you could to a spring over conversion, parts are free (other then new u bolts etc) just have to move the spring perches and re bolt it up, its relatively labor intensive although. or the easier route would be to find a new set of springs that lift the rear up slightly, i would assume its for drag racing so blocks would be crap....
