    I am rebuilding my entire chassis (series 62 Club Coupe) and have bought a set of 2 inch lowered leafs for the rear.
    I know coils, for the front, can be ordered the same way, but they cost a fortune to ship to Denmark :(

    I also know that for the shoebox Ford, if you put in a set of Ford Aerostar front coils that lowers it appr. 2 inches.
    Is there a similar knowledge out there for the '49 Caddy?

    Come on Caddy guys :)

    Thank you!

    I don't have any experience specifically with Cadillacs, but a cheap alternative you can always try is to cut a half coil at a time off the stock set and see how much it drops you. Could hold you over until you find a better solution.
