Front suspension consists of stock length strut assembly flipped to the bottom of the control arm plus 1/2” spacers between arm and strut. Also has 2” drop spindles

Rear is 6” drop springs, C-notch, and ~1000lbs of audio equipment in the cargo area. Also has Spohn panhard bar

Front inner fenders have been cut out today to make room for 26’s. Also had to cut part of the firewall to allow for turning full lock

With factory 20’s and 255/50/20 tires the drop measures 7/10. It rubbed pretty bad up front on dips

Now for the fun part. Today I got to cutting out the front fenders. I thought I could get away with minor trimming but the more I cut, the more I found spots where the tire hit. Ran out of time today because I didn’t expect to go this far but the front will have tubs hopefully by the end of the week

The wiring needs to be cleaned up but I’ll do that once the tubs are in and finalized. My luck I’ll get all the wiring reran and the tubs will hit something

got the 26’s bolted up today. Didn’t think they’d rub in the rear but they do so I have to trim the fender lip back about 1/4”

Remembered to get a picture of the strut mounted from the bottom of the control arm and what the wheel looks like from the engine bay. It looks extremely close from that angle but it has 3-4” of room between the tire and the inner fender cut
