im pretty sure hes not into lowriders...but maybe... no its just been hangin around for a long time figured they were just sagging...i want it kinda tall and give a little stance maybe some bigger wider tires on the rear.

Then the 350 with a non-computerized carb and a non-computerized HEI distributor would be fine in your cruck. You will probably have to get one of the kits to handle the lock-up torque converter as the factory one is handled by the ECM, tranny mike, is the sites transmission expert, he will probably chime in on that part.

I just installed new AC Delco G-body rear springs with Air lift 1000 assets bags & it has a nice stance !!

A cheap and easy to solve it is to go to a junk yard, find a Buick, Oldsmobile or Pontiac stationwagon. Get the rear springs and install them, no more leaking air shocks or air bags. Towing capicity increasses three fold and the stance is just right :nanawrench:
