One thing's for sure, the parts in your SQ will be seen as anything but "cheap". :drool: This SQ is going to be spoiled rotten with super cool parts. 8)

btw, are u planning on making your own front/rear trailing arms to hook up to those
control arms? i was thinking some thick walled chromoly tubing w/ the ends tapped
would be way cheaper but i gotta make sure my machinist can do reverse threading....

We are planning on making copies of all of the parts, Craig and Mike need a set as well ;)
Yep, going to be some kind of a tube with threaded ends.

This is Mr K's setup.

Weld in treaded bungs are readily available for virtually any tube size. They could be cheaper than buying expensive left hand taps. :wink:

That is for adjusting the stiffness of the bar, if it's horizontal it's soft, vertical stiff, and anything in between, very cool way of adjusting.

Parts look good Martin,
If you're making a SQ clone are you going to cut the rally light mounting Blocks off your Front Crossmembers? If so, and you want to unload them, let me know.

Rest of your stuff looks pretty straight forward.
I recommend you alter your rear differential mount location and your mounts for leading and trailing arms before you go too much farther on your chasis.
Also... Keep in mind the little hole on the Control arm, is for drilling a small M6 alignment bolt through the tongue once you get the alignment where you want it for camber and toe. Install a bolt through there and you can get back a good alignment in a hurry if you alter ride height.

Why do that?, just go with the spherical bearings and weld a threaded stud on the bottom of your Wheel bearing housings. Much easier to do anywork on the car and a better setup.(repairable)

I'll be using Mr K's front cross member, I have the original street version as well and will consider selling them to finance the rest of the build.
Same goes for the street control arms with ball joint.

Yep, knew about the small bolt for alignment purpose. and I have the oem floor pieces for control arm track rods.

Image

These require the rear seat area to be stock and uncut, same as rally cars.

It wouldn't be an off the shelf stud, IIRC its fat in the body with a shoulder then a smaller threaded bolt head. Easy to weld to a steel bearing housing compared to the threaded block required on the aluminum bearing housings.

the ones i had seen before for a sport had the same bump and two bolt tabs liek an oem balljoint so it recesses into the knuckle and has a tapered stud and then small male threads to retain the rose joint

trying to find a pic but cant

Just have these pieces machined, this is what Mr K supplied me with... bolts into both front and rear struts and allows rose joint use.
