Re: Lowering Rear Stance
there's a ton of information using search here and at pro-touring.com
I have 1" blocks in mine now. The concern as I understand it, is for the block to increase the distance between the rearend and the spring. Under high torque this might increase the rate of failure in this area. (bad thing).
Most people think a 1" block is the most you want to go.
I used blocks from AFCO. They make them in 1" and 0.5". (probably others) Summit sells them individually. So don't screw up and order just one like I did *lol*
If you need more drop, you might consider lowering springs from Hotchkis, DSE or Global West and others. Or.... you can have your new springs de-arched by a local spring shop. They'll have to be out of the car to be de-arched.
1968 that started life and a 6 banger with a PG. Now it's a 350 with a TKO600, Moser 12 bolt, Speedtech LCA/UCA, ATS Tall Spindles, Hotchkis Springs, Forgeline ZX3P, C5 (Kore3) brakes with other cool stuff from Ron Davis, Vintage Air and soon to be Terminator EFI.
