Default Guldstrand rear toe adjusters

Has anyone made these adjusters for a c3 and how do they work?
Do they replace the pivot bolt?

Saw a picture of one once. I think redvetracr posted it.

Pretty much a threaded sleeve on a threaded stud. You need to drill out and tap the pivot in the frame. Not sure on any of this

If you have chrome, and load the photobucket plug in, I’ve posted photos of home made ones.

Pretty much a copy of the photo mentioned above. But, no grease nipple as it would weaken the bolt.

I can’t log in to my photo bucket, but could probably find the pics later today or Sunday.

Here are two photos. These pretty much show everything. There are more intermediate steps in the thread, the links can be used directly if you want ( copy link and delete [img] ).



Not to hard if you have a lathe.




The car was on jack stands, so my welding was even worse than on a bench.

You have to have the frame out or cut the fender for installation.

Were could I purchase these?

I am raising the pivot point 1 1/2”, so should I fill the stock holes?

Just find a local machinist and take him 3/4 in grade 5 hardware. I have a frame that Im going to do differently, Two positions.

The link above has all the details on what I did.

Pivot bolt: stock dia.

Copy photo bucket links from my old thread and remove [img]. You have to quote to see the links Im talking about.

Once you see the photos, it will make sense.

I took your advice and loaded a photobucket fix. Works like a charm. Thanks
