    Transmission & Driveline
    So here is my dilema. I have a 1967 Camaro and I am replacing everything in the rear of the car (i.e. wheels, mini-tubs, rear-end, suspension). I don't have anything yet and I'm not sure what to get first. My thought was to get the the rear end housing and axles first then adjust my wheel...

    Hey gents, I have a '67 with a 10-bolt, locker (not sure what type) and 4.11 gears. I purchased it like that but would like to change it to a posi and 3.73. I found a rear end from a '69. It's a 10-bolt with 3.73s, it's got a posi, and he's selling it for $600. My question is will a '69 rear...
  4. How do I level the rearend of my 67

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I just added new leaf springs on my 1967 Camaro. They are correct multileaf springs for a 1967 Camaro. I also put new shocks on at the same time. After install, the left rear of the car dips down a 1/4 inch lower than the right. I have Cal-Tracs installed as well but have verified that they...

    Transmission & Driveline
    I have looked through many of the posts. Many of them look to be dated more than a year ago. Looking for updated information and experiences. I have found a reconditioned jig welded Ford 9" with proper perch locations and pinion angle/offset for 1969 Camaro. Can anyone already running a...

    Transmission & Driveline
    So, I started on this project about 3 months ago, and just haven't had the time to finish it up. I exchanged posts with some of you about making a post that brakes down all the feasible First Gen rear end swap possibilities -- that is, ditching an 8.2 for "better" rear ends -- and things to...
  14. WTB 8.2 3.55 or 3.73 gears... or an entire 8.5 rear

    Forum Classifieds
    Gear have to fit an 8.2. I'd be content with just the gears, but I also need posi. So, if you have a posi set up that will work for my 8.2, I'm open to that too. That said, if you have a Nova 8.5 set up with similar gearing and you're close enough to Austin that I could come pick it up, I'm...
