New Stance

Changed the stance on my 69. Previously had 1-1/2" drop. Now with new multi-leaf springs, front coils and gas shocks. More of an assembly line correct height/stance now. What a difference it made in the ride, much more forgiving on the road. What do you guy's think?

Re: New Stance

Perfect! I did the same recently. Replaced cut front coils with Moog 6308's and Edelbrock performance shocks with OEM replacement gas shocks. Night and day difference. No more rubs and much more pleasant ride.

Beautiful car Dom!

Beautiful car, Dom! I much prefer stock ride height over lowered cars.

No issues rubbing before or after. Thanks for the complements fellas! I do a ton of research on Team Camaro before I make any decisions. Everyone so far has been dead on for what I want. Your opinions and comments are researched by guy's like me more than you can imagine. BTW an added thanks to Hawkx66 (Dave a local guy) for going the extra mile to help me!

The leafs are from Heartbeat City, 4 leafs OE Quality. Assembly line correct.

Not sure of the rim size and to be honest with you I don't know how to tell? If anyone wants to explain I would be more than happy to measure them.
