    One of the nicest original undersides.

    Shortened lower shock mounts to get more ground clearance. I set the upper eyelet as high as possible(bottom of the luggage shelf).

    48” backing plate to backing plate.

    13 5/8” with 3” spacers under the pan. It would bottom out with 21 1/4” diameter tires…. We’ll probably run more like a 25” tire with 4” under the pan at ride height.

    Yeah thinking about shocks now. Spent yesterday fitting the upper gussets better and fully welding + double pass welded some of the larger joints.

    Thanks fellas, the IRS arms have been a process. Mostly due to the clearance provided by the 65 swing axle pan (shocktowers/bodymount).

    Wepow! I like that original mirror cap. What’s the story on those? It’s the first I’ve seen.

    1” Narrowed and 3” dropped IRS control arms have been a fun project. Ready for final fitting and welding on the bearing housings.

    Yeah, more welding. I beefed up the front mount with some bands around the tabs. That was the last item of fabrication for the Tesla drive unit. I am done with mounting. Woohooo!

    I’m going to get into some IRS control arm modifications today.

    More welding today. Made a couple gussets for the body/battery mounts. I’m not going to get crazy with gussets like a race car cage…They just looked like they needed more structure, the fronts especially.

    I also build up some material on the shocktowers to finish the edge where they were cut.
