    Sorry for the wait guys, but i had to go visit one of my best friend's mother in the hospital. I am very happy how the wheel and tires turned out. I still need to lower the car a little more. I think it needs about 1" more in the back and about a 1-1/2" in the front. I guess its time for fatman spindles. Anyways, her are the pics.......

    Looks really good, a lot better with the new tires and rims. I just got my 670-15 Firestones today too, and stock rim is 15X5, but you got to lower that thing, just my opinion.

    Yep, it definitely needs to be lowered some more. It has a 3" block in the rear now and 2 coils cut off the front springs. Are the fatman dropped spindles hard to install? I have never tackled king pins before. Also, can i go to a 4" block in the rear without any problems? I do not want to butcher this car, but i do want to go as low as i can............

    looks great! I wonder if you unbolted the rear off the springs and placed stands under the rear springs if you could raise the rear to your liking and see if all is clear then measure the distance for the blocks and just make them? or buy what you need? just thinkin out loud? there is lots of post here about the drop spindles that others have done with out difficulty...

    That looks great - I thought you were going for too wide a whitewall with 3 1/4", but boy, was I wrong - they look great.
    A bit of lowering and your spiders and she's sweet.
