i need help kinda lost

hey guys,

i just put a 79 front end on my 68 chevy frame to get 5 lug power steering and power brakes it bolted up amazingly but now im wondering how to drop it a few inches dont want the low rider look but want the muscle car stance .. can i achieve this by the drop springs ? or will it affect the handling because the spindles are stock height or can it be done just by the spindles or does it need both ? thanks in advance

Drop spindles are the best way.

There are enough comprimises in a stock steering/suspension system that if you were to keep the rake at 1" or less, a spring change and realignment would be sufficient and get you by I would think. Dropped spindles are still the best way.
