No you can not make a left work with a little grinding and welding! If someone was killed or badly hurt because of wrongly made part, esp something the had to do with steering or car was sold later with something like that, I would not want to be in your shoes. The angle of the axle is forged into the perch. To be sure, you need the right hand perch as seen from when sitting in the car?
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

Gee Mark the left perch will go in the right and the right perch will go in the left can you figure that one out! The lower hole in the perch is for the Radis rod and i still have the one on the rod on the bottom . Installing dual Radis rods that's why the 2 hole perches one at the top for the spring arm and one at the bottom for the radis rod will support the front keeping the front end straight and the radis rods are attached to the frame . I will check caster and camber will align front to rear check and that the car track right in a pervious post you ask why i needed used bearing and races. Two mock up the front hubs to accept disc brakes installing front and rear disc brakes so the only one i would kill would be me its been a life

I didn't ask why you needed bearings, in fact this is my only post and what I posted before you said what you were doing at the very end of the post;

If you can wait on the shipping, Rock Auto has some good prices. Depending on what warehouse they come out of, USPS shipping is running behind. Depending on what part of the country they are being shipped to, Snyder's and Lang's could be in the same boat, re shipping.

If this is for the mock up, making up a perch would be fine, if not my OP stands and as it is, you have people that might have the correct part.
