Hey all,

I was looking for what your guys' opinion was on 1 inch lowering blocks for my 65 mustang. I want to do it because I think the car could use about an inch or so out of the rear end stance, what do you guys think?

Thanks.

Lowering blocks tend to reduce the handling and for not much more $, you can have the rear springs re-arc-ed lowing the rear by what you want. Find a good spring shop, this is an easy to do for them ...fyi...hot re-arc only (no cold process- because the springs will fail- ie not stay where they were set).

You want to de-arch to remove height. Re-arch to add height.

De-arch new springs before getting too many miles on them or within a year if sitting most of the time.

De-arch cold, not hot.

Don't know what is recommended for re-arch...hot or cold

...or you can just buy a set of reverse-eye/mid-eye springs from one of the poplar mustang vendors. More than likely your springs are worn out by now Why put money into them? Just my 2 cents.
Good luck though with your project.
