It looks like you car does right now. This is because you already have installed two inch drop coil springs front and rear. It is called spring sag and happens with age and use. If you subtracted two more inches of ride height I am sure things would be dragging. Just get down with a two by four and shove it under low lying parts of the car to see how much ground clearance you would have. (a 2x4 is actually a 1-5/8 inch, by a 3-5/8th inch board).

My car had new springs installed when it has its frame off restoration. The springs are only 2 years old
