ground Up Parts

I am getting ready to purchase a deluxe front suspension kit from Ground Up and was wondering if anyone has used this and has any comments on quality of there equipment? It is for my 67 camaro.

Sounds like a motor that throws a rod at 7,00 rpm or so - you wind up with a bunch of ground up parts. j/k

Re: ground Up Parts

I just got some multi leaf springs fom them they seem to be good quality, quick shipping to for us guys on the east side. they dont seem to have much for tech support, I had a couple of questions about going from a mono to multi the guy said I couldnt, I already knew better so I just got the info I needed here and ordered the springs. They were also about $50 cheaper than most on the same springs

Re: ground Up Parts

really, everytime I went in Ground up, the staff was very knowledgeable. I bought mostly trim parts and they were all classic headquarters which i prefer.


Did you change the mounting perches on your rearend and get the multi leaf shock plates? The multi leaf perches are longer than the mono leaf ones and the shock plate is different. I bet thats why he said you can't put them on. You can put multi leafs in mono perches, but I don't recommend it. My 10 bolt was a mono leaf with multileafs on them and mono leaf shock plates. The shock plates were bent when I took them off. My previous set up wasn't that safe, so now I have a 12 bolt with multi leaf perches and multi leaf shock plates.

Re: ground Up Parts

I acually used dse conversion kit, it worked pretty good. I did put the mono shock plates back on, but im going to order a set for multi so I wont have to run extenders on the shocks. as for the tech at ground up I think he was just haveing a bad day ,as we all do sometimes. He just seemed anoyed that I would ask for any assistance, It hasnt stopped me from ordering more parts from them.they do sell quality stuff.
