Excellent write-up.
Posting all the "lowering stats" with your pic, helps a bunch.
Keep them coming!

The poor man's drop:

Torsion bars backed off in the front

TJ springs with pneumatic shocks in the rear.

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

Thanks, I was hoping it sat a little lower in front but it should make a good driver.

I think once you get the bumper on and get it all trimmed out and it settles a bit she'll be just right...

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

Here is my 61.

Front tortion bars turned down a little. Bump stops removed and there is about an inch gap there.
Rear springs: cut coils. Not sure now much was cut off. PO did it. Its on bags in the rear now, but the pic is with the coils in.
Tires: 215/70/15

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

62 short step, you listed sway bar brackets for lowered trucks. I have 2" springs and 2.5" drop spindles and a sway bar that I have not installed yet. Will I need special brackets for the sway bar?

What size tires are you running?

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

Here's the only two pictures of the new static drop i did,have no clue how much drop? its all stock with cut springs front and back, waiting for my basic bolt in c-notch to arrive and the back will be lowered a little more, the rear camero sway bar bolts to the top of axle so its losing a couple inchs of potential drop with that setup.....
