    I have 4 3/4" from frame to floor and 4 1/2" from headers to floor. I wish I would have measured them spots before putting in the Hotchkis drop springs..lol.

    Well I guess there wasn't anything to dread afterall....rear leafs went in very easily. All bolts came out without breaking, and I didn't even have to drop the gas tank! Ratchet wrenches are the key here. Here is the finished stance.....I have a small front tire rub to sort out, but after that its time to enjoy.

    I needed a 3/8" shim in the drivers side coil spring pocket (that's what the Hotchkis tech told me) but they don't offer any. I contacted Global West, and got one coming. It was $18 and should correct my tire rub on deceleration. It is supposed to be here in the morning, so I will get it installed and post the results.
