New lift idea

Recommended Posts

Saw this on a yahoo subie group, it looks like they remount the control arm and lengthen the lower a arm. i don't know the practicality of this lift idea but i thought i'd share it none the less

It could work well with a PK lift, giveing one more inch or so at the corners

something like that looks as if it could acommodate an ea82 axle in an ea1 car

 

i know that TOMRHERE wants to figure out something for more suspension travel, maybe you can ponder with him over the idea

That mod would give you the capability to adjust for camber and castor (albeit limited) of the front wheels. That would be a great benefit on a lifted rig.

 

Think it would be of greater benefit to have the shaft of the lower arm, threaded at both ends though, with left hand and right hand thread. That would make the adjustment of camber part a bit easier.

 

Having adjustment on the other rod, would allow for some castor adjustment, but not much. That is usually done at the upper end of the knuckle. But, it may help get the wheel more centered in the fender opening. Which could be of some benefit.

 

One drawback I can invision with having a more or less solid mount on the rear rod, would be transfer of road noise and bump shock to the body. Could be a bit annoying.

 

Have to ponder that idea, and see if I can improve on it some.
