Mike, I purchased a set of new rear springs from you for my 1967 GTO and when I put them in the car leaned to the driver’s side about 3/4 of an Inch. The lean was there with the old springs but I thought the new springs would level it out. I even switched the […]
Mike, I have a 1970 Firebird, Fiberglass fenders, hood and nose piece, no fender wells and the battery in the trunk. So I have lightened up the front end by about 175 – 200 Lbs. The car now sits up high in the front and what I want is for it to sit 2″ lower […]
Q -Mike, I just bought a ’54 Chevy 2 door. It has 3″ lowering blocks and is – in my opinion- exactly 1″ too low in the back. I’m really not a bubble gum things together kind of guy and I believe, in most cases, lowering blocks are a version of Bazooka Engineering. Agree? Aluminum […]

Q -Mike, I have a Riviera that I want lowered about 2 Inches in the rear. You don’t make lowered springs for this car, something about not enough demand. So what I want to do is cut the coils. Is this alright? Frank from Seattle A -Frank, in a lot of cases it is fine […]
Does cutting a coil change the spring rate?
Mike, I cannot believe I finally found a spring expert! I have read all your tech articles and thank you very much for sharing your knowledge. Now for my question – Can you take an existing spring, stretch it and then shorten it to get a stiffer spring rate while keeping the car at the […]
