what a pain in the ass to build this beam yesterday.... I didn't have any bushings.. and wanted to try making one from stock tubes anyway... and decided that the upper adjuster was just gonna get deleted... So I cut the tubes into 3 pieces and narrowed them 2.25 inch's... perfect for stock wheels.. stock bushings, stock grease zerks, single adjuster with top tube turned slighlty.. also shortened center pin 1/2 and now he has a castor beam too.... longer towers etc.. all the goods... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Yes sir... We kicked it's ass.... But about 2 minutes after we got it on the ground.. I got my boot caught up under the dog leg and fell solidly on my ASS..... Hurts like hell.. like I have a hernia.. but I went and had a doc at the VA check my balls.. he said no hernia.. just pulled muscles.. takes it easy for a few days... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)


so no good side shots... Dave had to clean up and get back home... =D> =D>

GREAT weekend... kicked me right in the balls.. #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

Hi John.

Do the new beam plates gave relocated holes for the torsion tubes to give more caster?
If so how much caster do you add and does it make a big difference to the feel?
