Hello,
I have a '66 Impala, and would like to lift front and back 2". I would also like to convert to disk brakes front and back.
I am looking at Eaton Detroit Springs and QA1 single adjustable hydraulic shocks to raise me up the 2". My question is this:
Once I lift the car by 2", will I need a new, longer spindle when I install the disk brake conversion? I'm pretty sure the conversion kits I've seen so far are for factory height.
I am a beginner, so any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

if you have been looking at different brake conversion kits, have you called them to ask that same question?

Best way to raise a car is by heavier Springs. Years ago when they were available at Chevrolet, we would select a set for a car that had either AC, a Big Block or both. This would be for the Fronts. For the Rears we would order Big Block Wagon Springs. I believe Rock Auto is the best place to buy Springs today. If the Rear needed more lift, you could always Load-Levelers or Air Shocks. Also, I never heard of Front Shocks that would raise a car.
