54 chevy with mustang2 front end

I have a 54 Chevy and installed a mustang 2 front end in it. I did not want it to be low in the front so I did not use the drop spindles in it. My problem is it is still to low . How can I pic the front end so it is not to low it hits the ground when I go over any bumps in the road ???????

If you didn't use dropped spindles it shouldn't be that low. It sounds you may have used springs that are a little too soft.

One question, are the lower "A" arms level with the ground? If they aren't the springs are most likely your problem.

I there any way of telling what size the springs are? I remember telling the guy I order from that I did want a heavy spring but that does not mean it is what he sent ?
