They're diagonal links with heim joints at the upper ends. They keep the horizontal control arms from having to rely on the sway bar to control caster, like a radius arm would.

They are only tacked on in the pics. I've made the pieces to box the whole arms in with, top and bottom. I'll weld them at work tomorrow.

Sure could have saved a bunch of time welding that 911 front end I have in place.

Looks good Joe, gonna have to come and see it soon.

A pre-964 front end is less high tech than a Mc Pherson 1303 front end

The extra control arms with heim joints look a lot like a set-up I saw many years ago on a german Kaefercup car..

Looks very good!

PS: Jurgen, did you ever come to informing about shipping costs of the 912E tach we talked about?

It looks great, I love that crossmember, looks more professinal than mine, 3 peices of flat bar, and a peice of square tubing.

Great looking pictures too, I love to see projects in progress. Keep up the good work!

If you copy it, I won't mind. No patents on anything. I just didn't want the caster changing as the suspension jounces, or if I hit the brakes hard and turn in. This way, the horizontal control arms track straight up and down, and not in an arch. Plus, with this geometry I can actually ADJUST caster wiff the heim joints.

The 2 piece shiftrod is the big thing. I wanted to make the 901 shift right in my Bug. I got two 1" OD universal joints, one 12" behind the shifter, and one at the selector shaft on the gearbag, to work with the mis-alignment of the selector shaft and the base of the shifter. Everything else is pre-72 911 stuff.

It shifts SO SMOOOOOTH!!!

Thanks for the kind words fellas, I'll keep yall updated and try not to be such a stranger 'round here anymore.

So let me get this straight, Yeti, your using 2 universal joints instead of welding on length and bending a Z into it. That sounds a lot like the what VW did with the steering linkage on the '71-'74 supers. I'll considering that for my setup.

Yep. That's what I did. Here's a link...

That's where I got the joints. P/N A5Q 8-D516.

Thats exactly what I am working on .. I've got the shift rod welded up with the U-Joints and used a Bug shift rod shortening kit on one end of the shift rod for adjustability. By the angles involved, I don't see how putting a Z bend in the rod would work, let alone shift smoothly ... the 2 u-joints are definately the way to go.

Project looks great !
