Alignment Questions/Ball Joint Failure
I am on the verge of installing a disc brake kit in my non power brake '62 and thinking about lowering the front. I'm getting mixed messages about the use of the stock A arms vs. tubular. If I stay with the stock arms am I going to run into alignment issues using a 2" spindle (or 2" lowering springs)? Some say it's no problem others say you'll never get it into proper alignment.
Another option is to simply use spring clamps which I believe will give me between a 1" and 1.5" drop which is fine too. I've heard without changing the A arms it will cause early failure of the upper ball joints. Any thoughts appreciated. Also, if I were to do the tubular arms, do you need to do both upper and lower or could I get by with just the uppers and would that give me the desired result? This car will never see a lot of mileage if that has any impact on your thoughts. Thanks in advance for the advice! Bob
