Won't the tires hit the tube frame on full compression or is it already at full compression right now? I didn't see springs on the struts.

thats fully compressed. springs are removed and i had to cut the brake line brackets off rear struts to let it finish dropping. with a 1" front 2" rear lift, my lateral links will be parrellel to ground and so will my steering rods. I just need to hope the coilovers cam be dropped that low and still give me 2-3" of travel

Got pedals tacked in place last night and steering wheel in place. Because I've shifted the wheel down into race car mode, it made the ujoint a lil funny. I think it still turns fine but won't know until I mount it solid. So today is A Pillar brace day, then I can mount a cross pipe similar to the stock cross pipe to mount steering wheel to. I didn't want any pipes aimed at me in case of an accident so this should work pretty well.

Here's yinz dam pics. It steers, feels good enough. Need to get holy shit pedal mounted up so I know where to mount the tunnel tubes. Then it's seat tubes, etcc. Getting real hard to move around in there, would kill for a bigger garage or some sunny and 70's to work outside
