Springs / Tires

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for some advise.

I have a 1968 Camaro big block car. The front end still has the original springs and I am running P215/70R15 BFG Redline tires all the way around. The front tires rub when i drive and the front end sits low. (Pics attached)

Is replacing the front springs since they are the originals the right way to go? Should i be putting original 14" rims on the car instead? Or is replace the front tires with 215/65 R15's to give me the clearance i need?

Thoughts / options?

If the springs are the right option what model Moogs should i go with so my car doesnt look like a 4 X 4? :P

NON AC big block car

Re: Springs / Tires

Yep, I'd say the Big Block and 40+ years have taken a toll on those poor old springs. The tires are less than an inch OD taller than stock (less than 1/2" at the fender)....or about the same as the 15" tires that came on the Z. Course the Z had a small block.

Sorry I can't help select new springs.....

Welcome aboard and NICE car !
