Bent Griggs torque arm

I was under the car yesterday and i noticed the T/A did not look right. I got out my straight edge and it is bent quite a bit. I guess a new T/A is in my future so the question is... Can i mix my suspension parts. Everything now is from Griggs. Pictures to follow tonight.

Where is the arm bent? Perhaps it can be strighten or repained.
Or maybe a new can be made just stronger?

Since you have one already just have a fabricator copy it but just make it stronger?

According to Griggs site this is the standard duty arm. I am sure i should have been running the HD one with a turbocharged 351 and sticky 315 rears. I am not blaming the product. I killed it on my own. Since i heard Griggs is no longer can i use a MM T/A with my Griggs suspension.

I have Griggs front suspension and a Griggs panhard bar and a MM TA. Works fine. The You might have to modify your H-X pipe because the front TA is set back a little.

You could buy the Griggs torque arm off that dude in this forum that's selling the stolen Mustang. It's setup for road course, but he wants to make it loosey goosey floppy drag car so he's selling all the good stuff from it.

That's a good question, I'm in the same boat, I can add attachements to a post in any other section on the site and I can do anything else but add attachements in this section but after several years and nearly 300 posts, still unable to add attachments in the road racing/auto x forum.

I'm selling my Griggs severe duty torque arm, brand new as is from Griggs. I bolted it up to my build, but its not done so its never been used. Pm me for a great deal! Buy from me, no lead time, which u would have from Griggs now.
