Wow, having the car on a rotisserie sure looks like a good way to set up a suspension and weld all the brackets from a right side up position. Do you have to notch the rear frame rails for a pocket to accept the front of the lower arms?

Yes I am measuring to see if I can put pockets in the original frame rails and reinforce the outside of them. I have been looking at how SpeedTech manufactures their extreme chassis, that looks like a great option on making the pockets. I want them to be inside the frame rails rather than on top with sandwich brackets if that makes sense.

More work the last two days.
Had to remove the temporary supports I had holding the housing. I didn't have enough steel on hand so I used a couple of old lawn tractor blades

I ordered some spring perches so I could drop it down a little farther to mock-up trailing arm clearance.

A couple more days to work on it then I am off to Austin to see my daughter/ We are taking a sheet metal class at Hammerfab next week.

Not yet, have to finish paying for them Dec 2nd.

Larry and Zak are awesome to deal with. They allowed me the time (weeks and weeks) to get the measurements right.

I agonized over the measuring , built jigs, built supports for a 9" housing, had a friend come over and double check all my measurements.

Going with titanium centers and brushed barrels.

I got the housing setting on some square tubing that is tacked to the frame rails and on top of actual spring perches. I got it as low/high as I think it will be for bottoming out.

I then was able to get it all squared up and centered so I mad some templates out f cardboard, then hardboard. I need to get these dialed in and have four of them plasma cut.

more fiddling ahead
