    lol yes i tried that, ended up bending the arm, they didn't have the spring so i modified it and that possibly sabatoged it for me. i'm going to try and bend it back

    Would a tensioner off of a ford or chevy work? Theyre tough as nails and could be found on the cheap at a junk yard. Theres a 100 different kinds out there.......if a smaller one is needed look at some older fwd cars.
