    Coil and a half on the original springs, so Father Time and gravity helped a bit.

    53 Chevy with IFS up front and posies with a 2" block in the rear. Not traditional for sure, but pretty darn civilized for a 61 year old pickup that I drive every day.

  17. 1938 Plymouth P6.......rears are Posies Super Slide 3" lowering springs-left the shortest leaf (about 12"), removed the next 2 leafs & added 1" blocks. Fronts are custom new leaf springs.....took about 3 times to fit the car, but were still too high, so I removed 2 leafs.

    EDIT:running 6.00-16 bias ply tires.

    I like this thread idea.

    This has a 4" drop axle + 4" front sweep and 12" rear Z + 4" Channel + 6" chop. Still has 6" of ground clearance but roof ends at top of my belly (I'm 5'8")

    [​IMG]

    This has 3" drop coils in the front and 4" drop coils in the rear with 2" blocks. The frame was c notched and the shocks relocated. I used Monroe shocks for a ranger.

    Up front, dropped uprights (2.5 inches ) and aerostar coils (another 2.5 inches)
    In back, 4 inch blocks installed, and 2 short leafs removed from the spring pack.

    Also, I raised the driveshaft tunnel, and installed a Gambino notch for the possibility of an air bag install.

    Originally it was 4" in the front via cut coils. They were totally bagged out though and rode like garbage. I put in new aerostar van coils which brought it up 1" for the 3" (front) and 4"(rear) it's at now. I prefer a little "reverse rake" and am happy with how it sits.

    Hoppy, your coupe looks slick.
