ideas? 61 dodge with leaf springs. Thanks.
sand bags in the trunk?
lots of ways.
We've got lowering blocks on the Grandpa' Car. They work OK, I'd prefer something else, but I gotta' go with what's free...
De-arching. Reverse the eyelet's. Lowering block's. Aftermarket leaves ($$!!). How low, and how much dough?
I am shooting for the tail dragging look, I will try some blocks thanks.
Get a FAT girlfriend and make her ride in the back
fat girlfriends cost more than a couple parking blocks set in the trunk; they eat too damn much.
3" lowering blocks and air shocks adjusted all the way down. Give's my rear end the tail drag look without dragging. until I can afford to bag it, i'll be satisfied with the way i have it set up now.
Let's see. It's fifty years old. Okay, give it a few more days and it will drop by itself. Anyways, when I was fifty was when mine dropped.
Blocks are cheap and easy....
Drive up to it with a backhoe and drop the bucket on the trunk lid and pick up the front of the tractor.
Fat twins are usually used to get it right down to the ground. Can't get much lower than that.
Blocks are probably the easiest way.
That reminded me when i was in the school.There was a guy,who had a really small mazda and a really fat girlfriend.
That girl got a nickname,lowering kit.Guess why?
"Look,there that guy comes and he got lowering kit with him!!"
Anyway,there are many ways to get your ride lower,but you probably have to notch the frame,if you want it really low.
Cheaper to buy their clothes than Feedem
Lots and lots of batteries. Fill the trunk, that is true traditional low rider there.
Otherwise there have been some other more plausible methods already mentioned.
Run 13's on the back.
Get rid of the leafs and weld the rear end to the frame humps.
