I have the 944 bars in it now. Somebody said 23mm but I am gonna mic em. Mark @ BCR said I would twist out the inner splines on the torsion housing if I played rough, so the coil over will be an upgrade afta I get the car running. Tomorrow is friday for me..I am working a 4-10 schedule and I hope to get some work done on the car on my days off.

Heck, you could completely hack off the rear frame horns if you're in that deep already. You could fabricate a new set up from 1-12" tubing and tie in into your cage for additional support. That way, you could set it up from scratch and have it EXACTLY the way you want it.

Got to use my tubing bender today, not sure Iam totaly happy with it. But I was able to get the bottom support rail in.....its not complete as I will grind and blend the welds in. I either have to widen my front end again or get wheels with zero offset.

I think its about 4" , not exact. The wheels are offset to the inside about 3", I have been searching for different wheel, I found that the G-Class Mercedes has the 5x130 bolt pattern. 8x16" Rubicon
