Lower control arm eccentric eliminator

Does someone have the diagram to make my own LCA eccentric eliminator plates?

Please and thank you.

Sorry, Just had mine out last weekend making adjustments, should've took some measurements. 2 holes in the plates and will give you 8 settings

can't you just take the bolt out and measure the saddle width and height ?

The best plate design is the one that Opentracker sells, with one set of holes in the center for plate #1. Each subsequent set of 4 plates will have the hole offset directly to the side 1/8". I'm not a fan of the plates that have 2 or 3 three holes per plate. Yes, the opentracker set does have two holes in the 4/5 plate, but it's not used as much as the #1 - #3 plates. Still, it's better than the other popular style that has 3 holes per plate. I would never trust my safety to such a swiss cheese arrangement. Safety is one area where I like to have a substantial degree of over-kill engineering.

For all the trouble it takes to make a set of plates, and get them right, for me it makes more sense to purchase a set already made. just my opinion

I used the open tracker ones that ZRay included in his cross member kit.
Very good quality.
I canít imagine the difficulty trying to reproduce something close.

Yes, someone does. A nice and satisfying afternoon DIY project for those who enjoy making things versus just throwing money at stuff.

I like to make stuff too, but at some point I have to decide whether it's worth a few hours of fabrication labor and materials to just save $70.

I used the same as noted above re Open Tracker but bought through Street or Track. I am guessing that OT makes the ones that SorT sells?

Yep

One thing great about getting older. A life in prison sentence is less of a deterrence
