yeah man, definitely like the rig- one question, are the rear lower shock mounts below the centerline of the links? What's the engine in there? I like your tube work though, and your use of dimple dies :) Post some more pics!

the rear shock mounts are not below the centerline, i ran a poly bushing at the frame to prevent arm wobble and a 1.25 hiem with high misalignment spacers at the axle to get enough flex. i figured if the poly bushing didnt hold up i would make some little wobble stopper tierods at the frame but the poly bushings seem fine. its got a mild 350 in there now, thinking a snottier small block down the road probably a 406 or a 396 stroker vortec small block. thanks for the compliments.
