couple of 74 XR7 Q's
Or maybe just one Q to start...I'm obtaining a 74 XR7, 400ci 4-v auto, in pretty good shape, but in need of some shadetree TLC. So I'll be replacing the master cylinder, all the usual tune-up parts including plug wires and stuff, new shocks and I need to look at the suspension bushings, etc. It has cheap ugly steel "mag" wheels (the 10-spoke kind) and I want to replace 'em with Cragar 5-spoke chrome mags and BFG Radial T/As, just like when I was a kid in the 70s. Does anybody know the proper bolt circle/offset for the 74 XR7? I think I'd like to go with 8" rims all around...
Okay, a second Q. What's the recommended way of lowering it all around, like an inch or 2? If it's lowered that much, will stock-size KYG shocks work, or will I need some wierd size?
