Funny, in the old days back in the 70's and 80's we used to put Air Shocks or shackle extenders on our rear suspension and jack our cars way up. Not realizing we killed the handling, but it looked cool. I got pulled over in my 68 coupe back in the 70's for having a modified suspension and having the rear jacked too high.
Now I'm ordering a complete new suspension for my Cobra to get it low and stiff. Times have changed.
