suspension

I have a 67 GTO that recently had the from suspension completely rebuilt. When this was done the front end is now about 1 inch lower that it use to be. Is there an easy way to raise the front end 1 inch? everything else is great, no rubbing or anything like that, I just prefer the way it sat before. As always any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably should have. The new bushings etc that you put in let the suspension bind less, so it sits a little lower.

A cheap fix are the knuckles that go inbetween the coils. It makes for a stiffer ride though depending on how many you need to get the hieght back. You can get em at your local Kragen or the like shops.

Next step up from the screw in knukle type, is the 1" rubber coil spring spacers that fit between the spring and the spring seat.

Regarding the 1" rubber coil spacer. I've never seen them, any idea where to look?

Thanks

They are available at the same types of places as the knuckles, but look like "discs" in a way. They cover a whole ring of the coil and fit in between them.
