Axle flip. I can get the U bolts and spring perches reasonable along with a friend who can help cut the frame a little and weld in plate steel.

Re: Lowering For FE

Nice. That's going to be a LOT of lowering all at once. Do you have clearance for the tires? Do you have a plan for lowering the front too so you're not "sitting Cali" with too much lean?

Yeah all the way around. The fun part is the bushings for camber alignment.

If its cheap and easy go for it. If it was me id be looking for a 5sp and a 2.73 equiped rear end. shoudnt be too much money for both. If you do decide to lower make sure you take a pretty good gas log so we can all see the effects.
