Re: 72 ABS brake lines

Where are you on the body swap? How does it sit on the newer chassis? I'm concerned about it being "ass end high" due to the coil spring rear suspension; and not really looking to stuffing a body lift under the front end to get it riding level.

That's what I had on mind but I wasn't to sure, just remove the ABS and make new lines for everything with longer stainless steel hoses as I will be lifting the suspension 3" anyways.

I'm cleaning and removing stuff that I won't need like the air system for the shocks and all the wiring system, I already sent the PCM and wires for cutting and reprogram.

This weekend I will be working on the body supports, I will have to lift the body at least 2" to make room for the last 2 bolts on the body as they will hit the spare tire.

Getting there....
