Lowering/firming a 66

66 Coupe front end mavens!
Old posts indicate that 620# springs are too stiff for a daily driver, and that progressive Eibachs or maybe 520#s would be better along w/ dropping the A arm 1” and/or shortening spring length plus a wedge kit. I know this is a beaten subject, but, for this great new forum layout folks ---- What’s the best way to get the front 1”– 2” inches lower, improve handling (I have a big sway bar already), handle bumps, spare my front tires, etc. Suggestions on suppliers/kits would be appreciated. Thanks!

66 Coupe, 351W, C4, 9" Versailles+Auburn

I've been running them for the last two seasons. My overall impression is that I am not impressed. These springs settle a lot. After a couple months you are down another .75" or so.

I also am not a big fan of progressive rate springs. They have a real wobbly spring feel. They give a lot immediately before they start to dig in and get firm. I have them on my 2000 GT as well but they seem better suited to that car.

I am likely going to switch to the TCP coilover kit. Coilovers rock! Set them where you want... I cancelled my order due to the backlog at TCP but I am reconsidering.
