Body Damage is Cool
the length and angle of the joints of the half shafts is an other problem for consideration

too much offset rims may destroy your bearings rapidly...

yes im gonna drop it 4 inches. im hoping dennis will post pictures of the drop brackets he had made.

so the front will consist of my modded upper arm/bushing system. 4 inch diff drop brackets. 4 inch lower control arm drop brackets. and until i go coil over a 4 inch strut spacer. along with the odds and ends like sway bar drop brackets yadda yadda. in the back im using tj 3 inch lift springs and extending the panhard bar and i might make a set of modified control arms so i can adjust it all. i want to get all the kinks outta this and make the kit or plans avalible to other kia nuts

With that much travel in the rear, in my head i was seeing longer panhard rod mounts. I would just think that it would have too much angle, and shift the rear axle too much, if you had any weight in it, i guess. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Perhaps instead of installing a longer panhard rod, you would need to go with a Watt's linkage setup to keep the rear axle from shifting.

GONE, all I have left are a few spare parts and the wheels.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I also dont think a bushing is going to work out in that app. as it will cause to much deflection and wear to quickly. You might use a hiem or a uniball of some sort.
