    its not too bad actually, doesnt hang any lower than the subframes do, and its especially worth it for the results of the handeling

    its inbetween the wheels right? so however low it hangs will never matter because the wheels will pick it up. good progress so far. ive been im'in you but no response. do all mm k members do that and shove the wheels that far foward?

    well this weekend was totally ****, saturday took me 4 hours to get the car on the trailer cause my come along broke, sunday didnt get the subframes finished so i had to drop 80 bucks to get that finished, then on my way back from the welder i got a ticket for making a left turn onto my street since they had the left turn close, and its the only way to get their with a trailer, also while at the welder when i was strapping the car down i dislocated my shoulder, **** i need a vacation

    progress today, but no pictures yet, got the engine to start and run under its own power, just started capping all the vacuum fittings that are no longer in use and the engine started to idle better and better, still can hear some leaks just can find where they are coming from i'll figure that out tomorrow when i fix the seat bracket on the drivers side
