What?

You want to c notch the front of the frame? Just trim your bumpstops or buy aftermarket pancake bumpstops.

Waste of time/money. Just get some drop beams.

Notching the frame isn't gonna do much for you, except allow your wheels to sit at a very awkward angle. If you really want to notch the front frame, you're gonna have to do something with your pivot brackets too, and very possibly alter the engine cradle or custom fab your own from scratch.

I don't really understand your accent. Notching the front would just be retarded, do a body drop if you have already bagged it and already have the beams.

What size wheels are you trying to lay out on? you should not have to notch the frame for anything less than an 18" wheel and low pro tires with DJM beams. You will need to trim the engine crossmember a little and notch for your tie rods, as well as slightly bend your drives side tie rod to clear the pitman arm. If you run a wheel larger than the 18 you will need to notch the frame for the Ibeams to travel up to. This is a custom fabricated job nothing is going to bolt in on an ibeamer.
