The only thing that concerns me is the Ford 9" rear end.
I would suggest that you measure the length (axle flange to axle flange) of the Ford 9" and compare it to the stock rear end to see if it is the same. Hopefully, it will be ... or very close.....
That will let you drop that variable from the equation and allow you to just size wheels for a 1969 Camaro w/ disk in front and drum in the back.
Yes this was one thing that was concerning me as well. I am guessing they are about the same. I am using the same wheels and tires on it now that I had when the stock 10 bolt was in place. Although the wheels did rub just a smidge before I changed to the 9".
I am not sure if this was fixed because I also put multi leaf springs on or if the wheels sit out just a little more.
Dont worry I will be calling you over when I get to the measuring part of the project.
But I bet you knew that already.
I am not in any hurry I still havent even gotten the front apart. But I thought I would put this post up and get opinions in advance.
DJ. I did read the sticky posts, but to be honest, the whole tire suspension geometry thing is over my head. What makes it hard is I am guessing I do not have stock springs in the front. I plan on replacing most of the front suspension over this winter. I am just trying to figure out what to buy in order to get everything to fit.
Right now the only thing I was kind of sure of was the wheel choice. So I thought I would start there and try to make everything else fit around that.
I was on AR website and they seem to mostly use dealers to answer all the questions. I was hoping I could just send them an email or message or something. No such luck.
I did find a phone number I need to call. I will try that and see if I have any other options than the ones listed on their website.
I did their(American Racing) application web page for a 69 Camaro and the wheels I want came up as a choice. But they listed the 17x8 and the 20x8.5 as sizes that would fit.
I do not think I want to mess w/ 20 inch wheels in the back.
Anyways thanks for the help so far. This whole process is kind of overwhelming.
