Guys.

I'm looking at getting some Eccentric eliminator plates made for the 67 to 73's. I have measured up a set and have got a rough price over the phone for them to be water cut.
They will cost roughly $50 for the 4 plates if 5 sets were made. If more sets are ordered at the same time the cost comes down a little.

I also have a price for the 4 hole balljoint wedge to be cnc machined.
There is a set up fee for the machine of $350 and then each wedge is $15ea. So if 10 sets were ordered it would be $ 65.

I thought I would throw this up and see if there was much interest.

I'm also getting a price for the 65-66 Vario-centric kit just waiting for a price on the weld on brackets. So if you are interested in them let me know as well.

Cheers
Dave

I am looking for a sample upper 3 bolt arm so Hawko can take measurements off it. Probably one in the shed (next to a certain diff center... Shocked )

Like Kerry mentions above if I can measure a 3 hole balljoint I could get them made as well.
I would assume that the price would be the same as the 4 bolt. Just need to order enough sets to share the load of the set up cost of the machine($350).
Hopefully he will give me a firm price early next week.

Next week I will also price some grade 8 bolts for both the camber kits and the wedge kits?
I was just looking to see if there was enough interest to make it viable.

May be easier to buy one, what would they be worth $25? If you can get some 3 hole ones I'll have a set of 3 & 4 wedges.

Hey Hawko, did this go anywhere? I was talking to oz yesterday and I need to source a wedge kit for the pending Shelby drop on my 65. It's the original 4 bolt type. Oz thought that you may have end up getting them made up. Otherwise, recommendations welcome.

I will someday think of something clever to say.

Thanks Boofhead.
1-3/4" drop... What are your thoughts guys?
Is there any known compromise for street use, or any issues in general?

You will be getting a 1" drop on the front bolt & 1 1/8" drop on the rear to promote a little more anti dive.

1 3/4" is too radical for road use. The Brambett's at Mustangs Plus do a lot of track racing. That is why they have that option. They belong to NorCal SAAC.

No there wasn't enough interest so I ended up machining a set for myself.
I'll fit them one day when I can find some time to work on the car.

I primary posted that for the wedge kit - not suggesting the 1 3/4 drop.
See the Tech section under suspension for the details for Kerry's suggested 1 + 1 1/8 drop.

Thanks guys. Thought this may be the case. I'll go search for just the wedges. They must be a dime a dozen in the states, if not some of the local suppliers.

Other than the templates all the other gear is valid for the Kerry drop special.

I will talk to my machinist down the road from me. He is doing a small job for me ATM & will also do the strut rods, so I imagine the wedges would not be too hard for him to make if we have a template.

I think I have the drawing somewhere.
I'll have a look and see if I can find it.
