What problems, if any, will I run into if I were to change the rear springs to the lower spring to get the level look and get away from the "racked" look? And not change the front springs. This is assuming I can purchase just the rear set (2) of springs. I would like the level look and not hte "Racked" look. I do NOT haul very much in the trunk or back what do you think? Thanks.

Raked, meaning to NOT lower the front any further, correct? Try Moog CC627. Lowers rear a little, feels very nice, rate-wise, IMO.

things to check if you do this:

1. Headlamp aim
2. Caster change in front

Bill, do you have any thoughts on how those springs would work and look with the Global West springs in front? Thanks.

Bill, You are correct. I want my 1995 Impala, looking at it from either side, to look as if it is level from front to back and does not have that look of the back being at little higher than the front--"racked". I know why Chevrolet builds it in, but I do not want it. So I would like to put springs in the rear which actually lowers the rear to a "level" position. About 1.5 inches. Thanks.
