Good news: new suspension is it and the ride height is finally where it should be.
Bad news: I have some clearance issues still. Hopefully when I get it aligned they can adjust the caster to buy me some more space between the tire and lower-front edge of the fender.
My advice is to get a narrower tire (like 225) on the front if you have a 65-66.
Exactly why I did a 215 up front. I just had the fenders rolled and by the looks of-haven't really driven the car on public roads yet-I could've done a 225 as you said... next time I need tires though!
Car is lookin good with that drop Blake!

Finally completed- working on last bugs....
Well, after an odyssey trying to get narrower (215) tires on the front that included the tire shop ruining both front wheels, they're replaced and I finally have it aligned after replacing the front suspension.
It drives straight, handles great, no squeaks or noises and no rubbing.
Took too darn long to get it on the road but this chapter is finally done.
Wow what a ride, great looking cars guyz! One thing I have learned is if you are considering altered UCA, go with shorter ones and a lower Arning drop. I am at 1/2 inch shorter, with a 15degree change in ball joint angle - e.g. what a negative wedge kit would do. You end up shimming the UCA back out but now you get more negative camber as the suspension drops. Picture the ball joint higher than the anchored end of the UCA so it rotates upward and inward at the ball joint with a tighter arc radius by 1/2". Makes a big difference in tire clearance but leaves it looking great at the ride height. I am able to clear 225s no problem now with 8" rims 4.5" offset. Turn-in is awsome also with the added neg camber - great unless you already oversteer...
