Ridetech upgrades our underwhelming 1964 Project "BluePrint" Chevelle with its complete A-body suspension, including new upper and lower a-arms and splined sway bar for the front with a new rear upper and lower trailing arm kit and sway bar. Of course, Ridetech's adjustable coilovers were bolted in on all four corners.

Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing. The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada, where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse. Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the 420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home. So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!

PST's new Catapult® Billet Aluminum Trailing Arms
A new breed of trailing arms from the industry leader in musclecar technology -- PST. Catapult® Billet Aluminum Lower Trailing Arms with Alu-Max® Pivot Joints are the finest trailing arms available for your GM A-body. For pricing and ordering info, click here: https://www.p-s-t.com/pc-4943-618-billet-style-chevrolet-chevelle-malibu-el -camino-monte-carlo-1964-72.aspx Stock lower trailing arms are flimsy and weak, leading to poor handling and excessive wheel hop. Most of the aftermarket offers conventional fabricated steel trailing arms with polyurethane bushings -- a design that is very stiff, but does not allow for the axle to move freely throughout the range of motion. This can cause a bind in the rear suspension, leading to snap oversteer and unpredictable handling. PST's Catapult® Billet Aluminum Trailing Arms solve this problem with an innovative solution that delivers smooth, consistent, predictable handling for your GM musclecar. Starting with a solid block of 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum, we machine a sleek superstructure that yields an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. Each end is fitted with an Alu-Max® Pivot Joint -- a low-friction spherical joint that allows for 30 degrees of articulation. The Alu-Max® Pivot Joint is comprised of two Delrin® races and a lightweight hard anodized, 7075-T6 aerospace grade aluminum spherical ball. The sway bar mounting holes allow for the installation of any stock or aftermarket sway bar that mounts in the factory location. A military spec black anodizing is applied to the entire superstructure and the arm is finished off with a white PST and Catapult® logo. Get the ultimate trailing arm for the street, strip, or track -- order today! Be sure to pick up a set of matching Catapult® Adjustable Upper Trailing Arms and Frame Reinforcement Braces to complete the package. Our upper trailing arms feature a bulletproof steel construction and a low-friction Alu-Max® Pivot Joint, and can even be adjusted on the vehicle to change the pinion angle - crucial to lowering your 60 foot times, increasing traction, and reducing wheel hop! The Frame Reinforcement Braces triangulate the upper and lower trailing arm mounts for added strength and driving performance. These braces are pre-bent to contour to the floor of the vehicle, allowing for installation without modification.

homemade press , Pressing in control arm bushings
Homemade Hydraulic shop press with 20 ton jack. Pressing in energy suspension bushings and progress spherical bearings on honda civic lower control arms. 2x2" square steel 1/4" thick. 3/16 square tube works great too. The outside dimensions are about 21" tall x 18" wide. updates below. Update added thick top plates and a base. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5KcTr4bQs - The most difficult part in making this frame with single top and bottom tube is you have to make sure the top and bottom square tubes is absolutely parallel to each other. Not only from side to side but from front and back. This is a little difficult , if you are welding , make tacks then check and adjust if necessary. If the tubes is not parallel then the part will try to come out when the force is applied. This is why the single top tube is not so great idea or if you look at a real press it has 2 tubes at the base where the part sits. - If all you have is 1/16 thick tube it will work with most bushings but you need to protect the top tube with a plate(i write about that below) - If you make this , try to protect the top bar by using a plate, you can see I have the black plate tied to the top tube , if you do not use a thick plate here to spread the load you can easily damage the top bar, if you look at the orange frame in the background you can see how that one is damaged. If you are pressing in some soft or easy bushings then you do not need that part but if you are pressing in something difficult that requires a lot of force then use something to protect the top. Wood press - there is a video on youtube about a wood press pressing in a wheel bearing it is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krbrm1bN-Mg I tried wood to press out control arm bushings but they were so tight and the whole frame flexed so it did not work for me but maybe you can make it work.
