    Let her think about it for a while and it will turn out the accident was your fault after all.

    Changed the oil, tranny fluid, filter and gasket. Bags packed along with the SFC's and down to the in-laws to weld em up this weekend! We'll see how stiff this new suspension is and if I can walk after 4 hours on the road!

    Welded in the sub frame connectors. Now just need new bump stops so I don't keep rubbing the fenders. Any suggestions?

    Test fit the 8.8 on my buddies car. Everything lined up perfectly.....We even compressed the suspension and plenty of clearance for the tank and exhaust.

    Yes, I loaded the suspension prior to welding. That was after setting the car down on the jack stands with a 10 ton fork lift.

    Ok, you'd be surprise how many ppl have forgotten to load the suspension when welding.

    Lowered the car with BMR lowering springs, KYB Struts, Founders LCA's Relo Brackets, ADJ PHB and SFC's. I have 18x9.5 tires on the rear. Just catches the outside lip of the fender when going over dips in the road or going over bridges that aren't smooth at high speeds. Around town driving and cruising isn't an issue.

    I thought that was a no brainer. However, I am not curious. What would happen if you didn't? I should have taken a picture of it on the fork lift! That was kinda cool.

    I started tearing out the rear end to change my diff back to a posi from a locker, I have to say though swapping the 9" in was easier than taking it out, I will put a few pics up when I get home.

    Both tires rub or just one side? I wouldn't think with a 9.5 tire itd rub at all.

    Both sides rub. Not much but enough to hear it. The rear end is centered and double checked by my buddy at the alignment shop.
