Bump Steer

Not B body but,

Watching TV last night and these guys were building their own suspension.

While they get the bump steer concept, it appears they don't get the , bending moment, common sense, death part.

Well it looks so obviously wrong I had to look at it 20 times to make sure I'm not missing something. Hard to imagine how that would not fail even as a forged single piece?

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, , 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds with CV MMC, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear). Finally, wait for it... LT-4 knock module!
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!

That is really scary. They need to use a B-body spindle. They could also weld a triangle brace between the "pipe" and the bottom of the spindle. Someone should contact them, and warn them of their impending doom.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH
