Original measurements from bottom of fender and mud guard to ground compared to today is about 2" drop in front and 2 1/2" in rear. Now I got the rears installed last night and lowered the back off the stands so she had self weight on the wheels for about a day now. That may account for the extra drop, I'll keep an eye on it.

Of course the garage is dark and shadowy but you can really see a difference in the wheel gap above the wheels. What was 3 1/2" is now closer to 1 1/2" front and 1 1/4" rear. I can't wait to see her in the daylight.

Goal for tomorrow is to learn how to do an ALIGNMENT and see how it goes from there.
Get a lifetime alignment form Les Schwab.

Every time you mess with your suspension, you just run it down to them, and they do it free from then on.
