Was the mod necessary because the new engine is set back as compared to the original engine?
probably that and the pervious owner already installed frame extensions for the trans crossmember and i wanted to keep using the holes that were already there, the the trans crossmember came from a car that had a sbc/th400 vs my ls/th400

Started mocking up the bar that will be welded from frame rail to frame rail, this will be the bar the anti-roll bar and coil overs will mount to. Hopefully my 9 inch housing/axles will be here Saturday.

9" housing from quick performance came in over the weekend, still waiting for the axles to get here, but so far I'm very pleased with it. going to be welding in the coil over brackets and anti-roll bar brackets soon hopefully.
