Just replied. If you have any questions let me know, I have my phone number in the email.
You mentioned you have a 1965 Rambler, I wanted to let you know on the forum that If you have a 1964 thru mid-year 1966 the lower ball joint is smaller, so you will need to pick up some 1970 or later lower ball joints and re-dril one of the holes. Several customers have done this with no real complications.

Check out this awesome Rambler!

Thanks Al, looking forward to another Road America AutoX next month again.

No Web-site yet, Please contact me at Dairylandfab@tds.net and we can cover any questions you may have.
Al, I'll have your kit ready this month ;) and I'll have a few extra kits ready to ship by next October.
Quick note that my stash of 1970 and later steering knuckles is getting low.

No website. Mike is a stand up Guy, makes a great product. I meet him at Road America saw his car in action and even got quick ride in it. I have my set on order. It may take some time to get them, but we don't own a late model Mustang. Small market, but we own AMCs not just another brand X. 

My 2 cents for the day.

I just need the lower Control arm and strut rod, those are both different from the early (Pre-70) parts. Just one side would do. I have piles of pre-70 parts, but no later stuff.
No rush either, First I'll need to get the fixture built around what I have.

Are you looking for lower control arms/strut rods/strut rod brackets? Both sides? - JJ

Well I'll be ordering some material to finally begin on the lower control arm/strut rod designs (Stage 2), FINALLY.

If anyone has a lower control arm and strut rod assembly for a 1970 or later AMX/Javelin/Gremlin/Spirit laying around I would like to work out a way to get it. please shoot me an email at dairylandfab@tds.net.
I want the new lower control arm design to fit both the pre-1970 cars, and later cars as well.

Also be aware I've had to raise the price a bit to $925 for the upper control arm Stage 1 kit.

Your assessment of cost is valid, the most expensive part about setting up a rebuilt trunnion comes in if you desire a lower ride-height. I'm no longer sure what the cost is for custom coil springs, but when I purchased my springs it was around $400. I could be wrong, that was probably 10 years ago.

The issues that I struggled with, which brought about the kit were many, including; limited tire size, limited caster capability, adjustments in shock damping, adjustable ride height, and that's before I measured the suspension geometry which was not so good.

I pulled apart my stock front suspension to fix a squeaky, tight poly bushing in the front suspension and a worn out bearing, and couldn't get myself to put the stock stuff back on it.
