I'm using an 8.8" in mine as well. How thick are those spacers and where did you get them?

for the money, they come in pairs, so if you need one size for the rear and one size for the front, you end up paying a decent price and can do the whole car.......

Are there any saddles/perches on the rear end where they attach to the lower control arms? The reason that I ask is that without upper control arms, I think that the rear end will want to twist under load and without something to stop it, I think that it might just succeed...
