I'm not 100% sure but i think J.C. Whitney has the lifted springs that you need.

Yea if springs are what you want then a set would be cheap.But if you really want a lift kit(spindles and such) ive never seen one.Springs will give you the lift though.

ok good i can get a set of springs cheap but my question now is if i go with just a bigger spring im pretty shure i will have a camber problem. right or wrong. im asumeing i will have a positive camber problem. now does the caprice have a bilt in camber adjuster? if so do you guys think the amount of positive camber will be fixable with the faxtory camber adjuster? and what about my factory shocks will they be up for the abuse of lifting her up? thanks for the help guys i just wanna get as much advice as i can be for i start un bolting things from my car.

I'm not sure but I think you're the first to ask about raising an Impala, everyone here wants to get them lower.

well your better off leaving well enuff alone ,these cars are not designed for all that crap ,and those big wheels are really gonna shorten the life spane of all your steering componants and wheelbearings and not to mention the increased work the brakes are gonna have to put up with ,its not worth the trouble if you want something lifted ,get a truck.ohh and no the shocks will not be able to be reused if you wind up doing this mess,those will have to be custom as well as the brake lines ,just more stuff to make it not worth the trouble.

I have heard of a few people running a chevy truck spring in the front. All you should need is some taller springs and an alignment.
