Re: Slightly lower

Wouldn't be afraid to go 2" and 4" with springs only.
Did it to my '67 step side and it looks great. Check my profile for a picture as I cannot download any from my current site.

Re: Slightly lower

Check Early Classic Enterprises website. They have pics of various levels of lowering.

Re: Slightly lower

Thanks for input and pic...I was hoping to keep natural rake and avoid leveling.

Re: Slightly lower

If you want to keep the rake, lower both ends the same amount. You need to keep in mind also, your current springs may be sagging and the new springs could actually raise it.

Re: Slightly lower

Here's my '68 with a 1-2 drop using CPP Springs

Iit is subtle, to say the least. This was the day after the springs were installed.
I think it might have settled out and dropped maybe another 3/4 inch, but I don't have any more recent pics.

Re: Slightly lower

I did a 2/4 static. Got the coils and track bar from Early Classic Enterprise. They’re solid quality. Great customer service also. I like the drop.
