I bought this project car this summer with no engine and trans. I put the engine in it two weeks ago and plan to get it running this weekend. Only problem is the last owner slammed it. It has 3 inch lowering blocks in the back and not sure what he did to the front. I like the low look but with 15x7 Magnum 500s wheels it it rubs the fenders. So I would like to sit low but no quite so low. It is a 352 auto. Any recomdations of which new springs to use and how much to cut off. Thanks!

3" in the back usually means about 1.5 coils in the front.

i would start off cutting 3/4's of a coil. See how it sits and go from there

i bought some $80 springs from autozone, they seem fine only had em in for a few months though

I will measure it tomorrow.

Im running 14's with 195/75/14 tires, i like it low

I cut 1.5 coils

If you figure that 1.5 coils is around 3"s of drop, if you wanna drop it 1.5"s then cut 3/4's off the coil
