well i got the retainers off had to cut the bolts here are come pics so far [IMG][/IMG] the two middle tabs have to be cut off in order to get the newer a arms in place and spacers will have to be mad im going to weld the spacers in place because with removing the two inner tabs it is going to make the brackets weaker that way it will reinforce the outer brackets.

The 93 definitely won't be a direct swap. With the correct chassis to start with it's pretty straightforward tho. Hopefully you won't end up with any weird camber issues.
