I know this has probably been talked about a thousand times already, but I'm kinda new on here. I need to know how low I can go on my ride height and not mess up the front end geometry. I have an '81 Regal and my tires are 255/60's. This is for a dirt track. Thanks---D21

on the front in I never go any lower than 3 to 4 inches of clearance between the top of lower a arm kind of were it bulges up on the back of the arm An the bottom of the frame close too the spring pocket I have the same frame you do but proably different spring rates. Hope that can help if ya know what I mean other than that I could tell ya my ride hights from the ground too the car but we would have to measure in the same spot on both cars.

Thanks guys, that helps. I'm running the 9 1/2 " tall springs, and the hidden adjusters, so I can lower it down pretty far. My only thing was that I didn't want to go too far and run into problems with the suspension bottoming out, or not working right. Thanks again--D21

D21,you have to watch getting your left front to low,at about 6 1/2" my lower control arm bottoms out on the frame,so i'f you get below 7" you might keep a eye on it.
