Dropped my Fleetwood

Proforged front end; Ball joints, tire rods, center link, idler arm. Energy suspension sway bar end links, bump stops, cut. Sprint springs. I also did front shocks and brake pads (Monroe Sensatrac / AC Delco ceramic). I'm going to be changing all four shocks again for drop shocks. Impala wheels were on the front until I got it aligned so I didn't chew up my vogues. Going for an 18" rim soon.




Before

After




With vogues



Now on SS wheels





1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic LS - LT1 swap ect..

1996 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham - Sprint springs

I like the look with the vogues but it handles terrible. Much better with a 17" tire.

I prefer the factory chrome with the vogues, but still looks good with the imps. You gonna paint the center cap?
