Question on lowering

I have a question regarding lowering springs, I bought the lowering kit from cpp 2 up front and 5 in the back. But for a 5 inch drop it still looked too high. So I recently c notched it and put 2 inch lowering blocks so it total it should be a 7 inch in the back. The prime red picture is just on 5 inch spring and when itís painted itís with the c notch and 2 inch blocks. I want to know why you guys think? I know CPP has a tendency to misbox items cause itís happened to me multiple times

Re: Question on lowering

Here's a couple of pics of my 68 with 7" lowering in the rear, 5" springs and 2" lowering blocks from CPP for comparison. 15" ralleys and 275/60 tires. Also the front is lowered 5 1/2", dropped spindle and 3"drop spring. Personally I think you should drop the front some more for a better look.

Yours looks great. Thereís no engine or tranny in it yet so Iím waiting when I put that in on how it will sit up front if not Iím going with the 3 inch spring up front since I have a 2 1/2 drop spindle.

Re: Question on lowering

I didn't realize you had no engine in there yet. That's why it is sitting higher. Sorry bout that.

Re: Question on lowering

You're on the right track. Get the weight back in it and add the 3 in. springs up front. Mine is a 5.5 and 7 drop. Build On.

Re: Question on lowering

3/4" drop

3" front springs with 3" rear springs and a 1" block. Rides nice.

Re: Question on lowering

I wouldn't mess with anything else until you get the drivetrain in. Until then, you're just guessing.
