How much drop would there be if installed on a LM?

The spindles are a 2" drop spindle

I don't remember all the details about adapting them, but I'm pretty sure they use a larger ball joint on the bottom, don't remember about the top.

Anyone know what's involved?

Thanks

A 2" drop on an S10 doesn't necessarily translate to 2" on a Corvair.

What are the A-arms length on LM Corvair compared to S-10?
That would confirm the drop, ratios you know.

Actually you need the difference between the axle centerline and lower ball joint compared to the Corvair.
