Yes itll raise the rate & lower the car. A stiffer shock may work, but not longer. Not without careful measurements to make sure that it wouldn't bottom out the shock. What about taller bump-stops?

Raised rate, similar or slightly higher front end height (depending on thickness vs distance between coils).

Look into Q-A1 shocks and springs for a mustang 2 style front end . Or on the least , lower the mounting point on the lower control arm if you use the vett shocks . So you can keep the lower arm as straight as possible to be level to the ground . Stock car parts stores have up to 1200 Lbs springs . About to take the rear end to the shop to put in new mounting points , disc brake mounts and new arms , and yes , I will check the pinion angle . But I'm not shure on the type of tubes on the lower arms , round or square .

Default I'm sorry .

I'm putting in a different motor all together . I miss the power . A friend took me for a ride in his new modifid Zo6 , and yea , it did feel slower then any 460 I ever had , just saying . I'll do the rest of the car info at Pro-Touring .com and (heres were I lose a lot of you ) diyelectriccar.com . It will make more sence later . They do smog in Las Vegas so I can't put a 460 in my other 96 car . The car will be lighter and should be very fast . And it should cost me same to finish it . At least when I compare prices of parts .

Two jobs can slow down any build . but the electric motor is in an running . The whole motor and battery is the weight of the trany and fuel tank .
