Vega rear control arm mount reinforcment. Josh, need help

Postby spyderwagon » Sun May 04, 2008 5:05 pm

I need help with the reinforcment of my rear control arm mounts. Car is very solid but I would rather be safe than sorry.

Is there a kit that is sold to do this? If not, any input form guys that have done this would be great.

Thanks
Logan

Look throught this buildup, check out what he did with the rear subframe deal. I did this to my car and oh man what a difference, by far the best thing I have done to my car.

Wow, that's a good link, never looked it over before!

Follow that example Logan!

As far as what I did, the one side was easy to reinforce, since the bracket came off completely on its own. It made it easy to gusset. I tried to do it to the other one, but it'd very had to gusset with the MIG welder I have access to. So I just rewelded the original welds, THAT WERE STARTING TO SEPARATE!!!! I'll have to buy me a welder someday, and tear it apart more. I don't know how well you can reinforce it without tearing it apart further. Just have to break the other one off! lol!!
