C5 based uprights

Just finished up installing a updated suspension. SPC uppers, +.500 Howe upper ball joints from SC&C.
Uprights are CCP c5’s
Hubs are c7 skf trackers. C5 calipers and rotors are from rock auto raybestos. Still need to setup a alignment. I used a SPC camber castor gauge to eyeball it. +5* castor and -.75* camber.
I measured the ccp uprights and they are 8.25 inches from mounting surface. That’s why I went with the +.5 ball joints. The tie rod ball joints are nearly inline with the lower control are joints with the stock steering arms. Total cost was around $1000
Mainly the skf c7 hubs. Before and after photos attached.

Good question, I was wondering the same thing.

70 1/4 inches is what I’m reading from the outside edges of the tires
