We had fun with Rusty’s baja yesterday, it left it’s mark. 🙂
He threw me a monkey wrench with the 28mm torsion bars, been a long time since I indexed a pair of those. First time we set it down the suspension wouldn’t even move. Second time was a charm tho, came out right. That ass end is not going to sag! Ditched the coilovers and sent him home with no rear shocks.RustabusParticipantApril 14, 2019 at 6:45 pmPost count: 2002

Yeah, way better!! So I’m lookin at shit on the computer and it says my ball joint beam blows for off-road!!! Can/should I bolt in an early beam????? My fiberglass Buggy is a 68 and seems to work just fine????Baja MarkParticipantApril 16, 2019 at 4:15 amPost count: 451
Can’t just bolt an early beam in – linkpin is completely different with the tubes closer together. You’d need to swap the whole panhead 😅alykatParticipantApril 16, 2019 at 5:07 amPost count: 511

There are adapters available to bolt a link beam to a ball pan, but they push the beam ahead by the thickness of the adapter. Primarily intended for buggies, but might not be a big issue with a Baja.volksaddictParticipantApril 16, 2019 at 6:19 amPost count: 650
Your ball joint front end will be fine, you’re not racing the baja in it.
Yank that fucker out and get some adjusters so we can weld ’em in!FranzKeymasterApril 16, 2019 at 7:18 amPost count: 3807
All it need to be faster is some lighting bolt across the doors. I’ll hook up some sweet graphics the next time it’s here. Maybe.John JonesKeymasterApril 16, 2019 at 5:14 pmPost count: 7121
