<STRONG>wheelingpiazza what did you do about the rear axle.
Brian, you need to take a good look at mine some time. I don't think there is really enough meat there to just have the casting as a pad. Grind it enough to fit the perch, then also cut some off the bottom of the perch so it comes out the same height as the other pad. I cut mine down far enough that I had to drill a hole in the casting to clear the spring center bolt. Some grooving is neccessary to get the u bolts to fit right, but that can be done with an angle grinder.Originally posted by built2lastblazer:
<STRONG>does anyone think it would be better to grind a flat spot on the casting and drill a hole for a spring pin, or would you rather grind a radius so you can weld on a perch? id like to stay away from weldong dissimilar metals if possible.......also, has anyone ground grooves for the ubolts?</STRONG>
Use the stock cast SUA perch on the driver's side for your new SOA perch on the housing. Then you're welding cast to cast. Mucho ginding though. The u-bolts are easy, just takes some time like others have mentioned.Originally posted by built2lastblazer:
