Lowering front end

Ok, I have a 69 camaro with a 502 bb in it. It also have 2" drop bb springs. Here's my problem. I had a 468 bb in the car with iron heads and a mini blower on it when I installed the 2" drop springs and the car set perfect.. Now, with the 502 without a blower and with aluminum heads the car doesn't set as low as it did before. How much of the coil should I cut off to lower it about an inch to inch and a half? I'd like to do it this weekend. thanks..

Re: Lowering front end

Thanks.... I'll try and post some pics on here unless the files are too big. If so I'll post them on my car domain webpage for all to see the final results of my modifications...
