Can of worms opened

Post  Fifty - Five on Thu 22 Jan 2009, 7:35 pm

Well I finally got the king pin bushing problem figured out and the spindles on the car. and in doing so I figured out that my passenger front fender is a repro cause I couldn't turn right. nothing a lil beating with a body hammer couldn't work out tho. It aint the prettiest but it'll work for now. next up I was thinking my car was low on the beam and I could put the spindles on and raise the beam and get that cadillac ride, well it turns out the beam was made to be low and go lower and my stock chrome spindles that came off sold in like 30 mins on samba, so cant just put them back on so now the front is on the deck till I get a new beam and my front wheels won't work cause of the offset, so I had to borrow my buddies 15x5.5 fuchs with 175/55 just so I can drive it. But damn if it aint looking like a badass right now tho.

My buddy has the stock beam that came out of his 65. And he said I could get it if I need it, but I would love to get one of the airkewld 4" beams with a set of bad brakes.

If somebody will buy my truck I'll just go ahead and throw the discs and a new beam under it and problem solved.

I'll try to get some pics up tommorrow. Its nasty right now, but been driving it all week.

I love the look, but it hurts my feelings when it smacks the ground and I hear pieces of the road bouncing around under the car. That and those are my buddies front wheels, mine wont work. I want to try and trade my set of 4-15x6 late fuchs for a pair of 15x5.5 earlies. we'll see how it goes.
