BobM of here, and [email protected] had had a spacer kit available. All the headache taken out for you. It was a 2x2 box with proper spaced bolt holes, bolts etc.......
I don't know if he is still vending them or not, but I will tell you, it sure made life easy. I was a test guinee pig for 1 kit, the steel was just an eyelash thin. He upgraded, and they are great. Taper on the front spacer, makes it look factory stock.
Ride height with 5.0 springs and a big block really was about the same as stock...... I've since switched to morroso drag springs, so I've had to set my ride height the old fashion way. Stuff 3 foot of spring in the car, then guess how much I wanted to cut off and try again.

The best advise I can give you is to use 1.5" spacer between the frame & K member, ya'll be glad you did. More hood room, motor sets streight, headers will not hit the bottom of car & motor will set more in line with the radiator. If you need some pics let me know?

Re: Eldebrock aluminum heads vs SCJ aluminum heads
Most swap headers need minor tweeking at the steering shaft with or without the K-Spacers. There are ways to adjust the angles that the shaft comes through that area via shimming the column, and a steering shaft kit with small u-joints like the flaming river deal work really well. Email me at [email protected] for details.
I used Maximum Motorsports telescoping steering shaft, and tweeked the D&D midlength headers just a bit on one tube. Barely tapped it with a hammer. I also trimmed the back of my K'frame just a little bit on the passenger side.
First time sex
A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet, and have dinner with her parents.
Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time
The boy is ecstatic, but he has never...
Here's a few pictures of some stuff I've been getting to work on. Thankful for work and that I still get to work on things I love. Look forward to seeing some of your projects at home and work..
