51 4 link and travel ?

Wanting to add 4 link to the 51, with truck at ride ht. And weight on suspension.what is the least amount of space i need between top of axle tube and bottom of frame? If i notch the frame i can only gain about an inch before the top of pumpkin hits the bead wood.would 3 be doable? That would get me the look i want, and would just allow a 14 shock to work, plan on qa1 coilovers,

3" clearance is good. I set my stuff up for that amount w/great results.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
