Not sure what to say; except for SPAM!
30years ago I bought a Cadilac 2dr-hard top like that one except it was green, I bought it at night with a light rain, when i saw it in the daylight and tried to get them fenders and hood , doors deck lid to line up, I knew I was in over my head and had to let that Cadi go, early years,low bucks investment tought me to never buy a vehical at night whens its wet out...Boy that Cadi sure looked nice and shinny all wet....Now that one you have there sure sits like age got to the suspension and would ride like a ridgid frame HD with out a seat post and over-inflated tires...this web site is one of the best love the old pics and links to auto advertizements..Tom (09)
Hello, I own a 56 Fleetwood and would like to know how you lowered your 51 Cadi..Looks great!! Tom-STL
I put 3" blocks in the rear. There is plenty of room for frame clearance over the frame. The front I cut 2 complete coil turns out of the spring top. It was much, and a bit of cutting is needed to make the necessary clearance so your not on the bumpstops. If I was to do it again, I would cut 1.25 coils out first and access the height and re-cut as needed until happy....or put air bags in the front. Many folks that have these all wish they had put bags in first...saves all the hassle and saves a ton of money and time (from the lowered uprights from Fatman and other mods needed just to get it down.) Bag it and save the ride. Block it in the rear.
