Look around at the welds on your frame. Most of them are stiched, Why, because if a weld stars to crack it will stop. If it is welded solid it will continue all the way around. When I use to help build dragster frames we never welded them solid on the tubes there was always at least two breaks in the bead!!! :grinpimp:

heres teh junk under the frame im talkin about....

On your crossmemeber, is that 2x3 tubing with the shackle centered on the tubing? And then it looks like the crossmember is offset outward about 1/2" when welded to the frame? Sorry for these questions, but I was looking for some good measurements to start mine. Wanted to have the mounts set so it moves the axle forward.. How far forward will your axle be?

Thanks!

its a pitman arm puller that snapped(and got rewelded) then bent instead. nothing would take that fawker off, 3lb sledge, thread penetrant, torch heat, even ground into it with a cutoff wheel and tried to chisel it in half.....10 minute soak in coca cola......POP! off she came, even with the wankered puller....... :evil:
