I actually do have something good to say here.
Fram oil filters are not recommended for fresh built bseries pushrod redblocks, but you already knew that. You know it all.

And I heard of you move the lower ball joint to the upper part of control arm it will help lower it more.
So my question.
So I simply just unbolt, move to upper part of control arm.
Thanks

My thoughts would be to weld U channel to the top of the mounting spaces, then tie the u channels together with a plate, also a good idea to add some thickness to the underside.

Thanks for input.
After several posts, and warnings you say you are going to weld the ball joint to the control arm? Thats not a hack job at all....

I stated I got my answer, if I move forth with the modification, I will be taking precautions in doing so. Perfect

You don't know what I do for work, you don't know who I am, and so on. You are sitting behind a computer just wanting to speak your mind, I get it. I dont care either

So that being said, reinforcement, and welding will be taken place to ensure if there is a failure, nothing will cause an accident. This is no different then someone doing a brake job in their driveway, they can do it wrong and kill someone at an intersection.. there is a lot worse home repairs that go on out there, but you make what I will be doing is so deadly.
The post you quoted here was a response to a post by another user, who is not you.

And you can throw in your **** analogies, all you want.
Simply if you don't have anything contributing to the OP, then why speak. Just to be heard.? I value input, but when you become a dick, and start to assume, it has no right to be written.
Future readers should know both the benefits and risks of this mod. Lawsuits are very much a risk in todays age.
Thanks to everyone for their concern.
Like I stated, do the mod at your own risk.

Now I cant wait to see the responses.. let's make this a 20 page of nothing but bull****.

I take everyone's posts into consideration, I see the posts have now went off track of my original post.

To anyone wanting to do this modification, just beware the risks, etc.
Make sure there is enforcement, and other safety measures.

I will be doing this, and hey, If it fails, I will be the first person ever to post pics, since no one can show me evidence of failures.
Thanks
Pretty sure the post above is where the dickery started, and where I suggested not insulting those who give advice on here, they may be valuable in the future. Nobody cares about post counters on here.
This is a public forum. You asked a question and got answers and discussion. What is the problem?
