    Re: Creative Steel WIDE WHEEL TRAILING ARMS

    UPDATE on the project:


    The tubes have BEEN cut, the gusset are cut, our super bad-ass new "CREATIVE STEEL logo" metal stamp will be here tomorrow (that we'll use to mark all our products with) I will stamp the gussets before forming and welding. The Johnny Joints will be here on Monday according to UPS.com. So that will be the day the actual fab work begins.

    The request for the spherical bearings kinda caught me off guard. I hadn't done any research on the "Johnny Joints" so I didn't know which brand I wanted to use so we lost about a week while I waited for samples to arrive. Didn't feel comfortable spending $1000 -$1500 of your guys' money without seeing the merchandise first. I went with Rusty's joints. I liked the quality better than the other sample but knew that the "other" sample was made in USA (as advertised). Rusty didn't advertise that fact so I was in a bit of an ethical dilemma. Then I asked the secretary at Rusty's, she says they make them in house.........SOLD. I'm kinda old school on the "Made in USA" thing. I don't paying a bit more if I know I'm keeping one of ours out of the soup line.


    Bottom line.... About two more weeks before product starts leaving here (powder coat will take a few days)


    Could someone update the guys on another forum. I'm not yet a vendor over there yet. Already got my "you know what" slapped for talking too much.

    This is hilarious !!! "Hey, What the $%#@^% is going on here"?

    "Why is Lil421A getting preferential treatment"?



    He's not getting special treatment, he bought a set of the arms with the urethane bushings at the front end of the arms. We've had those available since I first posted that we were making these arms. The group buy is for arms with the spherical bearings at the front end of the arms.


    UPDATE :

    The arms are finished being fabbed and will go to powder coat tomorrow or the next day. I want to send a few sets of toe rods with this load for the guys that wanted them in black.

    Re: Creative Steel WIDE WHEEL TRAILING ARMS

    Here's the list of guys that got trailing arms shipped yesterday.

    RavenLS6, ManofMetal, Dmax04V, Britt29, IDriveaV.


    To answer the previous question....The group buy is over, but we have a few sets of trailing arms with urethane bushings in the front end of the arm, not the spherical bushings like the group buy version. We have the urethane bushing version in our car and had our prototypes in the car for three years. No problems to report.

    Re: Creative Steel WIDE WHEEL TRAILING ARMS

    That was some fast shipping. Looks like they made it intact.

    Trailing arms just went to the post office for the following:

    DK, 1BadCTS, Dtrain and ItsaV.


    If you are part of the group buy on these trailing arms and you are not listed on any of the three previous lists YOU need to call us. We either need final payment or your color choice or if you want the hub bushings included.

    I was surprised to see them today! The box was ripped a bit from the weight of the arms but the impervious bubble wrap/plastic wrap job you guys did held up tremendously. Thanks again!
