Re: Front Suspension Issue HELP

No question is ever stupid Lou! It's stupid if you don't ask... Now, 1.) I'm not sure what year the ball joint is actually for... Says 68-73. I know there's another one I saw available, but it was a completely different bolt pattern. I know it's a MOOG brand. Believe part number K9011? I will double...

Re: Front Suspension Issue HELP

and this is why you shouldn't rush things! Thank guys! I'm concerned with the clearance still. I don't think it will correct the clearance issue. The guys that have this similar setup, remember the clearance being so close?
