Don't buy those ones Berg advertises, those things suck. The ones in the first pic from cb are nice.
Oops. Missed that you were looking to narrow the beam. In that case, go with the CB ones...Kafer_Mike said:Depends how much talent, time and/or money you have to blow. I agree the CB adjuster are the better choice for adjustability, but they do require you to disassemble the beam, cut it, weld in the adjuster(s), and reassemble. You need to make sure the welds are solid and the beam is kept straight. With the Berg unit, you don't have to cut the beam. Simply drill out the slot and weld on the locater plate. I've seen it done without disassembling the beam.
And they bend. Too light wt for a street car IMO.63Vdubmann said:Just go with a 4" Aluminum one. There peerrrdy
Everyones ALWAYS got an opinion! I'm currently remaking the mounting hardware so well see if it holds up like I think it should.Hotrodvw said:And they bend. Too light wt for a street car IMO.
I did 3 1/2 inch narrow. I did not have to cut out the body on the 61' sedan.Lanky said:Yeah but then you have to cut out the body for it to fit and thats what I am trying to avoid. Ball joint would be the way to go but I'm kinda partial to my original pan for my 59'!
:agree: Aluminum is a soft metal. It's pretty, but not something I would trust to stand up to potholes & curbs. I certainly wouldn't want to be the one to find out how an aluminum beam would fair in an accident. If this is going in a street car that will see road duty, I'd say you're better off having a beam coated. The finish will be much easier to keep looking nice vs. trying to keep aluminum polished.Hotrodvw said:And they bend. Too light wt for a street car IMO.
Do you by any chance have any pictures of it?Jrice said:I did 3 1/2 inch narrow. I did not have to cut out the body on the 61' sedan.
Build mounts off the top of the Shock tower. Simple fix
