After installing some Speedway brand leaf springs in my Camaro, the rear end is high enough to make it look like it's ready to go down the quarter mile!
The arch is about 6.5" unloaded just like the specs say. I don't have any ballast installed, but two guys on the bumper lowers the car maybe an inch or two. I need at least four inches to level the car properly.

I will be installing some Landrum springs on my team mate's car and they look like they will give the same result.

Four inch lowering blocks don't seem to be a good solution. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Larry

You can get a set of asphalt leaf spings which are 1.5" lower arch.

69-er With your car setting on floor what is the measurement from floor to bottom chassis and from floor to center of front spring eye? Also what is the measurement from floor to rear spring eye? Do you know what spring rate your springs are?
