I like this look.
What suspension mods does it have?
Looks like 24 on that B-body; most likely no mods would have been required. I put 26s on mine with no mods in the beginning.
The wheel arch on the B-body has a great arc and is well suited for larger wheels..
The Regal, MC, & GP are about the same. The Cutlass, Malibu, & Elco didn't get them.
Coilover shocks in back, and new gas shocks in front with twist in knuckles. I think this was a v6 car originally because even with the new v8 shocks the sag in the front was terrible.
Had the actual springs been replaced those twist-in blocks wouldn't have been needed. The springs will still need replacing as those twist-in blocks are meant to be a temporary fix and they tend to pop out over time as the springs continue to wear out.
It was temporary just to throw the rims on, however... Ive never had an issue with the knuckles and have seen them last 10 years or more. When I worked for Rent a wheel it was one of the few things corporate allowed to use to on installations. They had strict corporate standards being a national chain and all. We weren't even allowed to install lug nuts with an impact gun, everything had to be hand tightened with a torque wrench to manufacturer specs.
