OK guys....
what rear springs do I need to slam my ride height,
I just ordered the wolf adj spring mounts, and 10" 150lb springs, I also have 315/60/15 tires going on this setup, rear end narrorowed 3 3/4". I would like to see the bottom of front rear rocker pannel about 4-5" off the ground.
Did I order what I needed?? cause I was told if I get 8" springs when I jack up the car and let the rearend down the springs will fall out.:D

If you adjust the rear with the 10" springs it will go pretty low, I would say with a 28" tire you can get it about 25 3/4 - 26" off the ground from the rear fender to the ground.

To lower the front I would get the 2" dropped spindles, you can just adjust the front spring to lower it but you'll bottom out the shock easy that way.

Make sure the shocks aren't going to be too long with the rear that up in the body. With the tire you are gonna run that's actually a 30 inch tall if I remember right, you're probably gonna have to cut out the body so the rear doesn't hit it like crazy and refab that. I assume the car is already minitubbed so that won't be an issue, make sure the rear isn't gonna hit the frame rails too, when you get the rear that high up it may be a problem.

I'll tell you right now DO NOT buy a 36" tub to mini tub it and think you're going to lower the car with a 30" tire. I did the same thing and cut them out. Get a 40" tub and it will look exactly like this and saves a lot more weight.

I took 90 pounds off the rear of my car doing it like this.

Yes the 10" springs work good but if you lower it a lot you'll want to go with a shorter shock. Also you'll need to watch rear end to gas tank clearance and the pinion and torque arm hitting. I have tons of photos hit me up.
