    I want to lower the stance of my stock 69 Riviera. I don't want to slam it or anything, I just want a lower, cleaner look.

    Should I go with 1" or 2" lowering springs?

    Or...should I go 2" in the front and 1" in the rear for a little bit of a rake, or would that look stupid on an otherwise stock Riviera?

    Just wondering what other have done and if you have any photos.

    2" in front and rear.

    If it still has the factory springs, chances are it's probably lowered 1" already from them sagging. 2" seems to be a nice happy medium.

    I used 2 inch (fr) and 1 inch (rear) dropped coils in my 69 GS and I think the stance and driveability is just right for a non air ride car.
