[FONT=Calibri]First I did a simple bag job on the stock suspension on the 14” wheels…but I can never leave stuff that simple. I soon cut off the unibody rails at the rear seat and rebuilt the backhalf out of 2x3 with a 6 link. Triangulated lower arms with lift bars out back.[/FONT]

Fixed it for you. Try to stay away from font edits. They make **** messy. Nice car and good work!
