I wish you had a little bit better lighting though. I would like so see how close the steering rod is to the frame and how you mounted the upper A arm mount, especially on the driver side.

That was already done at Harris, I'm just rebuilding all the bad parts of this car. I had to do a lot of fabrication in the front, and replace a few parts. The steering spline where the pitman arm hooks to was twisted so bad i couldnt even get the front end close. it was twisted probably a 1/4".

Turn your shocks over to lighten the unsprung weight. 1 pound of unsprung weight is equal to 10 pounds of weight on the springs, so turning your shocks over would make the suspension react like the car lost about 20 pounds.

i agree about turning your shocks over. I would also change how they mount at the top to this http://www.smileysracing.com/cat/view_pg.php?pKey=977634&sKey=4eb09cc36b618e1ce8102c7a3f8055c1&pgID=202
We used braket B we didnt realize how much they were binding up before. Heres kinda what it looks like installed. Picture from the same website. It isn't using that particular braket but you get the idea. I bet lots of others are using them too. I just never noticed it until lately. http://www.smileysracing.com/cat/view_pg.php?pKey=977634&sKey=4eb09cc36b618e1ce8102c7a3f8055c1&pgID=86
I can email you a pic of ours if you want. We just got them on this weekend
