I'm sorry, I forgot to mention it has a Mustang 2 front end. & my coil over shocks adjust from the bottom, & the adjustment is screwed almost all the way up.

MARTINSR I'm sorry, I have to ask this question, where is the adjustment nut at the top of the shock or the bottom?



On the above photo the shock on the right screwing the adjustment nut "all the way to the top" would LOWER the car.

The one on the left screwing the adjustment nut "all the way to the top" would RAISE the car. Let's just be sure we are on the same page here.

35WINDOW Do you know if it has dropped Spindles on it? Tha is a typical modification, and if it does, you could go back to "standard" Spindles which would raise it up-whose front end is it?
