Need measurements.

I believe I have found a ' cheat ' of sorts for something but I need some measurements.

What I need is for someone with a 2wd XLT to take a measurement of their upper control arm covering the distance between the bushings.



If possible, also measure the distance of the upper bushing itself between the 2 connecting plates.

Something like that.

I remember matching the XLT uppers ScottyG ( gaybriel ) gave me with the Edge ones I had.. and I ( cant remember ) if they were the same distance. I went to grab one of his old control arms BUT.. it was bent and not ' straight ' enough for an accurate measurement.

The balljoint pin is the same ( perfect fit ).

If I can find my measuring tape I'll get it for you.
