Re: Affordable options to lower a 69 Camaro?
The cheapest way to lower the front is cutting the coils. This increases spring rate some.
Many have reported no negative effect on ride quality. The better option is to replace the
coils. I really like the idea of the Ridetech progressive rate coils as SoCal805 mentioned
and he has first hand experience. Using a lowering block on the rear is the cheapest there
also. I personally wouldn't drop more than 2" front or rear. You're decreasing the amount of
suspension travel and can lead to bottoming out problems. Measure the distance between the
bump stop and frame and you'll see how much travel there is now. Now decrease that by the
amount of drop. You'll get the idea. Also be aware when using blocks on the rear you'll be
changing the drive line angle and that can lead to vibration and possibly worn u-joints. So you
will likely need to address that also. Generally that is corrected with angled shims on the axle
mounts. You must have finally found a car. Tell us about it.
