I think the 4 link was Bel Tech along with the Bel Tech shocks and spindles. Electric compressors suck! Probably going for a york..

Ok, I wiped off the snow, here's what it looks like with the seat over the notch. I used seat belts from a 80's fullsize chevy van so they would reach back to a body crossmember and still be long enough to go around my "husky" cruising buddies.. (or the carseat) The inner fenders were moved up a few inches to tuck the 255/45/20's. Keeping my eye out for a set of seat belts that arn't purple..

Porterbuilt crossmember, fuel cell (for clearance) belt driven air compressor, 73 top, wider rear wheels, install my factory tach cluster from my old 79 Jimmy, rust repair, new carpet, dash, power rear window... All in good time though, its my daily driver from spring to fall and I put about 90 kms on it every day!

Mostly highway miles. man that destroys front tires when you're half aired out and way off camber at highway speed! You can only rotate a directional tire so many times.. Another reason I'd like to get the drop crossmember, so I can cruise low but with a better alignment/camber. What rear tire size you running on those 20x10's? ..looks like just enough meat
