Allright, that works. Will leave the shocks for now, once I get it running, hoping it should seat properly. Now new questions...

Got a set of tri-y headers...bolted them on all good. Now, putting spark plugs in and I noticed they aren't the same...

The passenger header has the 1-2 and 3-4 joined to exit, typicle tri-y. The driver side has the 5-7 and 6-8 joined...what gives? It supposed to be like this? This is gonna cause problems isn't it...different backpreasures or something? Thanks for any help on this.

Well your firing order is 1 5 4 2 6 3 7 8. The goal for the tri-y's is to not have any 2 consecutively firing cylinders in the same intermediate tube so they split 7 from 8. This is so the scavenging works properly.
