Default Is "stance" important?

Sometimes the stance can make or break &quot;the look&quot;. I think it is integral for the correct muscle car era. <span style="color: #CC0000">Come on, show use yours!</span>

The only decent shot I've got right now--hope to change that soon though.

Stance is important to get it right if you are going for the original height on a 1970 Chevelle SS. The back was always lower than the front [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

Lets not froget about my Mopar, The 1970 Challenger had one of the lowest stances in stock original form for a factory muscle car.

The stance is absolutely vital, whether it be the stock stance or the modified look - one inch in the wrong direction can make it or break it, IMHO.

I don't see it as being lower Dan.The rocker looks horizontal to the ground.If you make a print of your pic and draw a line through the centres of the wheels and the bottom of the rocker,you will find the lines are parallel.I think if you measure the front of the rocker and compare it to the back,they will be very close.
I always remember back in 70 that when my LS6 was loaded for the track that the back went down.2 slicks on steel wheels with a tool box and a 24 of &quot;50&quot; was too much for stock springs.
