    Yes this is at ride height. D60, with NW Fab crossover, 52" in Springs and Big Block.....

    Is the best way to fix this to buy a new oil pan? Any other thoughts?

    Looks like a different pan will solve that issue. That pan looks like about a 6 quart pan from a car.

    So I have been shopping for a new oil pan. I don't want to go to new steering. Here are two more views for any other ideas...

    If you can't find a pan that will work for you you can always have someone notch that pan to give you more clearance. Shouldn't be hard to do and there is nothing that far up front to worry about either.
