Re: Like the stance of lowered Camaros

My rears rubbed until I put KYB Gas-A-Just real stiff shocks in the rear. Some people don't like the stiff ride, I don't mind it myself.

Yeah, mine rubs with 4 people. I always tell people its a 3 seater. But when it looks this cool its worth it ;-)

Re: Like the stance of lowered Camaros

Love the stance of your car and I really like your wheels. I have a similar painted 67 that my friend and I just installed Speedtech UCAs, LCAs, and Viking double adjustable coilovers. Getting ready to put in some Hotchkis 3 inch drop leafs. Still have a little bit of a gap, but I plan on fixing that with a set of 17s.

x2. I love those red line rims with the red car. Very cool old school/modern vibe.

Re: Like the stance of lowered Camaros

I have the same B/S as you mentioned. I have it lowered 3 inches in the rear and 1.5 to 2 inches in the front. Rear's do not rub. A sway bar helped but I had to roll the driver's side fender. The fronts rub slightly when making a full radius turn. I have QA shocks.

Very tough to achieve that look on a 67-68. You'll have to drop it a couple of inches lower than a '69 to get the rounded arches of a 67-68 to line up with the flat arches if a '69. That would mean running a much narrower wheel/tire to tuck in there, or some tubs.

Yea I knew the 69's were way different as far as the arches. I was referring to the tucked look he has. I think my 18's 19's combo will achieve what I am after.

Re: Like the stance of lowered Camaros


I am running 18" Rushforth's with 235's in the front and 275's in the rear. Until I added QA1's to all four corners they would rub slightly with 4 people in it.
