    A friend Gave me these.
    Does any one know any thing about the manufacture or are they home made?

    A coworker of mine started his own business, Hackers Paradise, and he specializes in lowering cars and trucks. He has lowered a bunch of non-mainstream cars by stepping the OEM control arms.

    If drop spindles are available he typically uses them, they are the better option.

    Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with homemade... as long as it's a good design and well implemented.

    Thank you They Look very well made. I will try to clean them up And post some better pictures. And Yes Home made are Some times Better than Factory, or aftermarket Like my Panel Truck! :D

    As for inspection of the modifciations, might I suggest you go to a local welding supply shop and ask for dye check materials. You'll need a spray can of cleaner, a can of penetrant and a can of developer. It's easy to use and it's great at detecting cracks. Here's a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpU5JyhNVgQ
