yeah, Dave - sorta looks like the whole shebang would roll under and nosedive the cart under any kind of severe braking, doesn't it ?!?

I do plan on fixing it, just not sure how I plan on doing it. If there was a better front end that didn't take a TON of fabwork (no welder here) I would put it on instead.

Does anyone have a pic of a stock front end so I can compare it?

By the way, I think the coil overs are what is pushing the front down. They are set on the lowest setting and it seems to be under a lot of tension. They are 14.5 inches from center hole to center hole.

I'll snap some pics of my setup when I get home this afternoon (unless it's raining by then) - hopefully that can give you some ideas
