I went out and bought a thing... A LUV thing....
So I went and bought a 1979 Chevy LUV. AKA the Isuzu Faster/Pup. It’s pretty much stock (sans a very non-functional roll bar, and some other odds and ends. Has a mean 1.8L I4 that screams like a banshee... Because the prev. owner straight piped it... In other words it’s going to be getting a bit more of an exhaust in the near future.
Of course the first thing I did after buying it was bring it down to a more reasonable height (pictured above). Overall it was a 4" drop (w/ a 3° pinion angle correction) in the rear and then just cranked down the torsion bar in the front to drop it about 3.5".
Overall the thing’s been an absolute blast to drive. It’s laughably impractical/ridiculous and I couldn’t be happier! Last picture is how it sat when I bought it.
