Currently have a 1" rake from back to front on my '67. I know this is a matter of preference, but is there a range for 'correct' rake heights, before things start to look a little ridiculous?

If you guys can post pics and list the rake height from back to front, might help those looking at spring and tire heights.

Thanks!

Mine has a very slight rake to it. It has 2" lowering springs in the front and stock PSC 5 leafs in the rear that I believe are actually more like an 1 1/2" drop !

I am happy with the stance, but probably could never duplicate it without using lowering blocks and/or trimming coils !

The car currently has P235/65R15 tires all around and will get a little more rake when I get larger rear tires.

MIne is about 1.0 to 1.5 inches. I have hotchkiss rear springs and 255 60 15 tire in the rear and 235 60 15 in the front with hotchkiss springs...small block.

Many different views to see what it looks like.
