Hi guys. Well, I managed to get the front suspension off my car and mostly put on the parts car (to make it a roller). Let me tell you that was a chore in a half....the front suspension on the parts car, which was in very good condition, came off smoothly without too much trouble. But the suspension on MY car, had 40+ years of gunk and corrosion and was a living nightmare to get off. It took two days and a few ideas just to get the bolts to break free. Then to top it off, my spring compressor would not fit through the hole in the lower control arm of my parts, so that was a bit challenging.
When I reinstalled the front suspension, since the spring compressor did not fit, I could not get the front springs on to the parts car. So consequently, the parts car's front end is sitting about 1" off the ground. Anyone have a suggestion on how I can lift front end a bit, just so it rolls and is not quite so low?
