I haven't been on the forum for quite a while and do wish you all well. I would like to thank all of you who have purchased replacement rear trailing arms from me in the past. I realize that there are still customers out there for this product but I am at a bit of a cross roads. I would like to continue but over the last 4 years the cost for machining and waterjet services as well as steel have gone up and my price hasn't changed.
I would like to increase my price to $420 from $385 but would also have them powder coated. I am about to start making the next batch and would like some input before going forward.
Hello Dan I hope you continue providing trailing arms. I plan to order a pair later this year
I have them on my own 63. Such an improvement. The pinion angle vibration is gone. I can feel the difference in the ride quality. It took some of the boat sway away and gave an improved ride.
I also have the inserts that go into the stock trailing arm, for those who want the stock look when looking underneath. I was gong to install them on my other 63, but that car was sold.
My 2 cents; worth the time and money.
Thanks for the input. I am looking at having the machine shop take over the complete manufacturing process from start to finish. It is getting to be a bit of a chore as I have had a few health issues lately and off loading the manufacturing and powder coating will take a burden off me. I don't plan on shuffling off any time soon but if I did, I would like to leave something that my daughters could manage and keep the product alive.
