    upper / lower control arms question 72 charger

    I would pull the lower control arms off and box them in. You can get the plates online or make them yourself if you have access to a welder, it’s pretty easy to fabricate. Here’s mine, I’ve also got firm feel tubular upper control arms. I think the only company that makes tubular lowers is qa1.

    Sad day for the Roadrunner…

    I’m with Erie insurance. Going to switch to Grundy because they’re easier to work with and they are actually cheaper. Also on that note, my insurance company did send out a fire inspector and they could not determine what caused it. I’ve got that switch on my build list.

    Sad day for the Roadrunner…

    Yes. They gave me 75% of what I had it insured for so I got to keep the title to the car which I was really happy about. I took out the engine and what was left of the interior, dash, air box, etc.. I sanded down the engine bay to bare metal and hit it with some primer. Next will be wire...

    KYB vs Monroe vs Bilstein?

    I had KYBs on the front of my Roadrunner. They leaked all of the shock fluid out as soon as I set the car on the ground. Now I have a pair from a company called Sachs. They only make them for the front though. You can get them from eBay for $90 a pair and the ride quality is great.

    Those are good precautions, I’m sure my paranoia will get me into those habits if or when I get it fixed.

    Sad day for the Roadrunner…

    Yeah it definitely could have been worse. If nobody was home we would have lost out whom house and about three other cars so I’m just thanking the good lord it only go as bad as it did. I’m going to try and save it.

After getting all new ball joint, tie rods, control arms and bushings for the roadrunner I took it out for a front end alignment to a very trusted place that have aligned many cars for my family. I got it done and it drove the best it’s ever drove...

    Clutch pedal issue

    So just following up on this thread, I got the new A body adjuster rod in the mail today and I got it on the car and that solved the issue.

    Clutch pedal issue

    Okay, thanks for the information, I already got a new rod ordered so I’ll try that first since that will be the easiest solution for now and if that doesn’t work, I’ll try something else.
