I just can't seem to add text to my last post. I have no idea why. So I'll try adding this brief comment on the photos above..

Thanks everyone!

 

Progress is being made. I thought I’d take the time to show some of the details as I go along. Here’s how I slammed it. The photos show the offset spindles at the front. In addition I shaved the front crossmember to raise the lower A-arm bracket for adequate ground clearance. Not shown, but I also cut the posts on the kit’s A-arm bracket which stand in for the coil springs, effectively “cutting the coils”. At the rear I used simple lowering blocks, trimmed the rear spring shackles, C’d the frame rails and relieved the undercarriage to provide clearance for the differential. Since my last post I removed about .04 inches from the lowering blocks, raising the rear about 1 scale inch. Also, the chassis tends to slip up into the trunk area at the rear so I glued in a locating block to firmly locate it in the proper position.

I'm having trouble posting my latest update to this thread. So this is a test to see if typing fresh text works. I seem to be able to post everywhere else...
