Sorry, no pics yet, need a couple more weeks. Currently installing UMI stage 4 on a 69 chevelle convertible. Fronts in but I don't have the 12 bolt buttoned up yet after a gear change. Hope to have it back on its wheels soon.

Excuse my cluelessness. What will this do?

With aftermarket control arms you can shim the springs…. Doesn't work so well with the factory fronts…..

No cluenessness here! The SPC lower control arms are designed to raise/lower the car height. There is an aluminum spacer that sits in the bottom of the spring pocket and the spring rests on top of that. You can also add 1/4" steel rings to raise the car even further, or remove all of it for a much lower stance. I talked to Mark Savitske at SC&C to make sure I got the height I was looking for. These arms give a great deal of adjustment, I have them on my '65 Malibu SS and my '68 Z-28 Camaro. They work great.
