I bought my frame finished in chassis paint. It also had the front steering components replaced. That saved me a lot of work.

Well when I was rolling it in and out to clean the garage, the tires were rubbing at full lock.

Compared them to my 78 donor car, their on the wrong sides.

I'm gonna have to tear it apart! Just my luck!

Looks like you're gonna get some practice at swapping them.

There is no engine or front clip on the car. Guess I'm shopping for a spring compressor!

When I bought it, the original springs we're put back in. Wasn't sure how I felt about that. Just figured I'd wait til I decide on an engine then go from there.

Since has to come apart, I'm putting new springs in.

I'm in the process of switching my arms. Is the bar that the arms attach to side sensitive? I don't see any markings on them. Wondering if the arms are on wrong, if those bars might be wrong?

The control arm shafts are universal per side, only the offset type have a specific way of going on the car & its marked on which side faces outboard. I'll have to take a look at mine when I head back out to the garage to see how they sit.
