Love your red Camaro but have a question. You have 275's in front. Was the interference problem with the upper or lower arm. Was it corrected with shortening the turning radius or are the Speedtech arms actually narrower? Do they hit your aprons? Thanks any info would be appreciated.

First interference problem is the upper A-arm. Second is the rear section of the subframe. With these two cured everything else fit, but the lower A-arms are very close. Shortening the turning radius + narrower arm + limiting the rebound was the way I made them fit. The reduction in turning/rebound has not been a major factor.

I also run a lot of camber and castor (-2 / 6*). There's more room to work around the arms if the alignment is limited to -0.5* / 3* but you won't get the full benefit of the tire. For aggressive street driving -1* / 6* with a fairly stiff front spring works well.
