    Great thread, looks like you are keeping at it. Been there with my ‘70 since the original stub was bent. Why did you decide to replace the stub?

    Thanks. On the original frame The rear crossmember near to the torsion bar was gone. Murphy’s law says if I drive it it will be dangerous. See pic. More I poked the more it crumbled. So I figure I would replace the frame. Was able to drive it get a frame off a 67 fury set up for 383 (swaybars). It’s tirned into a bigger project that initially anticipated but equally rewarding so far.

    Pic of old frame -

I previously bought a factory disk brake set up off a 67 Fury for the front end. Came w upper and lower arms attached. Spindle is the prize. So I thought I would start to take it upart, clean up, paint and install new bushings. Today I took apart the left side. Tomorrow will be the right. Bagged and tagged loose parts. Looked better after cleaning and brushing.

    Best way to figure out how things go together....take it apart.

    Have a good weekend
