  1. Too much positive camber - Alignment and Steering

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Firstly, I'd like to thank all of you for helping me get through front suspension rebuild. I could not have done it without the help of many of you and the information and links provided here. I have it back together and am trying to get a rough alignment before getting to the shop. There are...
  2. Suspension puzzles

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Today the car went on the alignment rack at a friend's garage, right around the corner from where we're working on it. Good news is that it drove there under it's own power :) Bad news is I now have some puzzles to solve before it'll actually go down the road. I have tubular control arms...
  3. Hood Hinges

    Body Shop
    Hi all: We have recently been working on getting proper gaps on the front end. While doing so we have come to the conclusion that our hood hinges are worn out. If we cannot tighten the rivets, we will most likely be replacing them. What reproduction brands have you seen quality hood hinges...
  4. Sensitive steering at high speed

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey all. I just got a sweet new set of wheels and tires. I had an alignment just before putting them on and haven't had one since. It tracks very true and feels good under 60mph or so. After that the steering gets pretty darty and twitchy, and it make me nervous. Am I missing something? How can...
  5. Alignment Shop in South Jersey

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hi All, I've had my '67 RS for about 8 years now and still have yet to find a decent place to get an alignment and with the control arm bushings, tie rod ends, idler arm, pitman arm, etc. that have been installed, the car is all over the road and it's chewing up my tires. I've called around...

    Body Shop
    This is my first post. I appreciate all the knowledge this site has provided me so far. I am building a 69 and have the engine mounted in the subframe and have the subframe connected to the body. Pushing the subframe forward as much as possible, I can only achieve a wheelbase of approx 107"...

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    All, I been searching the forums for a couple hours now and then I decided that I would try to get this information into one easy place to find (since I have not found it yet) so the people who need this after me can save some time and enjoy driving their cars. I have a 1969 Camaro that I have...
  8. Basket case problem

    Body Shop
    I recently bought a 69 hardtop basket case. The previous owner stripped the car of paint and parts down to the shell. He also removed the complete trunk and back section of the car. To get the complete trunk out, he cut the quarters straight back from the top of the wheel wells. He removed the...
  9. Steering Wheel not centered after tilt column

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey guys- My head is spinning on this one. I redid full front susp including 3rd gen steering box. Car had factory nontilt column. All susp and gear box parts went in smoothly, with steering wheel lined up perfectly with the nontilt column. I've just installed a rebuilt tilt column and wood...
  10. The Body Cart/Jig Thread

    So I have only been here a short while, but one of the questions that I have had, and the one that people have asked on here is: How do I build a body cart/jig? Well there is a multitude of information available, however, I thought I would start a thread where everybody can post pics and...
