I'm looking for opinions (I know they're like asses, everyone's has one). A few years ago I put my 40 Plymouth on the road and I lowered it using reverse eye leafs and 3" lowering blocks on the back and on the front I moved the spring plate from the top of the A-arm to the bottom and installed areostar springs. It looks good but I'm looking to improve the ride a bit there's only about 1 1/2" of travel till I hit the bump stops and it hits often. I'm thinking of using dropped uprights and moving the spring plate back to get some travel again. I bought a set of cut and welded dropped uprights a few years back from the Cloverdale swap meet but am unsure about using them. The guy I bought them from mentioned that an old time hot rodder from the area made them back in the day (can't remember the name) and from the chipped paint and wear they look like this they've seen road use but I'm still hesitant to put them on and load my family up for a rip down the highway. They're welded with a stick welder and I can see a little slag but having grown up on a farm I've seen and welded stuff that wasn't really pretty but was really tough, the difference being none of that stuff kept the wheels on at 70 mph. So my questions are how does the welds look to you? Any way to check them? Should I use them as is? Add more weld to them? Use the king kin bosses to modify the set on the car now? Hang them on the wall and call Fatman? Though not ticketed I'm a good welder and have a 300 amp MiG, 200 amp Tig or a 600 amp stick welder to use ( not going try to weld it with a 110v MiG). Is it asking too much to tell from the pictures? Opinions? Thanks.
