I will admit the 9 inches looks good but I dont see the practicality of driving it around like that, With my 7 inch drop my gastank is like 3-4 inches off the ground thats low enough for my taste. Also the pinion angle is giving you such a hassle I couldnt imagine taking that thing on the highway or even think about the vibrations you'll have and the u joints that it will eat. Also isnt your driveshaft rubbing on the crossmembers around the gastank? I know mine is pretty damn close with the 7 inch drop.
Im not saying its bad to be that low it just doesnt seem practical, eating u joints and dealing with that pinion angle and how low the gas tank is almost on the ground. Honestly I would return the front hangers to how they were originally and flip the rear ones and have a safe but functioning 7 inch drop in the back, yeah thats bragging rights having the 9 inch drop in the back it just doesnt seem safe or worth the trouble it will bring. I mean Im sure you can deal with a 5/7 until you bag it and then you wont have the issue of replacing u joints or busting your plastic gas tank.
I love the look of it rolling cali style static but it almost looks to much with a 5/9 drop.
