Alternator bracket ideas

My 02 Camaro LS1 has the low mount alternator bracket which hits my subframe. I dont want to notch my frame so Im looking for ideas on high or mid mount brackets that wont break the bank. I like the high mount from speedway but it puts the power steering pump a little higher than I like. Any ideas or help that are cheap are appreciated.

Re: Alternator bracket ideas

I'm using the top half of the stock truck bracket, but with you using power steering, it might put the PS into the frame ?

Worth a look I guess ?

EDIT:
Yes, doesn't look like it'll work

This setup looks nice; this is the one using the LS1 Camaro damper?

I was thinking of using the Corvette FEAD system :
Chevrolet Performance Parts - 19155067 - CPP Accessory Drive System With A/C - Fits LS2, LS3 & LS7 Engines

Does it clear the frame on a 68? I heard it does but the PS is tight.

Re: Alternator bracket ideas

I think that was the truck set-up above ?
Not the one I'm using, but I'm sure they would know what fits where (more popular swaps)

Re: Alternator bracket ideas

This is the Speedway one i was talking about, I think for the price I might just go with it for now and see if I like it. Maybe I will see something new at SEMA.

Re: Alternator bracket ideas

I have the corvette drive on my 68. The power steering is close and depending on which mounts you use it will work or be uncomfortably close.

Hey Murph,

Do you have stock or tubular upper control arms ?

I've read the tubular's give more clearance to the power steering pulley.

Re: Alternator bracket ideas

I run stock arms. With my original mounts I just clipped a little off the stamped arm for some breathing room. Now with the Holley mounts which move the engine forward it seems a little better still. I imagine tubular arms would more simulate what I did to my stock arms assuming bushing diameter is about the same. If the bushing diameter on the tubular arms is smaller it will make it even better.
