You can actually cut the bottom inch out of that pumpkin and still clear the diff ring gear.It equates to about 2 tire sizes of clearance.

playin with springs, this is the fun part.

 

 

maybe use the stock springs at a angle, looks like they have 5-1/2" travel and with the rear chopped off will be to stiff, so at a angle the travel will be greater , still in the idea fase, maybe chop off them leaf springs  and they will act as forward links with flex, will need a ladderbar or something to prevent the rearend from

 twisting and maybe a panhard bar, will see as this develops

I like it all.  But I'm wondering if your 3rd pivot/brace shown here might interfere with the steering rack?  Might need to make that brace arc shaped to fit over the inner tierods.

looks like the front will end up with about a 10-11 inch lift to level it out

been 1 week on this so far, happy with the progress and the results, hope to have it usable within a couple weeks, its been awhile since I went out wheelin, it was last winter up in the snow last time I was out, I thought I had a set of Impreza FWD axles but Ive misplaced them in my shop somewhere, Ill need them when I put the dualrange in,  Ill set up the rear and then build the front to match, looks like  at least a 10" lift , the rear will get the hatch put back on shortened a bunch

Looks nice with that axle back there.  (nver thought I'd say that about a subaru)  at any rate will be a fun ride

 

I wonder about axle wrap and side slip.

 

Any triangulation in the works?

With that in mind why run the leaf springs at all and instead set up a 3 link?Just use the struts you have already to suspend it.
