Re: To mini tub or not to mini tub. That is the question.
I find this kind of curious. On my first 68 Camaro, I ran 305/60/15's on 15x10 rims without any modification. However, with the monoleafs would rub the outer fender-lip when I cornered with people in the back seat. Because I frequently had back seat passengers, I kept the back end a little high to compensate. I never had the chance to lower it on multi-leafs so I'll assume it would have been problematic.
Talk about raked, back high and front sagging.
On my current 68 Camaro, I run 295/60/15's on 15x7 rims without any body modifications on multileafs with a little over 1/2" to spare on the inside and outer fenders. I think I still sit just a little high but I never rub.
I just crawled under the car to do some measurements. With offset rear shackles, a mini-tub that does not notch the frame and relocating the shocks inbound - you could gain 3" of additional room and keep the stock tank... more than enough room to lower the car on a 315 with the right backspacing, maybe larger with a stiff suspension. I think the key here is in the sidewall. A 315/30 series might not fit.
