no the coils are about 1/4" from hitting the frame right now. i have no idea what it will do if it flexes.

my guess is we will be cutting a big chunk out the frame.

having to notch the frame would be a shame, didnt you take measurments and such so you could have worked around the frame and coil clearences?

dont notch the frame.. there shouldnt be a need too. plenty of other EB swaps and such have been done without it. its not a big deal if yer coils sit at an angle ot touch under big flex. not worth cut'n out the frame

but i guess if you built it back nice it'd be ok. but its really not needed

im telling you that it will prolly have to be done just so it doesn't rub on normal driving...

EB axles are wider. I'm almost 100% sure of that.

and im not angling the coils out.

nope, didnt think it would be an issue, not like notching the frame will only take about an hour... that is cake.

no brake lines, no shocks, no front driveshaft, drag link needs work, the hoops need more work, track bar needs mounted, back lower links need brackets, then everything needs aligned and who knows what else. a lot of work yet.
