    More fun then I deserve....

    OK Great .That makes me feel better. I thought I was running into added work due to the wrong size lift. It sure looks high. I had to have extended brake lines for the front made.. Im sure Ill have to do the same for the rear... Now that Im putting the rear springs on Im finding the parking brake cabeles are in the way... Im not sure if they go over or under the springs...I looked up past post and It seems others that ran into this problem added a new bracket and rerouted the cables..or just removed it... The exhaust hits the rear hanger...its a crappy system anyway.....The best part of all it looks like by the angle of the drive lines Im going to need to made or buy a transfer case drop and extend the drive lines ....I have had several classic and custom hotrods but this is my first FWD and boy what fun Ive been missing.. this is turning into more fun then anyone ,, let alone I deserve...

    Drop the case

    To drop the case should I make a braket or buy a kit? What happens to the engine mounts when you do this ? just let them twist?? Is it a bad thing to shim the rear diff.? Thanks
