Speciality Products Company in Longmont, Colorado have adjustable radius ruds for under $100 IIRC. Bolt in and go. I have a set of those and a set of custom made radius rods that I did myself. No pics but its nothing real special. One thing to keep in mind is when you add caster to these cars, it'll start to bind the bushing in the lower control arm and will tear/prematurely wear out and then you'll have another issue to deal with. I have a few ideas for custom control arms but I'm not ready to give out my ideas until I get something built this summer:banana:
