    I'm deciding whether or not to change the stance of my Caddy. I was wondering if anyone out here has lowered their 50-53 Caddies and what the results were. Photos would be good here. I have a four door so it must be tasteful with no rake.

    On my 55 (yes a little different) i have 2 coils whacked up front, dearched and 4" blocks out back. Still building it but the rear end sits on the bump stops. Great ride height but I gotta make clearance happen.

    FWIW, see my Avatar, I used a '77 Seville front clip, and 4" blocks in the back for an almost total 4inch drop all around. Rides great but had to use shorter bump stops.
