g-body front lift springs $100
g-body rear lift springs $100
Extended upper arms $400
rear air shocks $100
thats only $700 and you was tryin to spend $600

Cup kit goes for $100 to $150
arms $400
air shocks $100
thats $650

fabtech s-10 lift spindles $425
extended trailing arms $350 to $450
thats $875

UCL 5" complete lift kit $795
cups
front arms
trailing arms
shocks

thats all i could think of


I've never tried the cups but I've tried the spindles on a 87 SS Monte with Cooper 295/35/24 tires and the ride pretty much remained the same...and had plenty of room to spare could of easily put 6s on, But Im trying to think of some new options for my 84 Hurst Cutlass with 275/25/24 tires not really looking to go the spacers/cups route, thinking about the 3" lifting spindles with a 1" drop spring

Hey I just got an Buick regal and want to put 28s on it. I saw that the wheel wells are kind of bigger then most gbodys. I know I'm going to need new springs, would the moog 5608 help lift it in the front since i have a big block and they have a higher spring rate and use the moog 5391 to help lift the rear (I got all my spring rate info from http://www.maliburac.../coilspring.htm) Would I be able to lift it enough with caprice spindles, notching the front and rear, rear trailing arms, and the adjustable cups from ucl??

Hey I got a few questions, if you dont mind answering them. What did u do to get that much lift?are those stock c1500 spindles? I saw on the layitlow forum they use b body control arms to, or is it easier to extend extend the controls arms and how did you extend your trailing arms, I'm in high school but i know how to weld and have access to a full shop so i can do most of it myself. Could u email me the help to djmurria@gmail.com

How do you get a g body to fit 255/30/26 with very minimal cutting? Can it be done without extended control arms?

I didn't type my question right. How do you get 255/30/26 to fit on a g body with as little lift as possible? Just got a set and trying to redue lift and lower my car to fit them nicely. Without extending control arms, spindles if its possible??? Me and a friend was having a discussion if it can be done and he said you can fit them with your stock suspension but with lift springs. I don't think that would be enough clearance for 26s because g bodys are so fucking small, I thought you had to extend the control arms and use a larger spindle UNLESS you was using 275/25/26....what yall think?

Ok, my front suspension is lower than my back now because I had the factory springs and lift cups taken out. I now have Moog HD springs in front,but they don't give enough lift to fit my 24s. I also plan to go 26s next spring or sooner, so what do I need to have done next to give me that lift I need in front? I'll try to post pics

Go to any auto parts store and get HD springs for a '72 Caprice/Impala w/a big block, and shocks.

What's the offset of your wheels? That could be part of your problem too.
