    Bill,
    When you mentioned that the 15" wheels with the 3 3/4"BS would probably cause tire rub, did you mean on the top outside based on the drop? I'm wondering if that would be the case on mine with the higher ride height. I think you said you planned to use 225/70R15's then.

    BTW, my IFS is from an XJS, so it has the xj12 springs.

    Bill, I used 2" blocks between the rear mount and the frame, also 2" blocks between the stabilizer mounts and the frame. I spoke with Dan, his front mount bolts are about 3/4" below the frame, mine is close to 3" below. Before I removed the original axle, the frame sat level in the area of the firewall. When I got this all together I mounted the same size wheels and tires front and rear, the same frame location is now level. Did you block your mounts?

    Hi Bill
    Yes the 4 bolts that hold the lower spring support to the bottom of the control arm are 3/8 NF.

    I hope this is a right way to send a PM. Yes on the horn button whenever you get a chance, no hurry. Looks like you're going to have a truck bed full of snow for a while, so good luck. Not too bad down here in Central VA, and thanks. Oneye

    I have a parts panel but it may be sold pending figuring out a cost effective way to ship it from CA to OH. So far only the rear doors are sold from it. If the guy doesn't buy the whole thing, then I can cut it up. I'll let you know. Hopefully your guy isn't in a big hurry.

    Thanks, Ilya

    It looks stronger to me than upside down which is why I did it that way.
