running drop spindles?? if not try slapping those on. might have to run an amigo fender though. and if not...u could try notching out your lower arms to get the additional drop. I just finished doing my front end, and with a lot of help from the guys on here...she lays decently well. tho I now have to worry about my oil pan...any suggestions?

you need to get a smaller tire like a 225-35-20. it should give you prob 1 1/2 more of drop. then see if you need to notch the lowers or build some. you have to reangle the upper ball joints if you dont have drop spidles. and to the other person you can z the frame or section the oil pan an 1inch.
