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.
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.
