Pontiac GTO 1967 suspension

Hi all :-)
As told in the previous topic I own Pontiac GTO 1967.
One of the things I would like to make better on my car is the suspension.

One of the possibilities is to install BMR suspension level 2.
https://www.bmrsuspension.com/?page=...s&productid=78

Do you have some experience with this kit?

The negatives for me are lowering the front by 1 inch...

I would like to keep the vehicle optically as original as it can be.

Would you have another suggestion?
Thank you

Excuse me, I was not very careful while picking the link.
Do you have some experience with some another performance kit?
It is important to me, that the car has the very same height as before, because of original look.
Maybe just minor height change at the front and rear axle simultaneously.

any complete package you buy will lower the height of the vehicle due to the springs. If your current springs are still keeping the car at the correct height you can buy individual components to improve handling, so skip the packages.
Install a larger front sway bar and install a rear sway bar.

At the very end I am going to order a performance kit from UMI stage 2.
http://umiperformance.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=803
That allows me also to improve the camber and caster.

They will never catch me again :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE3dhBr7fho

Nice video. Do you have plans for wheels and tires?

I will stick with the PMD 15" to keep the original look.
Maybe I will change the tyres from 215 to 235.
