Quite a few hours shaping that slab of steel plate! The plate for the other side is a SUA pad turned sideways, I still have to add a bevel for the reversed direction the spring will now flex. I put a nice bevel on this one. On the GM HD44, it uses one very wide ubolt for the cast section, and one thin one that slips over the tube. IIRC, on a jeep D44, both pumpkin mount ubolts are wider.

Now I need a drop pitman arm, and I can finish up the steering. If anyone wants to buy my un-used hellcreek 2" plates, there's a post in For Sale.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
