it's funny, as I was drafting the post, my first thought was "why didn't I check the length and photograph it?" it's coming, but for now I don't know.

The track width will be at least 4" wider. I'm seriously considering building a tube structure that welds or bolts to the frame.... but who knows, I'm still in the envisioning phase - at this point my lean is towards keeping the stock steering and reversing the spindles; however, that may not be possible.... in any case, I'll post it as it happens (there will be no coloring me as knowledgeable - only dumb enough to make the mistakes to see what happens)

I originally welded in a C-3 cross member and used C-3 control arms and a rear steer box. Then I modified the cross member (narrowed it in front and built pick-up points for C-4 control arms) and added a Woodward front steer rack. Then I modified the cross-member even more to add my own fabricated control arms and a Sweet Engineering R&P. The front tube holds the Speedway Engineering swaybar and the pick-up points for the control arms are on slugs to adjust roll center and anti-dive. the rack is adjustable fore and aft for Ackermann adjustments.

much to consider.... in answer to the prior question - how does it compare with the C3 lower arm... within an inches of the same (size)
