I have QA1 coilovers and I was wondering how low I'll be able to go with this setup on tubular control arms. I was considering drop spindles, but it sounds like that isn't a good option based on what I'm reading here. Can you guys post some pics of your QA1s on 17's so I can get an idea on ride heighth?I think I would go with springs over spindles, seen to many posts about the bad effects of drop spindles. If you do a search for drop spindles there are few posts about the topic. I went with a qa-1 adustable coil over conversion kit, its a little more than just springs but sometimes 2 inchs is to much etc... and this kit lets me get the ride height i want upto a 2' drop.
Drop Spindles are not the best choice for lowering a car, they can affect turning and handling in a negative way. A better method for stance and handling is to lower the car using geometry corrected A-arms along with lowering springs. That way the car will sit right and handle well. Even just springs and bars will give the car a good solid stance and improve handling... and when you're ready you can upgrade with additions like a-arms.If I want to lower the front end of my 69, what is the best way to accomplish this - 2" drop spindles or 2" drop springs? I have no experience with either, so you guys that have tried them what works best and why?
