I've posted a plethora of pictures of my car on this forum. I get asked often about how my car is lowered etc.. For years I used the original old springs with 2" blocks and SSM bars. It looked great but rode very stiff. I never really liked the blocks either. So, I decided to change up the rear suspension and I ordered some "2 1/2-3" " dropped rear springs from Cliff's Classic Chevrolet (one of our sponsors). I also bought his traction bars so the ride wouldn't be so rigid. I can say, the car sits within 1/2" of where it was before, but now it rides great. I did a little "line lock" stress-test this evening and the bars seem to work OK too. So, if any of you are using 2" blocks, you might consider doing the lowered springs. I believe the upgrade was well worth it.
