    Thanks Vince, But these only give more suspension travel, as they bolt on the top wishbone.

    but they allow longer springs and spacing the lower wishbone pivot down to give more height while keeping fairly stock geometry.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    According to the write up on these spacers ie

    They are designed to allow the front end of the vehicle to raise further under acceleration and deliver a better weight ratio to the rear tires. It allows the front end to rise as much as 6" under hard acceleration for maximum weight transfer. It is recommended for street or strip.

    THEY DO NOT CHANGE THE STAND STILL HEIGHT OF THE CAR. THEY DO NOT CHANGE THE NORMAL DRIVING HEIGHT OF THE CAR.

    Ill explain.........

    My reason behind the spacers is 2 fold

    Firstly gassers didnt have to have a nose high stance but when they did it was to aid weight transfer ............ these also help weight transfer and are similar to design to what was used back then (60s)

    Secondly https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

    if you read what i wrote i said they allow fitting longer springs and spacing the lower wishbone pivots which WILL raise the front end without altering the geometry much. only trying to help mate.

    Neil thanks for the info I do really appreciated it ... I can see where your coming from buy lowering the bottom wishbone with longer springs fitted
