Also u can put new Shackles on there like $50 lift the rear 2 inchs and then crank your t-bars to raise your front end...t-bar crank is free.

Chevy Drop Shackles.

Anything can be done at little cost, you just have to be patient for the right deal to come around.

sorry... i feel kind lame asking...but wtf is a t-bar, and where can i get a t-bar crank...i most likely have seen a t-bar when i was working on my manifold,
but i cant put the name to the piece....and as far as the back goes...i think its high enough for now, if you look @ the pics on my cardomain you can see how much lower my front end is than the rear...how do i crank up the t-bars and what.where are they?

you dont have a t-bar actually...they didnt start till 98 i beleive...you have a TTB suspension IIRC

t-bar = torsion bar
TTB = twin traction beam ( i think)
