I'm new to the site and wanted to contribute something. Here are some front control arm skids i made from 1/4" steel. They are bolt on and protect the CA bushing and housing - which I view as a weak point for damage. The are bolted for ease of removal and use the OEM holes, no drilling.
Tools needed, Option 1: Orbital Grinder w/ Metal cutting disc, Metal saw or jigsaw w/ metal blade, Sanding block w/ 80grit, metal file, square, chalk/white grease-pen
Tools needed, Option 2: Replace grinder and saw with plasma cutter or torch.
First photo: uncut 4" outside dimension: 1/4" steel tube
Second: Cut out shape of skid
Third: Sanded, primed, painted
Fourth: Installed with Grade 8 bolt and washer.
Hit me up with any questions.
