that is just awsome. Have fun with it.

A word of caution on the front lift, too much angle on the front CV axles, and they will grind themselves up in short order. Ideally they should run at zero angle for least wear, a small angle will not harm much, but a sharp angle means those joins are always in sharp and rapid action with each rotation of the wheel.

So it is advisable to limit the front lift to about an inch, and get any additional height with larger wheels and tires (which may mean cutting out some of the front fenders), or just live with one inch lift.

Otherwise you would have to lower the engine to keep the CV axle in line (which means a lot of cutting and welding), but that would mean you would loose the center clearance you wanted in the first place.
