My new How To video on Boxing Rear Lower Control Arms

I have had a how to "box rear lower control arms" page on my web site for a long time now.

https://www.lever-family-racing.com/...g-control-arms

I have now added a video to my You Tube Channel on that subject and it can be seen at this link.



Let me know what you think.

Re: My new How To video on Boxing Rear Lower Control Arms

Glenn rebuilt my upper & Lower control arms and Powder coated them. ( MOOG parts) He also powder coated my cross shafts in Metallic gray ( for a little contrast) for my FAKE SS Sta. Wgn............ This is not a JOKE....... Glen is the man! Glenns work is............ EXCELLENT

Re: My new How To video on Boxing Rear Lower Control Arms

Great job!! I'm seriously suffering from shop envy! I ran across a video of a guy using a bucket blaster, no eye/lung protection, and a stick welder, so glad this wasn't you!!

I've got a pair of the boxing straps sitting on my garage floor at home and am now more than ready to tackle them!

Is there any way you could measure the hole's distance to end of arm or center of bushing so I know where to drill? What size bit?

This is probably a stupid question but how do you know front from rear? I couldn't really tell on mine when I pressed in new bushings. One other note, I used a hose clamp to hold my spacers in place so they wouldn't squirt out while I was pressing the new bushing in. One popped out on me and struck my thumb, sucker was sore for a while!

Thank you for sharing!!

Hotwire,I did my own a few years back,if I'm not mistaken Glenn had the dimensions for the holes posted on his website. Otherwise I'd bet the Google machine could find the info for you.

Not really sure if there is a difference between front and rear. I am sure a protectionist could tell you.

Re: My new How To video on Boxing Rear Lower Control Arms

Great video, Glenn! Can't wait to see the front control arm video.

BTW... you helped me out by selling me the little patch to make my own "12-bolt" uppers. It worked out great and saved me the time of fabrication. Thanks again!

Re: My new How To video on Boxing Rear Lower Control Arms

How many times can it be said? Glenn is the man for boxing up these old control arms.

It should be mentioned that the boxing plates are available from most of the usual suspect vendors.

Glenns work is always faultless. he also does the modification trimming the arms so they don't grind on the 12 bolt housing, just like the factory versions. Pics on his site.
