springplates notched for clearance
z bar removed
engine and box rasied up 3" and forward 10mm to correct rear toe in and reduce camber
shift rod relocated on top of tunnel due to raise
handbrake also moved

engine is now a 1641cc twin port

thanks, its alot of work getting it this low and still drivable! next on the list is to cut out the rear half of the floorpans and raise them up to sit flush.
