Front suspension

Thanks I have an overload of photos. I mainly use them to study before I make another cut. I would like a slightly aggressive stance not to low, the wheels have to be min 16" because of the Vette calipers so 16x8 all around, I want to be able to rotate them. I plan to drive this truck alot. As far as level and square look at the photos. I welded piece of angle to the frame just in front of the cab and triangulated and squared it to the frame. Then cut just the top and bottom of the frame then spread the frame. Now all you need to do is set the frame at your ride height and set the cross member level set wheel base and your there. Sounds easy but is a little tricky. If you want to know more details let me know if I can help. But I am taking this one step at a time I have'nt seen it done this way before so don't have much help.
