I did this tonight to prove a point about the strength of these upper control arms. A couple of people on here in the past have questioned the strength of my welds. I wanted to press these in a way that it would test all of the welds. Pressing it from the side would only bend the tubes. The press initially got up to almost 15 tons before it started to collapse the tube like it should. Not one broken weld. Look how it bent that channel with the bolts running in the tubes welded to the edges. I guess that I have a new paper weight for my desk. Rant over, carry on.
