Question

Tuesday morning I took my three year old son for a ride in my 67 396 SS/RS, we'll without saying he wanted me to get on it (I'm raising him right) anyway I reved the engine up to 4 grand and dumped the cluch. Well it took off alright and also drove the right rear shock throught the trunk floor(found a weak link). The problem is I cannot find the bracket that is welded to the frame, I have already ordered the shock tower trunk panels and they will be in on monday. BUT I need a new shock bracket(or what ever it is called). If anybody has the part or solution to my problem please let me know. You can e-mail me at [email protected].
Thanks for the help.

Try Larry Christiansen at Camaros Plus. It's in Colorado (Denver I think). The number is (303) 420-6229. He seems to have everything for first gens, including the hard to find stuff. Good prices too.

How did you send the shock through the upper aupport? Are your shocks too long? Also, with that much power, maybe you may want to think about moving your shocks inboard. Then they are anchord to the frame rails.

I think the problem occured a couple months back the car had BAD wheel hop. It broke the support then shoved the shock through the sheet metal. The shocks are the correct KYB shocks. And as for power I can only dream I have that much power. Is there any info availible for moving the shocks inboard. Thanks Mike <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by 69er:

There are several manufactures that sell a mounting system to move them in. Competition Engineering sells a kit, (PN C3019), They're around $100. Bob

Thanks 69er I will check into that. It would be nice not to mount them through the trunk floor pan agian.
