Paid for the new shoes to be put on. Love the look, just need to adjust the stance. I still have the 2 inch drop spindles and 1 inch rear drop springs to install.

Looks pretty good the way it sits to me. Are sure you want to lower it?

may not have been today, but thanks to dr442 and spidereyes, I'm a little closer to my T5 setup in the Regal... got my pedal setup, and 2 bellhousings(never know when you need a spare, or if you want to convert a second car over!)

I keep looking at it, and I honestly dont know. I could use the extra money and just put it towards something else. I like the way it sits, I just wanted the fender to sit a little over the top of the tire. Maybe im doing too much tho.

an inch lower would be killer but let it settle first, maybe it will fall into place

I think it sits good. How are the roads were you live? Are you planning on driving it a lot? If it is a show car, slam it. If it is a driver, leave it a lone. I put two inch drop spindles on my car and it lowered it three inches. Now it is too low! Looks of the wheel are off to me. Too far up in the arch of the fender. It is your car so do whatever makes you happy!

I talked to my wife about it. She said dont mess with it. Im in Northern Va so potholes everywhere. I could use the 300 i spent on the spindles and springs to get new carpet and some speakers. Maybe get the lower door panels with the speaker holes.

I'd recommend putting the drop spindles up front and the lowering springs in the rear. Chances are the spindles will cause the back to come up a hair as it will shift some weight forward. Alternatively, another inch off the front springs will be a good compromise.

With all that said it does look great!

Nothing lately. Just been lazilly drifting around to and from work. I'm at the point now, where all I have to do is just keep up on regular maintenence items. Oil, plugs, bumpers, etc. I don't need any ultra mega rare junkyard parts, I have a good motor, the best g body rear end, a th350 that shifts like a modern car, t type wheels, good tires, all new brakes, etc. Only things it really needs are purely cosmetic.
