i always recomend going 1'', and if that is too much for you, shim them back with washers. (between the arm and the frame) that way if you ever want more, you can take the washers out.

got an81 coupe here and i would go with what CP said just go an inch and shim them back with 1/2 washers about 3 on each bolt between the a-arm and the backside of your shock tower ,if you ever start to butterfly then take them out as you need ..are you strapped or is your front shock towers been pounded down...are ya hoppin with it...i did an inch on mine and my i heated and pounded down my shock towers to allow the a-arm to hang lower when its locked up in front...and mine is still shimmed at about 3/4 and i hop mine alot..but my belly is strapped which is something you need to do if your hoppin with it..if not youwill probably be pullin them shims out very often...i'm in the very low 40's in a single pump.....and 10 batteries on 13's..175's...3.8 v-6

:cool:
