    Yes, I know the LCAs were restored correctly, just curious how the coloring is holding up, because in the photo (post #13) they don't look so yellowish anymore. BUT, the lighting could be distorting the color.

    The angle of the light must be bad, but are the Bee’s LCA still in the cosmoline color? The below pic makes them look dirty. I’m going to paint my LCA in the cosmoline color and hope the coloring holds up. For the ball joints, did you pack them until grease came out? I dread cleaning up...

    Caliper bracket issue/help

    Caliper bracket issue/help

    On the one adapter I just now noticed partial numbers. Now I’m wondering if these were jerry rigged to fit since it looks like a lot of grinding has been done. Didn’t even notice before until questions started being asked.

    Caliper bracket issue/help

    That’s interesting, those brackets/adapters are completely different than mine and don’t appear to have the caliper mounting holes like mine do, nor the U shape where the rotor rides between.

    Caliper bracket issue/help

    With the front end being apart on my 69 Bee, front disk brake car, I discovered this oddity with the caliper bracket, looks like the mounting holes have been torched open to make bigger. Any body have ideas or know where I can get just these brackets please, or do I need to purchase a new...

    69 Bee LCAs coming off

    Now I understand your post. At the time, I didn't realize pivot arms had sleeves on them, but a Mopar buddy just showed me this morning. Now the lights are coming on. Now to find the LCA sleeves, and get old ones out.
