Alright guys I moved some mounts for suspension to sit as low as possable and here are my new and hopefully final ride height measurements. 

pretty good mod if i do say so. 

front frame 26in 
rear frame  28in
frame below doors 26in
everything else the same,  should be about as stable as it can get,  the fram almost sits on the axles when bottomed out.   :conf:
