obviously prices are all subject to change at any moment, but yeah for $2.52/lf for the 1.75x120 isn't bad to me. couple towns down the road and i've got to pick it up. i tried one of those "metals online" whathave you instant quote places and the same material quoted out closer to $3000 for that price, i'd be more than happy to buy a goat built pallet of already cut metal!I got a quote for 4 sticks of 1.75 .120 DOM from my supplier for $590!
edit: making some progress in bend tech. some notes for myself and others, yellow is links at ride height, pink is links +6" (full stuff), Red tube is 1.75x.188 dark green is 1.75x.120 light green is 1.75x.095. saved a bit over 20 lbs by using 95 instead of 120 wall just on those little braces
this is using a subframe 'depth' of 9" and puts the total subframe weight around 180lbs (head math instead of real math to subtract out weight of links) entire assembly with one set of links was 242lbs
Playing around with this i noticed my front upper link was going to be waaaay out in space being that short, so i stretched it out a bunch and made it a bit easier to mount in real life, should still have plenty of clearance for the front driveshaft.
more measuring of car, more guestimating where seats will go, more guestimating of tube placement and i should be able to get a fairly close total LF count :rasta:
