With a tubular k-frames move the wheels forward .75 in. Ihad to relocate the sway bar. Should I move the caliper hard line forward also? It would be a problem since I running hard line any way. Got to fire up my new welder 2 weeks ago been practicing to get my skills up to par. Right now if I got arrested they couldn't accuse me of being a welder. Laughing hopefully I'll a handle on it soon and I can install the subframe connectors.

I left the stock location of the rubber lines in tack. But I also used '98 Mustang rubber lines.

if you are using the later style k-member & lower A-control arms you may need to reverse the bushings in the lower control arms, other wise the wheels will be too far to the rear, and there wont be any caster angle to speak of. i havent done it myself yet, but i read it in HR magazine, dude did some wild mods, and that was one of the problems he incurred.

It seems all is well. I've got the wheels off the ground with no pulling of the lines when turning lock to lock. The control arms seemed to be alright. Just have to bleed the brakes and get a the front end realigned,then I can drive again Laughing
