Hey Zeeman.   The problem we have is Facebook doesnít really work for posting and archiving infor like you presented and it seems to be the go to for daily updates.   I think it is awesome what you have done and would love to know a couple of things.  What Rose joints and where from, cost of materials only.   What was the thread on the rose joints? What did you use for the main shaft.? Is it just bright steel?   Every Beddie regardless of dropping at front would benifit from what you have made.  What do you thing it owes you in fabrication hours ( leaving aside R&D time that is always the biggest part to be begin with) I am surprised that you donít see a commercial opportunity.   Now you have the prototype you can create your bending jigs and the rest looks fairly simple in terms of cutting threads in tube and welding plate for ball,joint.  If you repeat the process on bottom a arm and use Holden ball joints you should be able to fit Holden drop spindles which are nearly $500 cheaper than the ď Bedford ones.  I. Am really keen to follow this through.  Thinking of getting a front cross member so I can start playing but seeing you are halfway there need to pick your brain first.  Would love to give you a call to chat. PM me and we can. Exchange numbers.  PS will put a post on Facebook group to get people to come and look

I donít understand how using stock Bedford stub can change height.  The stub is the middle of the wheel.  Yes mount vt brakes but unless you cut springs or move the position of the stub relative to the position of the a arms the height is going no where

Did you go with Bedford drop,spindles or Holden ?   If you have the camber sorted you could use Holden and change the ball joints. Could you post the instructions. Rod was pretty vague when I spoke to him. As well.

What did it cost you make  or did you do it all yourself ?

Betweeen us all we have to be able to solve this issue.  So many beddies want to,drop the front and still have good geometry.  Who is going to design the kit ?

Vintage air air conditioning and heater as used by all the hot Roders

Gen II ComPac - Heat and Cool

I have this is my 1967 Holden sedan. It is very compact and provides bothe heating and cooling.  It would allow you to remove your Bedford heater unit altogether and is about the same size but has air con as well.  Your biggest challenge will be getting air con hoses the correct length.  I had custom ones made
