    6.4 front
    5.95 rear
    Bored wheels to fit hubs
    Removed lips from fenders
    Trimmed rear lips
    Springs moved with offset kit
    Fits without spacers over hat style rotors on all 4 corners.

      I'm going to assume they redesigned this spring. When I tried them, not only was the ride height too low, but they wrapped up like crazy. Very weak spring

      This is hardly a pro-touring setup, rather a drag racing wheel/tire combo. You must have also moved the rear end back in the wheel opening to fit a 29" tire. The stock axle center line to the front of the wheel opening is approximately 14.5", which leaves zero clearance for 29" tall tire. Or, the tire doesn't actually measure 29". I used to run a 275/60-15 drag radial years ago, and it only measured 27-27.5" when the calculated diameter and the manufacturers say they are 28".

      Wrong my fine feathered friend. Moving the axle back is something I HAVE AND "wont" ever due ! If I were going to move it, it would be forward .
      It is in the stock location, same as when I ran 295 65 15 drag radials . I did rework the front of the fenders before the paint job, rolled the lips, and adjusted the inner fender panels in certain spots with a hammer / from past experience , and run 3/4" offset hangars , and the dana 60 is 1'' shorter than an A body rear, altho it has disc brakes which change the width too . I been doing this a long time.
      It still doesn`t hook up , but that's another story , front end problems---------I don't know if it will ever hook up on these small tires tho.
      Trying to load a pic with the 295 d.r. -----------
      You are right about not being a pro touring set up , in the fact that I haven`t built up that much trust in the build yet .

        I am a member that currently only has an e body, owned As in the past. Really wanting to get another FB.

        I love fastbacks. As of ten minutes ago, l really liked notches.

        Your car has swayed me to the love side.

        Your car is amazing. Stunning.
