David,
I was on your site looking at camber curves.
Its seems like the pro moters extenders are an overkill. It seems that if the extender was smaller it would work better. What if you only extended your spindle 1/2" or 3/4" or just 1"? If read a post about making our spindle 1" longer. What would the camber curves look like. Don't you have a computer program that formulates this? Does the 2nd gen have a longer spindle, what is their camber curve.

I know its a lot of questions, but these are question that keep me up at night!

I have a program to do it but don't have all the measurements to input to it.
I'll have to assemble my front end AND ALIGN IT TO ZERO TOE, CASTER AND CAMBER. To get good input.
The Guldstrand mod is pretty close to the same as increasing spindle height to 1".
I don't know the second gen camber curve, it is better than first gen and was partly designed from info from Trans Am racing experience of Penske, Guldstrand and others.

Taller spindles were homologated for Penske in 1969.
Second gen spindle is taller by about an inch and a half, and NO it won't fit the first gen. the steering arm is cast in and is way too high to work.

I think a close to ideal spindle would be an inch taller and mabye the spindle shaft location would be moved an inch higher to lower the car.

So, if you could create it what would be the ideal setup? A longer spindle with a change in the A-arm mounting (not necessarily the Guldstrand mod).

I also noticed that on your CBB site you have a picture of a

"69 Camaro Vintage racer with a taller Stock Car Procucts spindle, and NASCAR hub with 5/8" studs"

What is that about?"

Also, Where can I find the camber curve of the 2nd gen?

I tried the "nastyz" second gen web site but, got not answers.
