Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone around here would be willing to help me narrow my balljoint beam, install adjusters, etc. I unfortunately do not know how to weld (although I would like to learn). I also dont want to pay the ridiculous prices that narrowed beams are sold for online, when it is such a straight forward job, minus the welding haha.

Let me know if you can help and we can set something up.

Thanks,
Kurtis

Straight being the key word. I went down that road. Welding in adjusters is one thing. Narrowing a beam is another. Without the appropriate jig, the job quickly turns into a nightmare. That is if you want it straight and not have excessive tire wear. The tooling for a jig far out weighs the cost of a narrowed beam.

I have ran 3 different narrowed beams. The Puma beams CB sells are my favorite if they are narrowed enough for you (2")

Just my 2 cents. Bug-O is coming up. Might find a good deal there if you arrive early...
