Looking to lift my Buick

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if I can just buy larger coil springs for my 1977 Buick Electra 225. I need somewhere between 2-3 inches of lift. Currently installed airbags in the rear to get the clearence I need. But I need some lift in the front. Without doing a cowboy sh#t job.

I suspect you have installed larger rims/tires and need more clearance.

Why not replace the front springs with air bags?

Order station wagon springs, and you will get a 2-3 inch lift.

No need to install station wagon shocks, but you could.

Take a look at your body mounts. They can get squashed down by an 1 1/2 over time.

 

The trouble with the taller springs is in being able to get enough camber adjustment after they are installed.
