Rain expected all weekend here so probably be rained out. I got off work early today and started in on the front. I removed two inches of the bumper shock extensions and welded the mounts back on. I then made the slots wider for the bumper mounting studs so the bumper would go higher up. I'm going to shorten the ends of the bumper also to get a better fit and not have to use the bumper fillers. I absolutely love the tucked look of the front now especially with the later model header panel.
That's a good idea, I might have to do shorten my bumper shocks, too, the bumper fillers (especially the rear) on mine are all nasty. I got rear ended in my old wagon in Chicago, which pushed the bumper in so you couldn't see the rear bumper filler, I might just do that again :-P

Reason: Added more info
Got dark on me but got a few tack welds on before I ran out of mig wire. After raising the front bumper, the front fenders hung down past it. I hated the cornering lamps anyway so this was an easy fix! I still got to fab up a small filler piece where I seperated it.
