nifty suspension solution.

Have you done so much to the car today that it just doesn't fit into one section, or are you too damn lazy to split it all up? Either way, this is the section for you.

Well while working on the green cabby, I needed to replace the Passenger side control arm.

When taking it loose from the Knuckle I said this was too easy........
The Strap Holding the Sway bar to the control arm was broken, and allowing the Sway Bar mount to rub the CV.
Well of course the part is nla at the stealership, and couldn't find one.... but I had a EUREKA moment.
I measured the distance between the holes center to center.... 2".
I ran to the hardware store and got a 2" SS ubolt some washers and such... Worked like a champ. Probably stronger than the metal strap that broke at the ears.

So tomorrow I take it and get the alignment.......
The parts were 20 bucks from Moogie, but my 4.00 ss solution was a whole lot easier to handle.

Yes as matter of fact, I have the Luck o'the Irish...everything I touch turns to fertilizer of the bovine variety.
