Re: i need some beams

Why do you want bent ones? Is it 2WD? Where are you?

You'll have to check out Camburg or Autofab - companies that make bent I-beams for Fords.

Re: i need some beams

thanks for the info, but i dont want to pay 1600.00 at autofab for the front end , i realy dont think a pair of bent beams,2 coils and the arrms are worth that. and camburg gets there beams from that guy in alpine, wont do business with that guy again.

Re: i need some beams

If you don't want to pay, you'll have to research the camber/caster angles and leverages of the bent beams. They bend and reinforce the beam, as well as space the bottom ball-joint mount out for proper alignment for the given amount of lift. Add in the heim-jointed ends and you've got a bulletproof front end.

The fabrication itself is no sweat...these guys have just done the R&D to get the right angles.
