Re: 68 camaro close to done

Nice man! Can't go wrong with the DSE rear suspension. That's the one thing I wish I could fund right now but it will have to wait.

Re: 68 Camaro close to done

Do you have a level, straight on side shot? Working on my 67 and looking to see a comparison. I've got a Ridetech/Prodigy rear and I can get it about as low as yours but any more and I have clearance issues with the diff cover and cross bar. I've already had to set the pinion angle at something I'm not totally comfortable with to get the yoke enough room in the tunnel. I'd like to compare notes. Shoot me a PM if ya like.

Also like to hear what you are running up front.

Re: 68 Camaro close to done

I will get you some shots as soon as I get the car back down.. have it in the air dealing with a new trans crossmember.. which is an ATS ... Thing is quite a piece, really well engineered and will give much better ground clearance... I hear really good things about the rear your running too.. Front is detroit speed lower arms, ats spindles, adjustable upper a arms and a custom fabbed upper mount for the coilover shocks.. 6 piston wilwoods with a fabbed bracket to bring it in closer to clearance the wheels.. need pics of that too..
