    Cut the front coils 2 turns, step notched the rear of the frame and flattened out the leaf spring pack, I am running original sized Firestone tires 7.60-15's, that's about as low as I can go because of the tire size, those things are huge

    Here's my beater. Front is turned down torsion bars and 25" tall tires. The rear could stand to be lower and I may bag it sometime.

    The frame rail immediately following the front wheels is about 3" off the ground. Fortunately it is the lowest part of the car. I do sometimes drag on speed bumps.

    Maybe it doesn't seem really low? The crossmember sits directly in the middle of the front wheels... fortunately.

    Not so low in the back but I could step on the front bumper and crush a beer can laying under it.

    Pic by Kustom52... the car is long gone. No bags, rubbed everywhere, but handled like a race car (bias plys screaming for mercy at 70mph in the corners).

    Pre flames on MII front blocks and dearched springs in back no notch about 2" between axle an frame. Is it just me or is the frame real flat in the back on these fleetlines?

    Running with airshocks. No bags.[​IMG]
     
  28. 3" springs and 2" blocks in the rear (soon to be 3" blocks), notched rear cross member and 2" cut stock spindles (for now... not low enough!)

    Great thread...lets see more inspirations!

    from nowhere...


    Yeah man! I like '59's, too....looks like it was a neat one. I want some pinners for mine for when I get bored.
    The front frame section at the cowl area is MUCH lower than the rockers...it makes it pretty hard to get 'em to look too low without a bunch of work.
    It's my daily beater, so...not looking for a major project. I have enough of them already!
    I like 'em low and "natural", anyway...
