-1 Upper Control Arm
-1 Lower Control Arm
-1 Lower Ball Joint
-1 Duro

Probably -1 axle
Maybe 1 damaged shock

Dunno past that yet it is dark and it was hard enough to get it on the trailer so I didn't spend much time assessing damage. Glad I didn't come with just the Wildcat, needed to winch it up on the trailer.

Then I shouldn't take pics and it will have never happened. Hit a 3 foot deep about 2 foot across chasm caused by runoff, was only going about 60 mph at the time.

It looks something like this:

Not so good.jpg

And yes hxloco you are very right, right after it happened I was thinking without all that suspension this would have been a big time disaster. Cut hard and hit it at an angle on the drivers front BAM flew up slightly hit the ground on the other side and came to a stop.

Oh well.

Hmmm. Yep. It happened. Sorry to see it. Guess its a good thing that those are the things that fail since they can just be replaced.

I hope so too. It depends on parts availability of course.

By the way, it doesn't drive near as good after you do this.

:cool:

Sorry TX, I was hoping I could serve as a warning to everyone else. Parts availability is not good my friend. Find a fab shop or a good friend like I did.

And holy shit, that looks almost identical, wow...

Hmmmmm, note to self, watch out for 3 ft chasm's and other "red" related obstacles.

Any idea what the repair bill will be on that??

I don't think it will be long before one of the fab guys here builds a jig and starts producing some high quality (tig welded 4130) arms...Johnny?
We do that for our vintage Formula Fords simple due to the fact there no longer made.
