Drop springs

I installed 2" drop springs in the front of my 80 Malibu with a ls1 and it does not seem to be enough! The car still sits up high in the front. What kind of difference will 2" drop spindles make? I am not happy with the drop in the front at all. The rear was 1" drop springs and it looks great!

Front upper control arms

I need to rebuild my front upper control arms and wanted to see if I should rebuild my stockers or look into the speedway uppers? I drive the car on the street and don't have any plans to race it, just mostly a cruiser. Thoughts?
