If those spacers are staying i really hope he is finding a way to make the lower arm and compression arm mounting points higher. Its going to throw off the front to rear balance off completely as the intersecting paths F-R front be the same.
What i would of done is have someone make a custom frame that goes around the setup once in but keeps the stock mounting points in the right place so you dont mess with how the roll centers are etc. Normally we like to raise the points not lower them
I was thinking the same Bobby. This is the part of this project we all knew would be difficult getting the motor through that subframe. So I'm following along to see what they come up with. With the frame that low I don't think you could even get the car to sit level without it dragging the ground so they definitely have a lot of custom work to do suspension wise. Looking at it from those pictures seems like it would have been easier to split the subframe into 2 separate pieces to keep the mounting points original and then make a tube frame crossmember or the like to reconnect them under the trans.
Hey maybe he's gonna go 60's gasser style with it. Straight axle and all with that nose high stance. haha
j/k. I'm really interested to see what your dad has planned. And really cool to see something completely off the wall and different in these cars so I commend you guys for that.
