I am going the same direction you are with the Alter-k-tion front end for a number of reasons especially with improved geometry but also more stock tire choices. I have two questions. Does the suspension in the front have anyway of tying into the shock tower for added supporting of the weight? I have heard from others that there is too much stress on the upper spring support for a Crate Hemi. The second question is about the Street-Lynx and location of the angled link tabs to be welded to the differential. How are these located and does the u-bolted shock mounts on the rear end index off of the old spring perch on the differential?

I need to pay better attn to this thread.
I had a friend of mine ask if I was interested in building something along these lines with his car.

How is the rear suspended as I don't see any leaf springs ? are you doing any wheel tub modifications or is it a stock wheel house ?

No there isn't any problems with the upper spring support. The Alterkation front ens has been time tested for over 10 years. There is another brand(I won't mention that has had many failures)plus Bill at Reilly motorsports is a true mopar guy and has great customer service. As far a the street lynx rear it locates off the rear spring perches on the rear. More info is available on thier website.

Added some angle braces (made from 2"X2" square tubing)to may transmission crossmember, boxed the ends of the member. Took some measurements and cut out the trans mount area of the crossmember. I,m waiting on another bellhousing as the quicktime won't work. The T56 Magnum has to bosses on the front that won't clear.

The Aluminum bellhousing from keisler to fit the T56 Magnum tranny.The quicktime bell doesn't fit because the Magnum has 2 oil pump bosses in the transmission face that won't clear. The keisler Aluminum Bell is a Auto bellhousing that uses a adapter plate to convert it to the 6 speed T56 Magnum.
