*** I have 20 " big daddys as well but, I cant lay frame at all... I have a 13'' stack of spring in the front so it sits up a tad... I also didnt get the powerballs to go with it because I had already welded brackets for the use of rod ends..... The bottom of the bumper sits around 8" off the ground maybe higher but, Thats okay for me --- Maybe i will modify it to lay her down some more...... ;)
** i also have 14X7 reversed wheels that rub just a tiny bit on the insides........... You can never really get the impala to lay all flat -- they just werent made that way..... But if you raise up the front with the back down ------- SPARKIN !!!!!!!

Maxwell has alot of spring there too... My cylinders sit about 2" above the rear deck.
The springs I have arent really funtional in my setup tho -- the 4" reversed cup that i made actually hits the spring perch before the spring could actually function..........

* I dont want to but , I might have to put in bigger springs like the 63 pictured......

*** As for the laying frame -- Nevermind........ ;)

I was thinking of it but, it would only increase the hight of the cylinder sticking out of the rear deck.......... I could also try & remount the rod ends lower in the trailing arm brackets -- I have rod ends too....... Im sure you use the BigDaddyBalls!!!!!!!!

when it first broke out i had 20" competition cylinders and regular powerballs on it but those cylinders got too much bend so i got the big daddys and got rid of the bending problem still i had the regular powerballs so i machined up a pair of adapters to go in between the bigger big d. cylindershaft and the regular powerball, now i did my own trailingarms in 1/4" steel and i got the big daddy balls on them so i dont run adapters no more.

it sounds to me like your cylinders are sticking up strangely much cuz with 3.5 wraps of coil my 20" big daddys just poke through the rear deck like with the nipple -1/2" max!

** Like I said , I have little spring in there that dont even function -- I have them in there right now for looks basically....... The reversed cup that I made hits & prevents the spring from compressing any at all... BUT, I do have the remains of my 5 ton springs in there until I buy a set of 2 or 3 tons to add back there ....

** there is room to play around with so , Im not really worried ... It sits low enuff right now in the rear but, You always want to go lower.............

Don't get me wrong. Max's 63 drop is a bad mama jama. It was ahead of its time for a crazy lock up and and still dumped down in the back. It just didn't bury down... But yet times have changed again and thats why he built the yellow 61 drop (again ahead of his time)....because he figured a way to get it buried and still have a great lock up. Thats what its all about....through the progression of time and experience a person learns how to make things work better. :)

Nope...you won't be able to have the car sit real low. You will have to run a longer stack of coils in the back to get the cylinders from sticking too far up into the convertible top. They are starting to make telescopic cylinder which will solve this problem...but they are $$$. :cool:
you dont know what you are talking about we have 16s in the rear of our conv and the back bumper touches the ground and locks all the way up. some peoples kids damn.




































oh yeah by the way just kidding
