I like it, but not any lower, so (dont yell at me) I am going to flip the shackles back over (3" higher), get the bed installed, and then adjust to this height with blocks as needed. New shocks will now fit as expected. I need to weld this stuff in place so I will stop messing with it. C notch may not be needed, there is 3 1/2" travel available with the rear axle at this height, maybe that is enough? Made patterns today to make the notch but I will save them.

We actually just got through a restoration about 4 years ago and the 300 I6 is still running strong. Trying to decide if I should wait for it to start going out then do the restomod. I want to do crown vic front and rear suspension and the crown vic motor/trans/rear end. but anyways don't mean to derail this thread. keep up the good work.
