1967 low rear end

I’ve added new springs to the rear and new shocks (4), the rear end still sits very low. With 17” American Torque thrust II on the back and 16” up front, I want it to sit right. Any idea on how to get the right pitch on my 1967 Lemans?

There are all sorts of spring spacers, stools, air bags, & taller/stronger springs.

Running tires that have taller sidewalls, rather than the super low profile tires that most run today, will raise the rear some. Obviously, a 2" taller tire will raise the rear end 1".
