well we're just gonna build the shockwave mounts and what not around the C4 stuff we got, but for the other C10 frame just threw a jig together and made the arms for those, that one was fairly simple, ART is your best bet for buying em though. If your needing a set feel free to get ahold of me , i'll help ya out

I might try changing the C4 irs setup around a little bit and try to do an A arm setup. The thing that's going to be the most trouble will be the hub carriers. I'll have to machine up a custom set. I've never see something like that done with a C4.

The one we're using converts the suspension over to C4 components. It will also convert your PS to R&P which is also a nice. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?t=201898LaterJr
