Love the patina, thought about going with that look on my 64', still not sure yet. Stance looks perfect.

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

I've got a negative camber issue on the front of my 62 - not too mention I routinely take asphalt samples with it too. (Western PA)

78 burb front end with 2 1/2" drop spindles and 3" drop coils

I bought MOOG offset upper control arm cross shafts hoping that will compensate.

any other suggestions?

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

I read somewhere on this site or thread the 1.5 coils cut would give you 4 inch drop on a 64-66. doing my 64 tore front end apart and realize the spring have a pocket or are indexed at both ends. to me you could take one coil and it would fit right. how much drop dose that give? I like what I see of 63 & 64 Bowties !.5 cut and chevelle springs in the rear and was thinking something similar as I have some station wagon rear springs w air bags or chevelle springs . help want to cut myfront springs and put front back together next few days. ( also going to belltech shocks for a droped truck ) thanks Joel

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

If I remember correctly it is 2 inches for every coil.

so when they cut 1 and a half coil the must index the top and let the bottom be where it comes out ? like what I see of people who cut 1.5 and use jeep or A body rear springs, jus not so sure about the bottom of the spring not being in the pocket or index spot??

I have cut half coils and left the bottom half not indexed and it works fine. From what I can tell the original height coils didn't sit vary well in the bucket to begin with. When I cut full coils I still couldn't get the coil to index that good.
