    Hey D&W, your '68 is going to kick ass when you drop it. I just cut the springs on mine, it's probably been about 20 yrs so I don't remember how many coils I cut. I know it went down more than 4". You could probably start with 2 1/2 coils and go from there. The ride is as smooth as stock height and it still has some suspension travel, stock shocks too. Later.

    Hey hows it going?

    I've seen your lowered merc on here. I'm working out the best way to lower my 68 280se.

    Did you cut or reset factory springs?

    I can get a set of use springs for $100 from sun valley dismantlers so just need to decide cut or reset. I'm looking for about 3-3.5" both front and back.

    any advise would be great. how does your car ride lower? stock shocks still?

    thanks in advance
