never leave them stock,go with an inch and that leaves you room to add or remove shims to get it where you want it

we are doing some for my caprice at a 2 inch ext. so i can have a slight bulldog stance at full lock and give a lil more lift but like bossman said use of shims will give you the fine tuning you might want so the i say extend them from 1-2 inches but no more than that or you will be riding on your whitewalls

3/4 to 1" would be perfect just remember if you extend too far you can shim em back if you dont do em enough then your stuckwith it

1/2" is plenty,you gain alot when you ditch the factory shims on those caddies.

I've left alot of cars stock. just crank them all the way out. I dont see a point in extending a-arms on 12v or 24v setups

and 1" is too much for lay n play, this stuff is getting rediculous... 0.5" 3/4" at the most
