I have a 69 camaro that I installed lowering springs. My question is will regular shocks work on a 2" drop in the rear? I have some old kyb shocks and they seem to bootom out when i tried to install them. On the other hand i had these shock for a while and they could be bad.. They got rained on...
Thanks

Should work... personally I'd just get some new one's. To add to that if you want to really make it nice, give hotchkis a call about their revalved bilsteins for lowered cars. Mine are nice!

If you bottom out your shocks won't last. What i did after putting on 2" dropped Hotchkis was to make sure at ride height the shocks were about 60% from full extension.
