Caltrac Bars

anyone on here running Caltrac traction bars on a 67 with stock shock locations? i just ordered a set and i'm curious if the shock plates will work with non-staggered shocks

Re: Caltrac Bars

I had a set on a '67 several years ago and all I can say is that I don't remember having an issue with them. I can honestly say that I don't remember the shock orientation. It did have the factory upper mounts and was a standard Camaro 12 bolt rear axle.

Not much help, I know.

Thanks,

Yes they will fit....when you order them you buy based on stock location.

Thanks,

i ordered through Summit and there was not an indication or option for Shock location. i entered 67 camaro and the part number that came up said it fit 67-69 Camaro. that's why i ask. guess i'll wait and see. Summit is usually pretty good to work with so i'm sure if i have an issue they will take them back and replace with the right parts

Re: Caltrac Bars

You should be fine.
The Caltrac spring plate is designed so that the rear shocks can be mounted in several configurations (staggered or non-staggared... and both options can be mounted to the inside or outside of the leaf springs). It all depends on how you position/install the Caltrac spring plates.
