When I bought the car at 15, someone before me had replaced the SBC with a BBC but hadn't done much else (bell crank, cross-member, frame brackets...etc) which lead to other problems but I understood why the front end sat lower (also bent sub frame) and as a kid I had a shop replace the springs with what I recall him saying were heavy duty springs which probably weren't right as well. After that the front end sat very high. Flash forward to now with a newer straight sub-frame and what are supposed to be BBC springs, the front end still sits very high. I don't dislike the look and am quite used to it but is this correct? Also, the front end is very stiff... very stiff. Just seems like it should be different. The car hasn't been driven yet since the new sub-frame/spring install. Will it maybe settle in and loosen up at some point?
