im not seeing anything wrong with those pics... other then nothings cut out to clear the tire? The amount of shims will depend on your preffered ride height when you get it aligned.

You're gonna need to cut that fender skeleton out, tub the firewall, dehump lowers, and get drop spindles if you don't have them already.

Like Dave said, the amount of shims is all in how you're ride height is set.

unless you have a TON of shims, it will not affect laying out on a 20" wheel, so don't worry about the shims.

Also, the wiring harnesses, and prolly the heater core etc will need to be relocated.

you've got a good bit of work ahead of you, but its worth it.

search on the forum for relocating, tubbing for 20's, etc, you will find some good threads.

The spring pockets where the front bags are.. I'm on my phone so I can't get to technical, but if you search spring pockets prior to someone posting a pic you can see what he's talking about.

It prevents the bag from being pictured or rubbed.. There is a two finger clearance unwritten rule so to speak.

1. Tub firewall
2. Relocate appropriate items
3. De-hump Lower arms / Get tubulars
4. Notch frame for tie-rods
5. Gut the fenders inner skeleton


Are you running drop spindles?

calm down thats what forums are for to post the same thing over and over
I somewhat agree with this. People could at least point the person in the right direction (IE link to a thread that answers the questions). I remember having trouble searching for things at first... Let's all play nice :D
