no 1G kybs, I need to measure them and post up in here. This seems to be common issue with the awd swaps. Hopefully we can come up with a great feasible solution to the problem

How much taller is your lower shock mount over stock? Your pics look like.3-4" if so. Then if I use these spacers. I'll be in the same boat with too much lift in rear.

I bet with lowered towers aand a 2" spacer top or bottom will be perfect. And youll have up/down adjustment

I will measure and post up tonight.. I believe they are 5 inches on the extension, which is entirely too much

Got a few more things done tonight..

started by welding in some plates for a cage, and also to add structure to the shock towers since i chopped them up

Next i dedided to mount my fuel cell. Its not as low as i want it, but it will work. I drilled and tapped my mustache bar bar. hah and mounted the rear. then pulled the rear bumper and mounted the front of the tank. welded some angle i had laying around, drilled it. and bolted it up
Image

I had a buddy wreck his EK civic hatch,and he gave me the CF hood skin so i came up with a decent idea for it..

Image

To hell with cutting CF.. there is now DUST everywhere.. and it smells terribble.. thats it for tonight.

Do you plan on mounting straps for the tank? On my fuel cell it had a tag on those mount points that said not to use them. Not sure why they would make those mounts for them though :rolleyes:
