Let me tell you, the steering has been one of the biggest PITA of this project. Nothing factory fit at all. I had to modify and shorten the steering box, order a 2” shorter steering column to be able to clear the manifold coming out of the firewall, custom brackets to position it. Three swivel joints and a heim joint and don’t get me started on trying to find a pitman arm. I went through five of those.

I also have the stock sized drilled/slotted rotors (pictured above) that I never used if anyone needs them.

Do those hubs have the correct lug studs? Last time I checked, they didn't have metric studs.

Still have a lot to do. I got a new welder and I’m teaching myself to tig so I can wrap up all the piping. I’ve only ever mig welded. Also need to put a rear end together, it’s totally stock back there for now. Was thinking 9” but open to suggestions. This is just a street cruiser truck/demo truck for the shop so I don’t need to go crazy, but I don’t want it to break with spirited driving. It’ll also have bags. A bunch of other random stuff to do like brake master cylinder, catch can, line lock, boost controller, heater etc etc etc lol. And of course one crazy one off interior.
