Opinion on stance

Hello All,


Just looking for opinions on the stance of my 70. Think I got it right or do I go a little lower? I have 1" drops on the rear, could go to 2 and have coilovers on the front with a little more adjustment left.


Leave it, or drop it a little more ?


Thanks,


Pat

Re: Opinion on stance

Thanks guys!! I really appreciate it. I thought it looked good too but I always second guess everything I do. Just like the wheels, debated forever if I should with the grey or polished, as soon as I bolted these on I thought ...hmmm wonder if it would have looked better with the polished

It will look a little nicer once I get some bigger Wilwoods all the way around her.


Thanks again..

Pat

Re: Opinion on stance

In the left pic, the car looks level or a little nose-high. In the right pic, the stance looks pretty good, although the overall ride height looks kinda high,still.

Might be because the driveway is pitched a bit.

I have to agree with Clint on this one. To much gap over the tire in front but if you bring the front down more I think the back will have to come down a bit too.

Re: Opinion on stance

I'd leave it if it mine. But since its yours, do what you want and don't worry about others think. Life is too short to worry about getting "likes".
