Not done with all the suspension in rear, plus wheels I am using are 18s so the final stance may be different. To each his own...I don't want to raise the floor either. I am 6'4" ...so keeping it roomy is a goal of mine.affraidKEEP POSTEDaffraid

Looking good! This looks alot like my 65' project. I struggled with the final stance height and settled on somewhere between 5-7" static (no bags) for a usable interior and ground clearance. I ended up raising a rail across the rear axle but kept the rest of the floor at the OG height. What part of AZ are you in? I would love to come take a look at this project. I work in Chandler and my van is in Tempe.

the Monte SS wheels will not be my final choice...I have a set of 18"s that need modifying before too long and it should sit lower with the rear notched and bagged, four link is done though...not to shabby out of a one car garage Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

without giving the wheel away I will tell you it will be an 18x7.5 and it will have the same paint color as the van ( I wont talk about color scheme yet cause I don't want the public to know 'til I am further along) next up is front tie rod ends and then mock up powertrain...cant wait
