Re: 70 Restomod Coil Over Question

Where the adjuster nut sits for a given ride height depends on the spring rate. Regardless of where the nut sits the coilover shock needs to be roughly centered in its travel at ride height. It is a common misconception that coilovers deliver huge amounts of ride height adjustment. They do not. The coilover shock length needs to be selected to deliver the desired ride height.

Before you resort to coilovers I would suggest trimming the coil length.
