    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I just got my first 1968 Camaro this week and could not be more excited! This is my first post here and after spending about 30 min reading other posts on the topic I was not able to find what I was looking for. I am also a bit of a novice so I hope you will have patients with me. My front...

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hello, I’m ordering front sway bars soon for better handling. And also thinking of replacing the front tires from 235/45/17 to 245/45/17 (keeping rears 275/40/17) I’m also looking to lower the car a little? (Looks like I have some room, right? photos below) Question: What suspension kit &...

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I'm restoring a '68 L78 Camaro SS and I'm looking to lower it 1.5"-2" min or so, all around, from the stock settings. Will be using the stock setup (no coil overs or anything). Any suggestions on leaf springs, shocks, etc? I see Classic sells this rear kit 1968 Camaro Parts | D41602 | 67-69...

    HI Folks, I just dropped the little tray I have been storing all the nuts and bolts from my 67 Camaro restoration, its ok for the most part I have remembered where they go and have put the labels back where they go but I have 12 bolts that I am unsure of. I have grouped them into two...
  5. Springs?

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I recently purchased a 4K car. The car appears to have all the original suspension on it. The 396 is not currently in the car but there is a 454 stuffed in there. The suspension was quite spongie, so I replaced the front and rear shocks with adjustable Competition shocks. 90/10 on fronts...
  6. 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...

  8. Z springs

    Engine
    Hi Folks - I am Murf, a newbie to Team Camaro. I had a '69 Z new in Feb '69. It was a blast. I loved that 302. Well, now, 43 years later I am building a new 302. Have a 3932327 Z block that had to go .030 over to clean her up (= 306 cubes). And 3927186 Z Heads which have been markedly...
  9. Rear spring recommendation

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I have searched the forum and not found exactly what I need. I need to raise the rear of my 68, 1-1/2 - 2.0 inches. I have 12 bolt; 5-leaf; 275-60-15 tires. The only item in the suspension that has not been replaced is the rear leaf springs. I see many guys are using the JCW Nova 3-learf...

    Third Generation
    I have a *block, it came out of a 91 suburban. I want to know what block it would be vortec or whatever.

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I'm trying to replace the front coil springs on my 68 RS & I cant get the front bolt that holds the lower control arm off to save me life. I tried all day today and I can barely even get it to turn. I just ended up putting everything back together. Any tips on how to get it out? I need to...

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    1968 RS Suspension is too low & I'm constantly bottoming out! Help! I just bought a 68 RS and I'm having problems with the car just being way too low. I'm running a 350 engine so it's not a weight problem from upgrading to a big block. I've got 15" rims on it and P195/65R15 tires. If I look...
  15. 70' Front Springs...it's been a while

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    So...I've been working on my car since I was 19 (now 29) and it's been collecting dust more than anything. I've decided I want to actually drive it in my 30th year so I'm back at it. I rebuit the suspension years ago with polyeurethane, new everything and a 2" dropped spindle. With new stock...
