You obviously didn't read what I wrote Greg. Read it again. Drop spindles and lower the rear. You can set it back if necessary. I hope you lower it low enough to rub your balls on the pavement.
Thats so funny lol! lol!

I'm going to be using a 4" narrowed beam, 2.5" dropped spindles and 1 outer spline in the rear. I want it lowered but not slammed. And I will be using a spare beam, not my original. Anything I change or modify on this car will be able to be put back to stock easily. I don't like modifications beyond repair.

(But let's all make Kyle think that I'm chopping the top and making the doors open up "suicide style" Laughing )








it'll be soooo funny!

Saw some drop spindles on craigslist for 80.00 unused.

I saw that. They're off of a '65 though (Link Pin) and I need Ball Joint style.

Where is the trunk?

Is that the same as "Under the bonnet'?

I hate to say this but I raised my car today. I was sick of zero clearance. When I was turboed I did not have a normal exhaust tons of ground clearance not now. Mondo was not happy.

I have to admit that my '64 was a little too low for me even. It looked cool as hell but I shredded a pine cone on West Capitol Ave for God's sake! That's too low for me!
