I love that front suspension. Very trick looking!

Meanwhile, a notch was cut in the lower front crossmember for the alternator and air conditioning compressor clearance.

The A/C compressor mounts low on an LS engine, and it is not adjustable as it mounts solidly to the block. We needed space for ours.









The inside structure was reinforced while the cutout was opened.

Next, we had to make a bracket to keep the A/C compressor and belt happy.





We’ve changed the compressor to a Sanden unit and made the belt tension adjustable.









Now it all fist tightly to the block and still in the down-low position.

Alternator fit on the other side.



We moved the passenger side motor plate back a scoshe to make room for the compressor as well.







This will be reinforced to handle the load.
