Re: 67 Front tire size
You could replace the front springs with a stiffer spring like Hocthkis (2" drop 600lb/in rate) ~$160 or Global West (1" drop) ~$150 or a stock style spring ~$80ish. The body mounts start at around $40 for rubber and go up to $100 for polygraphite or solid mounts. But you only gain maybe a 1/2" or so depending on how bad the old mounts are flattened. New shocks could help some but you might have to go stiffer. My Bilsteins for the Hotchkis kit run from $75 to $100ea, not cheap. There are the Koni shocks too. You would probably get more help from new or stiffer springs than the mounts or shocks depending on how old the springs and shocks are. Mounts are not that bad to replace, just do one side at a time and don't jack the to far up or you could push the body panels out of alignment, learned that the hard way.
