Just like the title states. I will soon be selling front cross-members for the AD 1/2 ton trucks (and possibly the 3/4) for mounting GM Metric A-arms and components. (GM Metric include the '78-'88 El Camino, Malibu, Cutlass, Monte Carlo, S-10, Camaro etc. These chassis are also used as the basis for many racing applications, so tubular upper and lower A-arms large brakes, etc. are available)
Background: I am building a Resto-Mod and seriously investigated the AD engineering kit for an S-10. Being an engineer, I really didn't like the wheel spacers needed in the front to get the track width correct for the AD. I also have considered the Mustang 2 IFS, however I believe keeping the make throughout the project. GM on GM, FoMoCo on FoMoCo, Mopar on Mopar, etc. Being an enterprising individual, I believe that there may be a market for such product.
This leads me to offering my designed cross member to other 'bolters. This will be jig welded, machine cut pieces.
These will first be available as weld-in, followed shortly (relative) by bolt-in. Estimated availability is early 2008
Price is estimated in the $400 range for an unpainted Weld-In cross member (I have to get final costing from the vendor). Stock components from a Donor will work, as well as many aftermarket components. (I can also look into sourcing whole kits)
Once available, I will update pricing, shipping, etc.
Please contact me with any interest
