Ok guys I love it when a plans works out.I moved the whole subframe 3/16 in and it worked out great.I only have one problem and it was there before I moved the subframe. When I sat the car on jack stands #1 in the pic all the sheet metal seemed to fit better,when I say better I mean there seems to be no tension in the sheet metal.For some reason there is pressure on the radiator support when I sat the car on stand #2.Put it back on stand #1 problem goes away.I have new bushings and all are in the right spots and yes I put the factory spacer back in.What do you guys think about putting another spacer / washer in the middle to take away the tension.

Before I moved the subframe the pass fender hit the bumper now its the same on both sides

The radiator support holes lines up better.

I was even able to pull my diagonals and all came out fine.I still don't understand that but I'm glad it worked out.

This is how I keep everything inline.
