Drop Spindle Question

1701 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  72chevellephil
So I’m considering adding 2” drop spindles to my 70 Chevelle that I’m currently building. I did a search of the forum and there seems to be a lot different opinions about their benefits. The car will have QA1 tubular front a arms and QA1 coilovers along with 14” Wilwood brakes. Gonna run an 18” wheel on it. What do you guys think…stick with a stock height spindle or do the drops? Car is going to have a big block in it.

I'm running drop spindles and haven't had any problem with them. When you get the QA1 setup make sure you get 0.9" taller upper ball joints and 0.5" lower ball joints to correct the crap factory geometry setup. When these a-bodies came out they specifically engineered the suspension for understeer. Adding the tall balljoints will correct that and also help eliminate bumpsteer.

I cruise, road trip, "canyon" carve, and autocross the car, everything is holding up.
