Does anyone have SpeedTech Upper Control Arms for Tall Spindle?

Hey guys, I have SpeedTech's Upper control arms for a tall spindle with Ridetech coil overs. I'm using a stock 67 Camaro subframe that still has in place the stock upper shock mounts. I was wondering if anyone has had problems with the control arm hitting the upper stock mount? It's hitting when the suspension is fully drooped. I was wondering if I should install a bump stop to keep it from hitting? Hopefully this won't be a problem when the suspension has some load on it and when I'm driving down the road.

Re: Does anyone have SpeedTech Upper Control Arms for Tall Spindle?

Normally the shock limits travel enough to prevent that. Do you have the ATS spindles? They are very tall and allow the lower A arm to drop even farther than stock. If the arm is traveling down as much as a stock arm would, then it should be OK. If not, I'd trim the bracket.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:
