Well so far it has all worked out. the springs went on with ease in stock WB configuration. I used my old rear spring plates to fit the 2.5 wide fronts. I also used my 2.5" lift rear shocks on the front and they are just aout the perfect length. My front driveshaft worked fine, and my rear driveshaft is a 79 CJ7 v8 4spd shaft cut down 1" andf it fits fine, although I did have to make a 1.25" transpercase drop because the angle was too steep. When I stretch the wheelbase, i'm hoping a cv shaft will work while moving the t-case back up. All im waiting on at the moment is extended front brake lines.
The measurements ended up being right at 6" inches above stock one leaf removed front and rear all while staying spring under.
It clears my 33s with ease and appears it will do the same for 35". Im hoping that when i stretch the wheelbase i will be able to fit 38" but i wont do that until i have re geared and beefed up my 44/9" combo.
I will get some pics of it out this weekend.
