you need to cut the oil pan or put a ridiculous amount of lift to clear it.
go to "check my rear's up front" in project research and build up.

pull the oil pan off but first mark where it is hitting and look on the inside and see if there will be any clearance problems with hammering it in you will loose oil capacity going that route but hey ya gotta do what ya gotta do

I guess thats why you can move your axle 3 1/3 inches forward on the springs with there hysteer , those hysteer arms must be pretty tall

Just checking to see if you have had any luck..i slighlty bent my tie rod and whapped the pan a few times, I have about 2 inches from the pan to rod, and that is at full compression

3.0 T100 oil pans supposedly have less drop to the front of them, and bolt up to the 3.0 minitruck motor no problem. Also, as for steering contact issues, I found that if you used the older style crossover steering arms, and mounted the lower end of your drag link to the bottom side of the passenger arm (same part of the arm that the draglink normally bolts into, just under instead of on top), you will actually gain a bit more clearance than high steer arms offer.
