Is there any value in keeping the original upper and lower control arms off a 1973 Mustang? I recently replaced them along with the the rest of the front suspension. I planned on just scrapping them, but thought I would check with you guys first. Thanks.

What suspension system did you use?

Thanks guys. I wasn’t really thinking of making money on them as much as possibly a purist wanting them to recondition. They are original and much heavier duty than what I just replaced them with. I’ll probably just toss them. Thanks again for the input.

Has someone tried to do this upgrade with the LCAs in place? I don't think you could do the UCA.
it would be extremely difficult to do in place. You would have to remove sway bar and end links. Also I would be concerned about keeping the bushings cool enough while welding. I think you would actually save time by removing them to do this.
