well its time for the winter rebuild. i am lowering it hopefully have it around 4in exactly to the ground, its a 1988 craftsman with a 12 hp techumshin but i might get a twin. if the funds come. i am not 100% sure what class i want to build for but i will be doing a engine to jackshaft to transaxle on this mower. i am getting hubs within a week or two and then rims and tires. ill update when i have done work. i think i might build it for pro-x(dont want to i dont have the $$$) or sportsman if i get a flatty(which i think im going to do)

i just looked down my frame and it looks bent. i measured and it was around 3 3/4 inches off. will this be a hassle when i finish building it? it was a superstock but im moving up a class. so im worried about with the front axle and the transaxle and the jackshaft mounting up correctly.
