Laser Cut Front Lower Outer Suspension Brackets

Post by freakynami » 18 Jun 2016, 01:31

As mentioned a long time ago, there was some confusion over quantity for a laser cutting run, hence some additional sets of brackets are available.

The brackets in question are for the front, lower, outer joint, where the Miata lower ball joint mounts to the wishbone.

The brackets are from my CAD, which was based on the book design, but does vary slightly:
- I've "aimed" the wishbones to meet the bearing mount box at the corners, rather than almost touching each other on the rear face
- The gussets only go approximately 2.5" - 3.0" along the wishbones, rather than the 4" - 4.5" specified (don't know why I did this)
- The side plates (tab C), I've made slightly deeper to clear the tip of the ball joint where the vertical bolt screws through, Kurt had to slightly relieve this, so I've added 0.150" more length (dim 0.96" is now 1.10" for fig 24.19)

The gusset plates are intended to be trimmed on installation by approx. 0.55", once the wishbones are tacked on, align the gusset with the centre of these and trim to match the back of the box.
The gusset closure plate is flat, will need to be curved to match the gussets.
The set doesn't include the little weld on washers.
The plates are all 3.0mm thick mild steel, laser cut. There are burrs from the lead-in/out but the cuts are pretty clean.
One set is enough to do both sides, with no spares.

What you will get:

Packaged, they will be 15cm x 11cm x 7cm (approx) and 1.2Kg.

Price:
AU$50 / US$37 / GPB26

Shipping estimates (pm with address for actual):
Sydney AU$14
USA AU$45 / US$33
United Kingdom AU$48 / GBP25

These are a quick check on Australia Post - happy to drop off somewhere if you arrange your own courier service. I am in Hope Valley, South Australia 5090.

Personally, I think the shipping is a killer, but if you feel that these parts could be of benefit and the price works for you, then please contact me and I'll send a set your way.

Oooh, a gift from Oz just arrived... :)

The parts are really very nice. Lovely clean cuts and I know it would take me a long time to produce something nowhere near as tidy or accurate.

Excellent!

(PM on the way)

Cheers

They certainly are, I need to get over to the shed and see how many sets are left! I should be able to grab a set and get it in the mail within the next week.
Yep, PayPal is fine, I'll PM you my details.
