70 z28

Hey all. I'm doing my first project, a 1970 Z28. Lots of fun and boy it can get expensive quickly. Ls3 engine, ridetech rear 4 link, Heidts front subframe, and still pondering on a T56 magnum or 4L80e 6 speed. Minitubes and 335 30 18's on the back.

Re: 70 z28

Thanks for the warm welcome. The car was built in Norwood according to the vin and has a cowl tag that says its a real z. Sure u know the challenge of verifying a 70z. Soooo I guess it is real. Any help on that would be appreciated. Here are the pics first day and as it sits now. http://i1295.photobucket.com/albums/...16A7E0FCE6.jpg

I tried posting your pics directly here, but it didn't seem to work.

Re: 70 z28

Welcome Roy...... the car looks really clean from the pictures. We offer a killer bolt-on rear suspension for 10 & 12 bolt rears so you do not have to modify the car.


Here is a install article that Super Chevy did a few years back:


http://www.superchevy.com/technical/...ll_strong_arm/

We also offer a Torque Arm kit for guys who want a Ford 9" that includes a bare Strange Engineering housing. We take the housing and weld on all the necessary brackets so that it also bolts on to your car.

Take a look at the link below detailing an install that a customer completed with our Ford 9 in. kit in his 1973 Firebird:
