Determining enough clearance....

Is there a way that i can see if my frame sliders are far out enough to protect the engine cases?
I picked up the T-Rex sliders and am already in the process of moving them to the frame (drill and install with a full threaded rod), but seeing that i have to move them up, and in, I'm worried about having enough clearance for the engine cases.

thanks for the help,

Grab a sheet of plywood or something long, tall and flat as such, place it against your tires, then tilt up. Whatever hits first is what will hit the pavement first, etc.

Blahahaha!!! thanks, that made my day from a crummy day of work

My plan to use the threaded rod has got me second guessing...I can't tell what the grade is. I'd like to use grade 8 but I can't find anything long enough.
Wish there was metal shops around my area. the hardware store is proving it's limits.

Goog's, thank you for the much needed input. I knew the pivot point was from the tires, but for some dumb reason, I kept telling myself it wasn't
Do you recall what you used to fasten your sliders?

Mine was a threaded bolt all the way through the frame, but it came with the Motovation sliders. Not sure what grade.
