Front end parts needed
« on: October 16, 2016, 09:52:55 AM »
Hi, need some parts for a front end rebuild. Upper and lower suspension arms, both sides & a pair of steering arms that bolt to the spindle. Must be in good condition. I'm in Melbourne. Thanks for any help! This is what happened to the old spindle when I took the front end apart (!!):

Yeah, I might contact him this week.. the arms I have now were chromed.. after looking at the spindles, I doubt they were treated for hydrogen embrittlement! I'm using drop spindles from Stubtech & figure I might as well do the whole thing from scratch..
