  • drop spindles for a 51

    Since there are no skirts for the front wheels, any suggestions on drop spindles. I want the car to appear to be lower but since there are no skirts I would consider drop spindles, HELP

    No dropped spindles available - I wish they were. Cut springs are crude but effective.

        I actually have custom springs but they only dropped it about an inch.

          Use the later spindles (late 53 and up) they will drop the front end about a 1/2" to 3/4" The "axle shaft" is higher on the spindle than the earlier cars, there was a change sometime in late 52.
