Did you find flared bushings for the control arm bolt?

Keep a good eye on them. I don't think those will last you long. I hope I am wrong.

So I'm gonna try this. Just ordered a High Strength 4140 3/4" Rod. 130k psi yield. I dont have a heat treater nor do i plan to send it out so the plan is to use a rose bud, bend a 90 at each end and quickly quench them in oil. From there' ill cut the ends to length and dress them up for some more heim joint end links.

I had a teacher build his own sprint car sway bars using a similar method, no heat treat or fancy cryo tank.

The laundry livery looks sweet, it fits the cars "usefulness" vibe really well.

i found a 20" piece of 4140 in shop, the press guy is gonna give me a test bend. if it goes well i can avoid heating the bends and hopefully keeps its properties intact. BUT i just had another idea involving heating the link end and pressing them flat and drilling multiple holes for a little bit of "tuning". I need to rethink my mount on the lateral link, right now its at 3 oclock which would be twisting the link on its bushings

i think if i leave ends long, i can weld a tab on top like a dorsal fin. this is full compressed to it rides a couple inches higher now

Put on my superman jammies and started cutting. I'm pretty happy were im at. I like the new joint mounts acting like a stiffener and right up by knuckle so the bar isn't flexing the lateral link

I like the idea of pressing the ends flat and drilling multiple holes. Allows a bit more room for adjustment since you really can't be sure how the car will react with something like this.

Maybe try a pipe die from a cheapo pipe bender to help the bend hold shape better?
