Looks good. Just a thought, I do not know if you are planning on leaving them bolts on the control arms or not, but I would suggest changing them to grade 8. Their has been a few people here that have had their originalcontrol arm bolts shear off. Just a thought.

Keep posting progress.

Looks great. What is the width of that 44? Was it narrowed or are you running them full width?

Good deal, should be a helluva good combo. I'm going with the same thing down the road here and the 9" I found is 63" wms-wms. From what I've found, thats roughly 3" wider than stock, give or take a 1/2.

Will you be using stock backspacing on your wheels or something different? I'm running 3.75" backspacing on the stock axles and the tires hang out there quite a bit. Figured I'd go with more backspacing once the axles are swapped in. I don't mind the tires sticking out some but I don't want it looking like a South Phoenix Chevy stepside with 15" wide street tires either, know what I mean?:rolleyes:

Yeah. You know what I'm talkin' 'bout! There's no place on my Heep for a sticker of a saddle, a Brahma bull, or 4" tall reflective old english lettering across my windshield.
