Grumpy's 71 Duster

The build can be seen in the build thread, here is the end result. Last thing to do will be to add 2" lowering blocks to the rear to get it down.

I've been considering doing that to my car, but I'm having a hard time getting past the purist side of me. Right now I'm working on bringing my car back to a numbers matching drive train.

The only advantage to LBP is more wheel choices. If your keeping the factory ralley wheels leave it SBP

I don't mind the rallies, but I'd like to put a wider tire on the car. Just not sure what I can use with the minimal clearances.

Beauty Sheldon great job. I thought about going bbp but I lucked out on Kijjiji and found a set of sbp Cragar S/S and the guy agreed to put them on the bus for me. Shipping was didly so scratch the bbp wheels for me. Not being critical in any way but for me that stance is what I like and would not change a thing, ass up heheh
