got some cds tube , and the weld inserts fitted tight, got it all tacked in place , as i may need to alter it, when the body comes, i have set it at 24" 3/8 from the center stand to the center of the drive shafts, , i have used the squareframe section behind the stand as a fixing point , but i intend to re-enforce this , with braces, when im sure it's all set up right













in this one the diff needs lifting up , as you can see two bricks are usedto lift the hubs somewhere near

that idea of yours worked fine , fixed that problem , i have lifted the top bar up with another peice of box section , plan to weld it up and re-enforce it when i take it back off , and the distance between top shock bar and bottom wishbone is around 13" or 13"1/2 ideal for the 416 progressive shocks that i ordered yesterday from america , guess that will take around 2-3 weeks to get here ,





this picture shows how i have lifted the bottom support bracket up 2" , i still plan on braceing it more for strenth

You wont be disappointed with 416 shocks,so much adjustment from compressor adjustment.Mine was abit twichy with 30lb pressure put 42 seemed much more stable only took seconds.

From placing order to arriving in UK mine took 7 days.
