Built lower control arms (adjustable and rebuildable) as my stock ones don't like me anymore. These will be reused when I make long arms next year as I need to get through the winter.

I couldn't install today b/c 1 of the 4 bolts in the stock arm was talking back to Bill 😛 (did not want to resign itself).

HEY, those look GOOD!! I think you'll get tired of looking at them before they break.

Thank you much. I got some great advice from Rick on welding these up as you gotta be careful not to overheat the inserts. Resulted in doing 1 root pass and 2 cover passes. I flapped after pass 2 so that pass 3 would be the finish. I was able to get them installed today as Bill would not be defeated by the one bad bolt.
