The rear "shock hoops" look good too. Nice and clean.

Pulled it out of the garage for the first time on the rear 4 link and Coilovers to get some sun. And realized I messed up the upper shock mounts and made them too low so back in the garage for a couple more weeks.

Why ya decide to go with the same length upper and lowers? Keep the driveshaft alive at droop.

Cuz that's what worked the best with what I had and and I can carry one extra link and have a spare for the upper or lower. And yes I still have a little more room to droop. But I'm still going to limit it a little

What are the specs on the coil overs ...2.0 or 2.5 and length ?...It's too late for the rear I spent cash on putting another set of claytons coil buckets in to stretch it another 10 inches ,but the front needs some additional work to fit the 44's it's sitting on the way I want so may just coilover the front ,but don't want to dump too much cash into them as slow speed crawling does not get much out of them .

Looks good man. I'm almost done building the same rear suspension on my grand. Your axle and frame seperation look better than mine. What numbers did you end up with?
