    Replacing the front end. ball joints, bushings, the works. One of the sway bar links broke off at the threads. Would anyone have a spare for sale? This was a northern car, everything is difficult to get apart. Also will need to weld a patch about 12" long where the frame bottom is rusting through under the firewall. Still a great car.

    I think you should buy 2 of those links from PST & replace both at the same time. For your frame, you might find an aftermarket patch here at Safe-T-Cap https://www.autorust.com/safe-t-cap-kits/
    Or you could try @moparmark over at for www.forbbodiesonly.com. He has a TON of rust-free Mopar frame pieces & is a good guy that does a lot of shows. I've met him & bought 2 front frame rails from him.

    Thanks guys. I will def get two links, they should be a matched set. Will check out the frame possibilities. It is kind of strange, the bottom 8" or so of the frame is rusted out in one place only, the sides and top are as new. There is some other rust in the quarters and rockers showing up after 10 years, but it isn't structural.

    Whoops.... it's @moparmarks at FBBO (and "s" at the end). If the frame is bad on the driver's side, then it may have had a battery burst years ago dumping acid down into the frame rail. I've heard this isn't that rare.

    BTW, Auto Rust has dropped Mopar caps and refers you to Classic Industries. Haven't found the frame repairs yet, I'll call on Monday nd also write to moparmarks.

    Dang.... if worse comes to worse you could just grind down to bare metal & weld in a piece of plate steel since it's the bottom piece of the frame that's rusted (assuming you can get to it all)
