Anyone know where , or who might be making , or have an old set for sale " reasonable " ?
I have a set not-for-sale, but I do have the "blueprints" which CuddaZappa published on our Dippy.org forum...you'd have to get someone to make 'em for you...local tool&die shop might from iron/aluminum stock?
Only solid ones I'm aware of are made by Firm Feel.
I suppose it depends on what you mean by "reasonable" though. They are a bit pricey.
Firmfeel Mopar Suspension and Steering
The poly ones are fairly solid and cost quite a bit less, if that's an option.
I had thought about getting a quote on them from my local machine shop..just didnt have the exact plans for them.
Like to see if someone could make an extra set .
So you thinking about getting some made ? Firm feel kinda pricey in my book .
Can you get them transfer and posted here ?
Yeah, i'd been thinking about it. Considering the cost of poly bushings though, unless there pretty close in price..i'll probably just stick with the poly. I've not heard enough of a difference between solid and poly to justify it.
One reason CudaZappa stopped making them is post 75 people tend to be cheap.
I was going to repop them, but see above.
I have a Firm Feel setup. All I need is a bit of encourement to get up and put ‘em on.
Another setup would be a very nice for my other car – but FFI’s cost too much for me currently.
I’d rather not go Poly – but don’t have any good reasons not to.
Anything has to be better than 40 year old rubber.
So ,,,,,, are we just kicking the idea around , or would someone be able to make these ?
those look just like the ones on my workbench - just waiting to install themselves . . .
you then sayin they might be for sale ?
They could be made – if someone had “material” to work with.
Need to look at mine again, but I think there was a inner lip made on mine – that I don’t see in the picture.
If one had access to a metal lathe – then flattened the sides – they would be easy to make (note: I have no metal working experience – only wood working experience – so don’t take my word for it). I just hadn’t seen material around to work with that size, before.
I'm still looking for a more cost effective means for another set.
I want to replace them on both cars.
Let me know if you find that way . I might be interested in buying a set off'n ya .
Are they solid aluminum? I can see if I can get a hold of the girl whos dad works at the welding shop and see what he can do. Alternatively, the guy I took my heads to last, thats a machine shop..he does everything there. He may be able to do them. If they can, ill get a quote and pass it along
Those are solid aluminum Firm Feel units.
There are raised pads that locate the K-Frame.
These. are 1 5/16" tall.
That dimension can be changed, for example, increasing the height to 1 3/4" tall will give more clearance between the valve cover and power brake booster.. also giving more clearance from carb to hood..
I bought the poly bushings thru Summit for the K frame and torsion bars bushings for my 79 Cordoba for less than $100. Prothane is the brand.Plan to install them next month.Got to be better than the almost 40 old rubber. I did not get the rear bushings or spring isolators yet but they have them too.
