No plan changes this time (too late for that, and my buddy wants his shop back so it can't sit here long )

Front springs were built intending on the weight of a 350 for an engine, so they are probably a bit too stiff for the 4 cyl. We'll just have to see once it is up and running. They are a hybrid rear pack that moves the axle 2" forward of stock, and I moved the fornt hanger hole about 1" forward as well. Early measuring (see the blue strap) looks like the steering box is gonna have to go forward 1-2" to make room for everything.

I traded my 42's this weekend for some 38.5x16 TSL's - I just did not want to deal with trying to turn the 42's with 4.88's and a 4 cylinder, or trying to cut that much metal to get them to fit.

I have a sky dual case crossmember waiting to go on it when the time comes to do the dual cases.

More pics this week as the parts come in that are needed
