my 67 camaro bottoms out on small dips, sounds like its scrapping the header flange. Some times it hits hard. tires are rear 255/60/16 front 215/65/15 fender lip to floor is 26" new moog coil spring #6308,( just added a coil spacer fender lip to floor is now 27" 1" sway bar, monroe sensa-trac shocks f & r
on the rear its a 12 bolt w/ multi leaf new bushings, sway bar, slapper bars
any ideas

Gosh, hard to say. Small block or big block?
Maybe try driving slower? Being in NY, I know for a fact your roads are like driving on the moon.

Re: harsh ride/bottoming out

I doubt that very much. What you have is pretty standard. Except the slappers. How much HP are you pushing?

How old are the shocks and springs? If the shocks are beat... that's most of the problem right there.
If everything is pretty new, I'm stumped. Your header collectors must hang pretty low, or the flanges are turned so one of the three corners is hanging lower.
