I'd like to see 4 things in this thread:

1) Oil Pan ground clearance picture(s), and which specific oil pan you are using

2) Axle angle from tranny to hub pictures

3) Picture(s) w/ decription showing drop from fender above top of tire to ground

4) Chasis, motor mounts used, and wheel size (suspension / axles optional info)

Story behind this thread:

A guy at the Nopi Nationals approached me asking how my axles were surviving with such an angle from the tranny to hubs. He stated the axles were seeing a huge incline from the tranny to the hubs. Well I forgot to look at them because I was just having too much fun at the show :p Weeks went by and while working on the hatch I noticed my oil pan was pretty close to planet earth. So, I decided to raise the Ground Controls approximately 1" all around. This brought the car up to a 1 finger gap between the fender and top of the tire at all four corners. I'm still thinking about raising the car another 1/2", but not sure since I don't want the 4 X 4 look :rolleyes:

So post up those pics :cool: :up:

Lets get some additional information. Please also measure from the ground to the top of the arch in the wheel well. This way any and everyone can determine what their ground clearance will be before the swap regardless of what drop they have.

For example, if wheel arch is at 25", and oil pan clearance is 5", then we know there is a 20" difference. That 20" difference will be the same no matter if your car is stock height or dropped 4".
