hey I'm sorry I was extremely busy these days..
this is how I did reinforcement

- I have fabricated those 2 metal plates (bought a long metal plates from the home depot) with a hole in them - just like in the olower control arm, those plates will go on top of arms in order to make that area strong


clean the arm and prepare it for TIG welding
TIG welding - is the only way - because it is stronger then MIG and you don't want to risk it at all - tig welding was for me like 25$ for both arms


this is how ford did reinforcement for svt and later model


this picture of the other member in finished stage


couldn't find my finished pictures but you can get the idea
metal plate that I have used was like 4-5 mm thick
