I am going nuts with this. A couple of thoughts I had is that when I mounted the body to the frame, maybe I didnt have the body back far enough on the frame, or, did I mount the radiator support wrong (which holds the fenders also) thus causing improper height of the fenders in the front of the car.

If anyone can send me a picture of the proper way to install the bushings on the radiator support, that woudl be a great start to eliminate that first.

Thanks for any input,

sounds like a radiator support or ft bushing problem. is it a repop support? they dont fit right.
