Guys, I bought the cast iron ford towers today and did a test fit before attempting to grind off the rivets. I'm very glad I did a test fit because the shock mounting stud at top of the towers were hitting the a/c evaporator box (or whatever that a/c thing is called) on passenger side and hitting the steering shaft on drivers side. I did a search on this topic and all I'm getting are the dreaded red x's.... Most of the threads are old.... I see BadDog did them but he didn't have the a/c in and his pics only show passenger side. I'd love to ditch my a/c for an aftermarket one to fit inside the cab but I'm gonna have to make do with my stock one for the time being. So... anybody else got the cast iron ford towers installed while a/c is still in the truck? And how are you guys getting the towers to fit without hitting the steering shaft? Pics will be good.
