Re: global west A arm with aftermarket subframe
I have his upper A arms and they look great.
I've met him at SEMA and he's run each part past an engineer to verify strength. The idea of using stock A arms or tubular aftermarket is pretty cool, a guy could upgrade to new sub with rack and pinion and use his current tubular A arms. There's no telling when it will be available, and I am allways concerned that torsional strength is part of the design goal. Some subs are not as good as stock in torsional rigidity. This is even more critical when you stiffen the suspension over stock levels.
Buy the June 2007 issue of HOT ROD. They have a feature on a whole bunch of first gen Subframes!
Of the ones I've seen in person, I like the Detroit Speed, and the Art Morrison.
I've heard good things about the 21'st Century sub too.
I think if you go with any of the Corvette aluminum spindle subs, you will need to use pretty large diameter wheels to clear the spindle and brakes. I don't know if you could use 17" wheels on them.
