I was almost afraid to ask this but here goes. Has anyone ever shortened a control arm? That is: moved the spindle ball joint location back toward the engine 1 inch. upper and lower. I could have posted this under my other thread but I wanted to make sure this got attention. I cant use any more offset in wheel. No-one offers a manufactured short control arm that I can find for a 73 <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:State w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Riviera</st1lace></st1:State> plat form and I need 1 more inch to be happy. It works fine but I want more clearance. Thats the issue. Ive put it under a 53 buick.
