are you using those adjuster on all the wishbones? its just you might find the pitch Isnt fine enough when you come to doing your alignment, I'm using fine thread rose joints (1/2" unf i belive) and its amazing how much half a turn affects things

Thanks but bit late for that now have bought the threaded tubes for them already. Sure it will give me something to do remaking them in the future when ever if finish 😃

Wishbones are easy and fun, I don't get why people are making a fuss out of them. I found a ditch, and the front wishbone has buckled in the middle of the tube. My crappy amateur welds held fine. Getting the plate lasered and bent took more time than making the replacement wishbone. I had some spare bush tubes and a suspension bracket. I didn't make a full jig, just a 25x25 tube tacked onto a 3 mm sheet, with the bush tubes clamped onto it. The wishbone plate just sat on 10 mm spacers (M12 nuts probably) above the centreline marked on the jig plate.
