So don't bother posting then? It's only the internet, no need to take it too seriously.

Don't take it too hard Merlin, a lot of people only check the site infrequently. I found the discussion including your comments pretty interesting. A friend of mine wants to lower his front end at some point and I will pass on this thread, some good info.

Probably not, they would be too expensive I think, especially for such a small market.

Hey Zeeman.   The problem we have is Facebook doesn’t 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 don’t 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 “ 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

Hey some of us  are still here....
A lot of people are on Facebook now....it seems more
Responsive and way easier to upload pictures
And chatting with others is just about instant on Facebook...
But it has it's downside too..doesn't archive things like this forum....
There seems to be a  massive increase in Van's being rebilut, restored and back on the road...theres may be a demand for your efforts here.....
Cheers Wendy & Ray

Don't stress Merlin, Im sure like me there are people reading the posts who don't have any mechanical knowledge to comment,  I'm stoked like others in the info you provided, I just dont have the capital, or know how to go any further.
And like Wendy said, this is still a very important tool for anyone building, restoring a Beddy, I used this site a lot chasing past info.  :) :) :)
never to old
