Good news. Glad you got them and they look good. Do they look like they are going to clear everything? Thanks, Ken.

But will it clear the frame rails?

That is where I had my problem with my shorties (un-known brand).

Now I have to move my k-frame to the driver's side 1/8 th of an inch to clear the rails.

I think my problem may have turned out to be self-inflicted.

I put on some wider wheels this weekend which has the edge of the front tires come out just slightly past the the edge of the bodywork.
The driver's side looks great, but the pass. side sticks out about 3/16 " more than left.

I think when I put in the k-frame spacers, I moved the k-frame accidently towards the pass. side. (at least I hope that is all)

Might explain why I had to keep denting up the # 2 tube to clear the frame rail.
