Over the last few days I have fabricated the lower control arms. The welds are satisfactory if not as pretty as the TIG welds on the original control arms. I am waiting for my tube bender to arrive before putting the final braces on the rocker arm, that will give some additional clearance to the steering rack. With any luck I should have the front suspension completed by the end of this weekend.
This picture is the original shock and lower control arm:
This is the new lower control arm with shock mounted, there are still braces to add to the pushrod to keep it from buckling:
