I have a 68 coupe with 289 automatic and I rebuilt the front end using a kit that came with everything except the struct rods and coil springs. It had new upper and lower control arms in the kit just to be sure that is known for this discussion. I also installed KYB gas adjust shocks on the front and rear. I reused the original coil springs and I do believe they are the original factory springs. I took the car for a front end alignment after installing all the new parts and also had the shop double check all my handy work. The car sits very high in the front and I was told that it's possible someone did something to cause it to sit so high in the front during the alignment process. I was told that it will settle down after a while and that also the gas shocks could be part of the problem with it sitting so high up in the front. I measured the height from the top of the wheel opening on the outside of the fender to the top of the tire which the tires are a standard 14 inch and I had 4 1/4 inch clearance. I took the shocks lose from the top and I bounced the car up and down a bunch of times and it settled down 7/16 of and inch. I then bolted the shocks back up. I would like to know is there anything that a alignment can do to cause the front end to stand up so high ? It's obviously not the shocks and the coil springs are the same old ones that were on it and before all this it sat very normal looking like it was pretty much level looking. Could the alignment cause anything to keep it sitting up high ? Check out the pictures.
