Possibly a stupid question here but 15" rims will fit over my Expo rear end calipers right? Just thought about it and wanted to double check.

Guys I really am having second thoughts on the 35s... I want them but I'm having second thoughts if they are going to fit.

35's would fit fine. Stop worrying and buy them. I had 33's on mine with 1" of lift and I only rubbed the frame at full lock.

Quick question... I'm getting ready to order my new rims here in a bit and was unsure of the backspacing. They have 4" backspacing. Do I need to get spacers for them? If so, how big of spacers?

I had 4" with my fabtech. It was fine. Had the same setup you had except for the body lift. 15x10 soft 8's too.

are you putting the gears in or having someone do it for you? when you say clutch rebuild kit do you mean the LS clutches or transmission clutch? Because since you will have it apart i would look into rebuilding the LS.

I'm doing the gears "myself". My friends dad who used to build drag cars and helped start pro charger is going to walk me through the process step by step.

Yeah it's a LS clutch rebuild kit haha. My tranny clutch is fine *knock on wood*
