    Default lowering 75 skylark

    hello, I am in the midst of order some parts for my skylark, looking to do some big changes in the spring ( finally get my cowl hood put together that I bought last year, finally fix the motor, and finally mount my bigger tires with cragars on the car) but I am now considering lowering the car since I want to put new springs all around. bell tech sells 1" lowering springs for the rear for almost 200 bucks a side, but summit sells a 2" pair for almost 190$. has anyone used either of these springs? also looking to buy the st springs that will lower the front 1" https://www.summitracing.com/parts/stq-68120 if anyone has used any of these products please let me know how they worked for you. and any advice on some problems that you ran into while lowering your car. and of coursse id love to see some pictures of it!!

    thank you

    I've tried looking it up from the nova site but it seems that our style car is not one of the more popular cars to lower. but im still looking!

    they make a rear leaf that is flatter. Camaros use the same leaf iirc.
