custom long arms are easy if you know how to cut/weld.

there's a brake line extension in the tech library about using 2 pieces that are easily found at parts houses near you.

ended up putting a lift block and add a leaf in the rear, will put the wheels on tonight and see how it sits....should i hook the rear sway bar back up?? i was going to use the longer end links on the front sway bar....want to be able to drive it without it having a ton of body roll. will a front be enough??

Couldn't hurt to have it hooked up. My 84 B2 has front and rear sway bars on it, it does certainly help in handling.

Looks good! How much lift did you put on? 4" or 6"?
