Hey Ben, dropping the car that much creates extra work, as I found!! My beam is mounted at stock height, I also cut the heater channels off which dropped the body almost 2" and with drop spindles I had to raise the adjusters on the beam all the way up for the front tyres not to touch the guards and have the nose about 4" or so off the ground.

Back of the car was more headaches, with the trans raised 4" and the body drop, the IDA's hit the body in a big way so all the sheetmetal under the rear window had to go!!

I keep creating more work for myself like this, probably why my build is taking so long... :fakesniff: Stick with it guys, looking good!
