good news and bad news....the good : I now have about 6'' of axle clearance, where before I had only 3'' and the car still has the right look , or 'stance'.....Bad news, the bottom bolt for the shock hits the brake drum, also, the other issue is, the shocks are just about bottomed out when the car is at rest ! This, I assume, was part of my problem from the beginning ! So, I will have to make lower shock mounts narrower, to clear the drums, (hope I didn't warp the drums !) Then determin what shocks to get..... I wonder if I can get about a 15'' shock(at rest ) , with loops on both ends, and NOT gas charged ??????? there was a web site or thread somewhere...............
