I would think something must be out of whack forward of the shock towers, most likely the front cross member and forward parts of the front sub frames. det0326 above came close in suspecting the front was too low. You say you replaced the core support and the front aprons, then found they required tweeking/shimming to raise them higher. This should not have been the case, at least not to the degree you describe. I am not at all sure a mason line would reveal what you really need to know here, especially if your indicator of reference is the bottoms of the floor support extensions. Take comparative measurements based on the Liskey Diagram of the heights of the front and rear frame rails at their most forward and rearward points. I believe your answer lies there. The doors look good with the rockers and the quarters. The issue is forward of the doors, and based on the degree of "off-ness" shows itself most clearly at the very front. Start there, then follow back to find where it starts to go wrong. Heck, it's not out of the question that it starts below the cowl, but let us hope that is not the case. An interesting test would be to fit an accurate quality export brace and see how it lands now, as it sits. That might provide a telling clue too.
