"Learned something last night working on my 73 that i believe will apply to all caddy makes. The spindles on it are 1" drop, just as all the GM makes are. while building a 91 Box HD Vic right next to it, i noticed that the spindles on it are STD height. So i quickly knocked off the Vic spindles, swapped them around and gained 1.5 inches of bumper height. Also the steering arms are 2 inches shorter on the vic and that speeds up my steering a bit which helps me a ton when turning these boats. With the amount of meat in the Vic spindles, i think i can ream the lower ball joint about another 1/2 inch and that should be worth about 3/4 at the front bumper."
I think this tip was from joker
"Use a 7 degree tapered ream, it allows the ball joint to go in deeper, hence raising the car."
Black Car Inc. 12 Bolt BIA Axles For Sale....PM me for details
REALIZE THAT FOR EVERY INCH YOU RAISE YOUR FRONT BUMPER, YOU EXPOSE ANOTHER INCH OF THE LOWER CORE SUPPORT....... ITS A VERY FINE LINE......
With a cad is that a issue though?
Special Thanks to those businesses that help me keep my crap running.
