So I keep looking at the 96 parked nose to nose with my 77 and it is just to damn high off the ground!
My 77 is slammed in the front cheaply done when I was younger by cutting the coils.
So now that I look at the front this car and its goin to need some front end work I figguer "lets go for the gusto"
If Any one has sugjestions on kits or company's to look at that would be great thx

Moog 5662 up front. Refer to my avatar or my build thread. Or Jim's (boojum) mass state trooper car. Or crovos (toomanytoyz) caddy.

For the rears, I don't think we've come up with anything yet. I use Suspension Techniques rear lowering springs. I also have on hand stock ss springs and PPM autox springs.

If you want to drop $$$ just get the eibach set or the hotchkis set.

There's other alternatives like Canucks etc

I got my Moog's from Amazon for 56 bucks shipped, so look there, too. Smile

I like the way the car rides with the Eibach SS rear springs. I just happened to score a rear pair real cheap on the big board.

Here's a pic of the setup...



The moogs lowered mine about 3" in front. I'd expect a little less than that on a caprice.
