    Default Super Seven Sportscar - new A-Arm availability / fabricator recommendation

    Have a 1984 George Fejer Super Seven and am going to replace all upper and lower control arms. Had the left/front lower fail where a weld for the swaybar bracket appears to have burnt through.

    Anyone able to to offer suggestion for ready-built arms or fabrication?

    Approximate dimmensions as follows
    UPPER width:7.5 x length:8
    LOWER width:9 x length:12

    I would think that there are any number of talented fabricator/welders in Seattle. It shouldn't be too hard to make a new one, since you have the original for a pattern.

    Graham and Randall - thanks for the advice. Have recommendations for a couple local shops - Wicked Fabrication and Godspeed Fab - but thought if this is a pattern part that someone has the jigs for, nation-wide purchase would be easy. Kinetic looks like a neat product and will reach out to Jack in the morning.

    If anyone else has a suggestion or if an Admin can move this a better forum category, please do so.

    Thanks again.

    I would build the next set with thicker wall tubing. Also, I would build a “jig” so that if there is ever an unfortunate situation that arises, they can easily be reproduced.

    The cool thing about that Kinetic arms is you don't need a jib, you just need to know the lengths. Highly adjustable so your can build to any numbers you want.
