Guess on the beam width please !

Postby Joe-405 » Mon May 23, 2011 9:49 pm

gonna go buy one this week .........................


Rear 15x10 ( 2 1/4 offset ) with factory beefed trailing arms................Oh yeah its the wide 5 disc setup with an inch wider offset rotor

Front are spindle mount with 15x4



NOW here is the magical question which width would make the front and back even width or a touch skinnier on the front I am thinking a 6" wider but maybe an 8" wider would be closer

would depend on if you are going to run coilover or stock torsion.

How much you plan to cut the body or not.

Longer trailing arms up front?

or wait till you get the rear all bolted together, then just measure it.

nice stuff:

Just seems that if its that wide, and that big of towers you wouldnt have to cut the body for shock towers?
