Front is back yard engineered with 63 Corvette airshocks and rear is one click,with 3" drop plates and frame notched. Me and Tim did it all,as far as front goes Doodle is gonna build me a 5" beam with adjusters and Spindles as soon as I go depart a 68 by my house that he is getting some parts off of as well. Gonna give him beam off of it so I have no down time in mine,all he needs is the center pin he builds them from scratch but needs your center pin to build one. Tire sizes are 175/55-15 in front and 185/65 -15 in rear no scrub but rear could go 195/65 if you want a wider rear tire. It rides good with shocks aired up but I want to go lower n narrower in front. Rear is perfect and rides great bdut I am gonna put airshocks back there for clearance when loaded for camping,the mustache bar scrubs sometimes when loaded down with gear.

Cool man thanks. I do want to use a taller tire on the rear to help this 5.375 R/P on the highway. I have adjusters in the beam but I don't want to narrow it b/c of the loss of ride quality. I'm not as young as I once was.

Should ride good narrowed if done properly. 195/70 would be ideal if your looking for taller any wider may rub if you go low.

I decided to call my Westy The Time Machine for more than one reason.

1. If goin somewhere in it alow extra time to get there its gonna take some time its so slow.

2. It has made it through time and still exist in time travel at a slow rate of speed.

3. If those walls n seats could talk I am sure it could tell you some intresting stories of its journeys in time.

4. The Speedo should say HPM not MPH....Hours Per Mile its so slow.

5.Everytime we take it out on a trip its Guaranteed a Good Time.

Love my Time Machine,now off to travel through time at a slow rate of Speed.

Finnaly replacing wiper shafts. Removed wiper assembly and ordered new ones from Airhead parts. Kind of a pain but not too bad so far. Bit of a challenge figuring new ones out they mount a little different per hardware they come with.

Yes TMI. Fit great ,foam doesn't line up with piping as well as horse hair padding would but overall they turned out great and are comfy and oderless unlike the old ones that had major Stinky factors.
