Not bad, but maybe get the tire a little higher up? Looks a little low.

Double sprung in the back huh?

i was messing arround with the placement of the tire with it at various heights,,,it sits natural in its spot ,,,the dual springs are only to compensate the extra weight the rim and tire added to the rear,,,i ran it with a single spring and it sagged real bad ,,so on went the second spring and poof,,all fixed
