Cool Lowering 2nd Gen Camero

Which is a better way to lower the front end of my '75 Camero and still keep the ride geometry 1) 2" drop spindles or 2) cut the springs a few coils? Also what about header and exhaust clearance. Do I need to use block header and new piping?

I like the spindles BUT, you are going to run into header trouble. The headers on that camaro are low I've taken headers and made them shorter so there is better ground clearance. Or you can call Sanderson Headers they make a shorty header. Let me know how you turn out. I'm not far from you

They are all right, go with the spindles. get some blockhugger headers, or the ones from henderson, or you could make your own. I have a rat '72 and I put the spindles on and made my own headers. Also unless your going nostalgia, look into some 17" rims and tires, 17x11's on the rear look amazing, and enhance grip dramatically.
