The stance looks really good...I wouldnt mess with it unless your looking to improve the handling and and how the car rides. As old as the car is the springs have settled a lot. One thing you run into using drop springs is that you will reduced your suspension travel. New springs will definatly stiffen the ride compared to the old springs and bring the car back up a bit maybe. I lowered a 1990 GMC pickup and used 2" lowering springs in the front. Man did I regret doing that. The handling and suspension travel were crap. The next truck I did I used drop spindles which keeps the amount of travel the same...just lowers the vehicle. Just remember...align the car after you make any changes. Good luck!!
