Let's see em, low low cars/trucks WITHOUT bags!

  1. MII by Chubby Chassis, stock spindles. rear Jamco dearched springs, no blocks.

    ...lots of room to go lower if I wanted; but it is plenty low enough for a regular driver. ...just scrapes a little on speed bumps and some driveways. ...just minimal trouble at this height.

    My Pontiac was pretty dang low. Was my daily driver, and drove it across the country and back, did a lot of scrapin but looked good doing it!


    My pop's Fury is a scraper with those lakes for sure.

    And last, my man Phil drives his Chrysler all over the place, and it rides like a dream!

    You know the old saying "bags are for groceries".

    The front bumper of my truck is only about 2-3" off the ground, and I drive it regularly, on michigan roads too.:eek:

    got the torch too close to the rear springs, so we put aerostar front coils in front, and 2 sets of 1.5 inch rubber spacers to get it back up.

    This is a terrible scan,and I hate to even post it. Anyway,this is 2 or 2.5 coils off the front springs,and heated rear springs. It may not look low in the pic,but I drug the headers pretty regularly. This is from '97.

    My truck is now on 3" lowered springs in the front,and 6" in the back now. I haven't dragged anything in a long time.

    This thing is a One Ton chassis. The first thing was to ditch the 19.5 wheels, then make a front bumper (1956 chevy truck notched in rear, heated, and bent to perfection). Then take a bunch of springs out front and rear. Lowered it a good 6 to 8 inches. Actually still drives good!!!

    Thanks Fellas. AcadianKid you are dead on. I bought the car from Steve and Kyle out of Indy. It was love at first sight, when I saw it in an issue of NOVA magazine. The front has AFCO coilovers and rear are mono-leafs. The suspension travel is very small. It is as low as you can get with out being a complete pain in the ass. Speed bumps are out of the question. Since I bought, I have: reworked the exhaust for more ground clearance, put a fatter cam in with air-gap intake, removed the powerglide and put in a Richmond 5-speed w/ hydraulic throwout (great move).

    I am always thinking of changing it up a little, but always come to the same answer...don't touch it. It looks perfect as it is. Big ups to Kyle and Steve, they built / designed a classic. The only thing is a set of 15" black steelies, big and littles, with optional dog dish caps.

    a few Pics:



    Here is a short video with the new cam:
