Hi,

I'm preparing the rear and front axel to blast and after to zinc.

In this weekend i notice that the right rear control arm is short in comparison the the left.

This is normal?

Mine were definately the same length. Never paid attention to which was which when I took them off so compared them very closely before going back on and they were identical.

Thing that strrikes me is, that if they were a different length, then wouldn't the axle be squint? Unless the chassis mounting point on one side had been moved back, or a different axle was used. Seems decidedly odd :blink:

Hi Costa have checked mine and they are the same about 450 mm with a slight kink in them ...hope this helps mate.. biggrin.gif

Hello Mick,

Yes it helps and a lot, with the length i can check the correct control arm.

I'm to talk with a friend of my father that work with stainless steel, and i will ask if he made the panhard rod, and now 2 control arms in stainless steel.

Thanks for all

Cheers

Costa
