Title: Lowering Kits

Can anyone suggest a lowering kit for and/or parts required to lower my 60 Dodge Seneca?  Thanks in advance, Chas

IC: I highly advise against it.  Your front end must be pretty tired by now (unless it's completely rebuilt - including all the bushings) and messing with the geometry only compunds the problem.  Besides, it would only look right if the car was a street rod.  My opinion.
That being said, it can simply be done by cranking on the adjusting nuts at the forward end of the torsion bars.  That will lower or raise it.  Then you will need to get it realigned.

I told him to contact Chuck Lowe on the lowering.  He'll know. . . 60 dart (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/member_profile.asp?PF=128)  I suggested AAJ Brakes to him too.

For the rearaxle:

-> 2 or 3" Dakota lowering blocks.
3" is about the max you can lower a Mopar.

Fatman offers a dropped spindle for what they say is 1957-1988 Mopars...I know one spindle doesn't do all of those models so you will need to call them...but you can then keep the T-bars cranked for suspension travel.

Thanks for the info guys.  I requested the info b/c I'll be installing 17" Coddington wheels in place of the stock ones.  I just finished the body and the interior repairs/restos.  You all wouldnt know where there is a lonely hyper-pak lying around would ya.  Thanks again, much appreciated.
