Hmmm, Ho-made? Nice work. Now if I can just correctly plot the dimensions of the picture to scale, convert to CAD and hit the scan button.

Workmanship looks good on your buddies LA's, but I'd be a little leary about the way the arm is bolted to the cross member. If you notice on the factory lower arm mount, two bolts at the rear wasn't good enough so the thru-bolt does most of the work. This is even considering that the factory arms have the help of upper arms to share the load.

Your buddies design has a single point of failure at the attachment point so it should be mucho beefy.

Heavier material + better attachment method = peace of mind.

Did you purchase the threaded female tube at the Johnny joint end? If so where did you get it?
