Default 850R rusted delta arm anchor points.

i have some broken anchor points. Where the bolts come down outa the chasis and bolt in to the end links are completely gone. Im going to attempt to patch this with some new steel plates. Anyone ever tried this.

yes, I also needed to have some welding done on that exact spot on my 850. I had it done at an auto restoration shop who charged me 800 for welding both sides and installing the new bushing.

great. also do both sides - if one side is weak, the other won't be far behind.

Cut bushing in half. Center was siezed on dowel. Cut the center piece out in about 30 pieces with the dowel spinning around.


Cut into subfloor under back seat and weld in top of dowel.
