Re: Hotchkiss system not low enough (2" front, 1.5" back)
I run stock .750" wire , 550# springs. I did what the above is talking about, cutting 1/2 coil at a time and when you put the spring back, put the bottom coil into the control arm pocket.
I have lowering blocks in rear. If you order, might order a set of 3/4 and or 1" . You may want to try out. I doubt you would be going for anything lower due to tire.
Rearching your spring may put you too low.
Don't forget that if the front tire rub in front on the fender bolt, you can replace it with button head bolts. 1 per side.
My car stands 8" curb height at the rocker panels.
