I'm getting ready to build a new small block that I'll more than likely use aluminum heads on. Problem I see is that I just got finished rebuilding the front end and used the Hotchkis 2 inch drop springs and like the height I'm at right now. Should I assume the weight diff. between my current iron heads and the "to be" alum. heads will be enough to bring the front end up a bit. Anybody experience this in their Camaro evolution? Should I add p.s and AC!

the difference should be negligable.
a/c and p/s are nice to have though.

I doubt you'll be able to notice any difference that you might encounter. Also, the springs may settle a little over time anyway.
