embarassed Won't happen!

sometimes less than $5 an hour when you factor in supplies, gas, rods, tungsten, etc. i only build because i like to. theres little to no money to be saved. i think i owe myself on labor to build my 9" Confused Embarassed Rolling Eyes. really enjoying it though Wink

I know what you mean. I like the fact I fabricated most everything on my car also. The car owes me also! Cool
There is great satisfaction on making the parts, lately the price of chrome molly has me thinking though!!
