Lowered suspension

Hey All,
I am new to this forum and wanted to say hi. I am starting on a 1960 corvette basket case that has been in my garage for two years and in someone else's for ever. The frame has been sandblasted and painted and restoration has begun. I don't like the way the body sits on the frame and would like to lower it. With all of the new items out there, what would be the best way to go??? I have seen independant newer corvette front suspensions that will bolt on and I have seen drop axles. The bottom line is that I want the car to have a low look to it. I am not driving across the country with this thing, just from the stop light to the speed limit as fast as 400 horsepower can get me.

I would like to WELCOME YOU here ...

One problem with getting Corvettes lower is rubbing the fiberglass fenders ...

This 62 Corvette belongs to a friend and it is not that LOW ...
Pay close attention to the offset on your wheels ... or the tires will do this to your fiberglass ...

Thanks for the info. I have found some drop spindles for the front and will see what tire and wheels do next. For the rear there is not much except for some blocks for the leaf springs. I am not in a great hurry.
