Thought that I should close out this portion of the build. I finished about 3 weeks ago, at least everything related to the Firebird sub frame addition to my truck. Drives like a dream now and the front bumper is now about 8 inches off the ground. I haven't had any problems so far with rubbing the ground. Truck runs really cool with the aluminum radiator and power steering and brakes work great. EZ wiring harness was anything but. Some things are just not as clear as they could have been described in the instructions. Next I will replace the rusty panel, just a few spots. I then am going to scarf on a wrap around window that I have had for some time. Just want all that done by the end of summer. All in all it was a ton of work to install the sub frame. Mostly because I changed so many related things at the same time.
Radiator came, but of course it would not just drop in. I ended up cutting off the side mounting flanges which allowed me to drop the radiator down to within 1/2" of the front sway bar and center everything out. I used the pieces I cut off to fabricate new mounting plates and just bent and formed them to fit. They are attached with rubber washers between. I also hooked up the new CCP shifter linkage to the CCP steering column. Down to 3 more major tasks. Need new brake lines and hoses, need the exhaust re fabricated, and need to wire up the column and front lights.
