Mini-Tub / Leaf spring Relocation??
Hey Mopar World! I would like to pick some brains out there... I have a 1972 Ply Satellite that i am considering doing a mini-tub and leaf spring reloction kit on. Actually i had already started a bit, I drilled out spot welds and removed deck lid braces and tray package support. I am not familiar with the relocation kit, it says i can move wy springs in by 3" (Summit Kit). My measurements shows that i will be getting in to the subframe??? Have not been able to find installation intstructions on these and I havnt ordered them yet. Also I have fuel lines that tuck inside of the wheel well on the RT side and a brake line on the LT side... I planned on replacing fuel line to 3/8" anyway since I'm installing a big block so i imagine i can reroute it. I'm also installing an 8 3/4" rearend from a '69 charger and heard it may be a bit narrower then my original 8 1/4". By my measurements I'm gonna gain about an extra 2" of clearance (getting really close to the subframe). Does anyone have any experience with those relocation kits or doing a mini-tub? Is it worth the trouble for an extra 2" (or is my calculaions wrong)? I would like to hear from your experiences.... Thanks
