I know its a long shot, but does anyone happen to know how much travel we theoretically have available on our suspension? Especially interested in the front end.
Maybe if anyone has a front end torn apart right now you can measure how far the control arm moves?

We don't have stock control arms on our cars, but I can tell you that we had to limit the amount of drop we put in the cars. We went lower on Mark's and we ended up breaking half shafts due to the angularity of the outer joint under bump and turn. We would snap the end spline off every time. Raised the car an inch and never a problem. I run mine about an inch lower than stock and it really works well.

Interesting. I'm surprised the CV's don't take that up sufficiently.
I might need to study our axles more closely, that's something I don't know enough about.
