    It's all relative. Gussets are cheap in comparison to the rest of the stuff.
    More importantly it's cheap insurance compared to fixing a bent frame or fucked spindles. Even if you paid retail for off the shelf gussets
    Spindle Guessets: $60
    Coil Bucket Gussets: $90
    Camber Tab Gussets: $85
    Frame Plates: $100

    Nice details guys!!!

    Lets see if we can be a little more specific on the track width. Standard specs on the kits + over numbers will still vary the physical track width with wheel and tire set-up.

    I measured mine from the edge of the tread..
