 I did at first too and they do move around a little at times when your working on stuff. When I have trucks on mine, I’ll usially put a screw jack stand under the rearend. I hang a tag on the controls when doing that just as a reminder to take it away before lowering it down though.

took the rear end out of the GMC last weekend,got new spring perches and u bolts.it was kinda just temporarily in there from 2003.its back in now welded . meanwhile im waiting for wheels to come back from sandblasting. still waiting on the hood to return from paint.(1 week delay was my fault).expecting my bed wood to be milled very soon. then it has to dry,then it can be finished to size.then i have to decide on a stain and topcoat for it.i got a carb and a regular hei to make it run reliably,havent installed that stuff yet,(dont have tires and wheels anyways)

So I have the car on blocks, and I got some measurements today, then I called Mark Williams for a drive shaft. I have a 1350 billet yoke, but MW has a trickier one. I can get it spun together for balancing, and I do not have to pull the yoke to take out the transmission. Hope the link works. So a heavy car + length of drive shaft, and 7000+ RPM at the stripe = 4" aluminum, and a couple of bucks cry A couple more pictures.

Was finishing up my electric fan install today, got the shroud on and went under the dash to check the wires on the toggle switch when I noticed ALL of the screws on the underside of my dash are gone!  A good launch and it would have been in my lap!  Will make a trip to the parts store tomorrow.

Now that I can get the car off of the ground enough to at least sit up, I finished welding the transmission cross member plates to the frame. Now I'm trying to fit the under housing anti roll bar. One adjuster is pretty short, the other is a smidge on the long side. I hate to mess with the anodizing, but it is probably better to have less threads showing. I also have to see if the threads are bottoming out in the long adjuster. The short adjuster has the ARB bracket level, the picture looks off, my camera angles are funky .
