My 50 is a factory mustang suspension. But those trucks have the perfect frame width so you dont have to stub it like that. You can slide it right around the frame. It can be done cleanly, I think people just take the easybrode sometimes

Yeah, at least I got awhile to think about it, canít get it into my garage just yet. The m-2 suspension was one of the selling points for me, but if I have to, Iíll put it on a modified mini truck chassis, that 2wd Chevy tracker I got is looking better and better.

The adjustments in the upper A arm should give you enough to align it unless they have the crossmember way out of whack.
