That is why so many chassis builders are switching to metric frames. The "big" frames are hard to find and the parts are expensive. I just got my first metric and I was amazed at how cheap parts are. Steering boxes for $ 35, lowers for $ 25 each, spindles for $ 25.00 each...increadible.

Yeah, stubs and a-frames are at a premium anymore. I guess I'm lucky. I have a chevelle stubbed mod, a bare frame in waiting, a '99 GRT bare chassis(bent metric), (2) Nova lowers, and (2) spare Pinto spindles. I won't complain till I gotta run metric!

Alot of it depends on ,what you ask for,and who its built for.
The former DW house car im selling on the classifieds page was something a little differant. Im not a chassis guru,or a big R&D guy. Everyone in racing is looking for an advantage. Lets just say my local DW dealer and I learned a whole lot! Unfortunately I had to pay$$$ for the info.

I know there are stubs still out there but the supply gets shorter every year.

As far as lower control arms, yes the factory ones are getting expensive and harder to find but there is a place making reproductions and i believe they are even a little stronger.

Its too bad somebody cant find the original forming dies for the chevelle frames and start making repros just for race cars....wouldnt that be nice.

The pitman arms are still available through the Chevrolet dealer.
