Replacement Quigley torque arms

I'm going to get a set of replacement torque arms made in the next few weeks and wanted to see if anyone else was looking for a set. I'm going to go with one adjustable end and one fixed end. Both sides will be serviceable, so hopefully it will be the last set I'll ever need. Cost was quoted between 700 and 1000 depending on the type of ends used. I have a 2002 E-350 7.3 Quigley but I'm guessing the shop would still want pictures and measurements to make sure things fit properly.

Here is a link to the shop. Hazzard Fab.Worx — Custom Offroad Fabrication and Services

This sounds very interesting. Are you planning to copy the Quigley dimensions or go a little longer for more tire clearance? I have the same year van and just noticed a crack starting.

One end of each arm will be adjustable so you should be able to move the axle forward a bit if needed.

that quote is right in line with what ive been quoted here as well except the design we were planning on doing will have adjustable ends on both sides for easier/faster alignments (if possible). ive found that the easier you make it for the alignment people, the cheaper your custom alignments end up being. some places here charge out the ass if what theyre doing isn't in "the book".

its roughly 600 in parts from an online supplier that sells all the heims etc and buying the dom tubing locally. then just supplying my van to them for a couple of days.

do you know what size dom tubing and joints theyre planning on using?

How did you guys do with this?

How far were you able to go forward? 1-2 inches?

How did you handle the Track bar mount?

I am really wanting to do this.
