What are the various ways to raise the front end on a 1968 Camaro about 2 inches.

Best way is with a new set of Coil Springs, Several suppliers can set you up with what you need for your application. I think that NPN has a chart in their catalog, I lost lent mine out cant find right now.

You can also install coil spring spacers. They fit between the coil and the lower control arm. They raise frt. approx. 1" and do not alter the ride quality. Vette brakes sells them about $25.00 pair. www.vettebrakes.com

By the way vette brakes also sells replacement and performance coil springs, and other suspension and brake upgrades for first gen. camaros. I've delt with them and they were helpful and I got my parts pretty fast.

Why do you want to? Is the back raised also? How far from stock heigth is the front & rear? With all due respect, it seems as though the car could become 'unstable' in corners with the front raised, unless it's currently to low. For suspension upgrades I recommend Global West Suspension www.globalwest
