Got the plates modified and mocked up with the shock in place. Looks like we've made some room.

This is at ride height.




Bolt lines up much better. Slides in without a fight. I'll have to shallow up that spacer to maximize the space available.




Welded them up this eve, need to give them a coat of paint since I burnt off that nice powder coated finish.

I have 275/50-15 MT ET streets on my 70 AMX and they fit good with 4.5" backspace.   Rubs 1/4 slightly on big bumps but car is lowered about 2 inches the rear.  Factory leafs

Finished the install. Looks like there's more room between the leaf and tire, might be room for a 275 tire after all.

If I remember right the '70 rear is 1" narrower than the '69. That jars the numbers a bit.
