it'll probably loose and inch cause the front driveshaft angle will be nasty even with the double cardon joint.


but back to your question these until april and 35"s after

What was it crumpling on, was your running a reg 4link or a double triangulated 4link? Are you planing coils or coilovers?

Engine mount wow thats a little odd dont think Ive seen that before. Yeah wasnt sure if you was going to run coil over looked like the front axle had been shaved clean. Look forward to the build though good luck.

Very nice looking, looks like he was only running a parallel 4 link, might want to invest in some limiting straps lol
