I posted about the Jamar micro stub kit. It was the best deal I could find on a complete kit.

Here it is.
Detail Page

The one they are selling doesn't quite look like the pictures though. I actually prefer the updated version though. I put it into solidworks when I got them here. (everything except for the calipers) It is listed in the file library if you need it. This is what they will look like when you get em.

Jamar Microstubs


Here is a pic. The trailing arm pieces that I have them mounted to is a plate that I drew and the angle cut tube is from Kartek. They call them balogna tubes and the one I got was the version that they make for the chassis builder "Alumacraft". They were $45 for the pair. I like using these because they help protect the CV's I attached the DXF for the plate that weld onto the bologna tube to mount the microstub kit to I can give it to you. I integrated the caliper mount into that piece. It is 3/8" thick plate. It is the same diameter as the tube so it mates up easy. The caliper holes are undersized so you can tap them for the bolts to make assembly easy. You can give the DXF to your laser cutter or waterjet cutter and they can cut them for you. I recommend these guys though. Really good prices. GK Machine, Inc. - Donald, OR I think you will want to talk to Mike or Miguel.

Is it just me, or does that filedropper require you to create an account before downloading?

Have you used GK recently? I heard they jacked their prices up high when the contact was replaced.

I did get a quote from them the other day and the prices were good.

I would rather host the files I have that are too big here on MB but it won't let me upload past a certain point. If anyone knows a better place to put them, I will.

Mike is no longer doing the laser stuff. I got Shawn last time and he was very helpful. Their prices are still far below what they want locally, so it is a no brainer for me.

Yeah, I made my own trailing arms but they are kind of specific to the design so it's unlikely that they would work for you . I have pivot angle built into the rear transom on my car which most cars don't so that could be an issue. But, you could simply build your arms from tube to match your particular chassis. You really want to have your parts perfect for your chassis to get optimum performance. For example, You want the trailing arm length to position the outer hub further back than your axle centerline on your carrier or FNR gearbox so that when your suspension cycles down it pulls it directly inline at full droop to get the maximum angle out of your CV's instead of wasting some of that angle with it running backward. This is so you can get the most travel out of your CV's. Also, depending on how much if any camber change you want, the angle needs to be built into the trailing arm mounting. This stuff is really vehicle specific so it's best to build to what you have and what you want.
