what is up with this?
That's not the final location for that link, is it?
Tig, my respect to your weld skills but I see a major problem in your susp. A-arms construction. Just imagine a bit. If you extend one or even both of the A-arm rod end bolts ( for camber/castor change) you're actually changing the angle at the ball joint. Since both arms are welded to ball joint, this angle is fixed and there is no compensation. Think of it like a triangle. When you change one of the arms you have to change the angles of the triangle as well to compensate. In your case one of the angles is fixed so there will be a lot of tension in that point.
Damn! My English is awful.

Thats a very good point ^ With that design you can't adjust the rod ends at all really, as the angle of the tubes is fixed, so doesn't allow the shape of the A to change.
You need something like this:
where the arms can change angle relative to each other
yup. I have been looking at that as well. I am going to see where I come out at when im closer to done and if I have to change the upper I will do so. Because the bottom is adjustable in the same manner as the top it is fully adjustable (not very easily though).
