Looks great...don't mean to mom you, but you kids need to make sure you have properly placed jack stands under that car before you slide your arm and torso under the rear drum. If the stands are under there somewhere I can't see, then please disregard this message...and cool dog.

Let's just say I got ALOT of trimming to do..... :eek: Could I go with 3" blocks in the front to get it level and not have to drop the x-members ?

No..... BUT! You can extend your radius rods 1.25" to 1.5", this will help with clearance at the rear of the fender while turning. Also, look into folding the front of the fender up. I did that on my big wagon and it helped tons....

I happen to have some extra radius rods on the shelf. I'll see if I still have any of the right tubing to make a set.....

Yeah I was just starting to think about that... And If you could do that for me man that would be awesome ! I don't have much experience with welding, just some oxyacetylene . So I couldn't do it myself lol

And extending my radius rods isn't gonna make the tires stick out will it ? It just moves the ball joint forward not out ?

Correct.

You will have to enlarge one of the two holes that bolt the rod to the control arm. But that's no biggie.
