I am starting my 4" lift on 82 wagon. Ive been looking at how it all will work and I am worried about my power stearing pulley, it looks like it will hit radiator fan. Is this a common problem? If this helps, I attempted to to put in a block heater in the freeze plug but the heater stuck out to far and got in the way of the fan.

Does this sound like a problem? is it a problem? Any info would be awesome

if your motor is tilting like that then you need to also "lift" the rest of the mounts. you will need blocks at the 6 bolts that hold the radius rod plates/tranny crossmember in place to lower the back side of the motor trans combo. the entire drivelines should just drop straight down as the body is lifted up.....

I have power steering on my lifted wagon. 3.5" lift in the front. The pulley is nowhere near the radiator fan.....
