Shoot this is probably really easy just unbolt your lower control arms grind off all the extra metal and redrill your k-member to move them inward.

Hell cut a slut in them, line everything up with heavy washers under the bolt/nuts tighten them down and then weld the washers to the k-member
Ya know, I don't see myself doing any of that :rofl:

Put C/C plates and some strange 10-ways up front and adjusted it with a degree or so of negative camber. Rolled the fenders. And it turns now. These photos are at full lock.

So if I hit a bump at full lock it'll rub. I'm cool with that. That's super rare.

The camber isn't so extreme that it looks stanced. Had to pull off the chrome trim around the wheel wells to roll the fenders. And it actually looks better without it IMO. Think the car is ready to go.

Can’t pull the fenders a bit more?
I think it'll start ruining it if I go more and I wouldn't get much more anyways. I'd have to cut to get more and I'm not doing that. This will work for now. Long term plan will be tube K with shorter A Arms and coilovers to set the height.

Wheels look good, that's all I can say! haha
