  1. I think i DESTROYED my Ridetech Suspension (1968 Camaro)

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey guys, quick recap. I've recently installed the Ridetech StreetGrip Suspension. Ended up with the fronts being too low and rub the fender. It turned out to be from the 2" McGaughy drop spindles that I did not know about (thought they were stock). Anyways, I later added 3/8" coil spacers from...
  2. 1968 Camaro Ridetech suspension (review/issues)

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Had a thread under a different topic, so thought I'd share my reviews, issues, and photos here. I previously had all stock: coils w/spacer, kyb shocks, and multi-leaf springs. The ride height was good/aligned. I also had 235/45/17 & 275/40/17 tires. After asking for help choosing a suspension...

    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...
  5. Tire Traction?

    Wheels & Tires
    Hey Gents, I'm having a bit of an issue. I have a set of BFG T/A's and they are 5 years old.Is it time to change them? Absolutely. They still have a lot of tread, don't have any cracks or signs of dry rot, but they feel a bit hard and it's probably time. Here's the issue. I can't really put my...
  6. Suspension issues

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey guys, I recently picked up a '67 with aftermarket a-arms that creates a 2" drop. When I'm riding and hit any sort of bump in the road they rub the inner wheelwell, almost tearing off the chrome trim on both sides. It has coilovers, not sure of the brand, but the collars are cranked pretty...

  11. Upper A arm geometry

    Pro Touring
    Heard a little rumor of guys actually re drilling the 2 holes that mount your upper a arm to the frame in different locations other than stock. Is this true or childish nonsense? I can see how re drilling your front bolt hole lower than stock to decrease the caster angle or increase it by...

  16. Spring Compressor Question - Fork Type

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Have seen lots of posts on using spring compressors, but not one that addresses my issue. I am using an "OEM 27035" from Autozone - it has two hooks on a block and a fork to compress the spring. The spring went in fine. The issue I am having is getting the block/hooks out through the shock...

    Is there anything particularly obvious that this kit from Rick's (first link) is going to have that the CPP kit (bottom link) won't? Ricks also has a cheaper kit that is labeled a "functional" replacement, but the "OE" replacement is more, of course...

  20. Subframe R&R Question

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I'm going to be pulling the motor and trans out of my 67 and going through the front end at the same time. Since I'll have the bulk of the components out, I thought I'd pull the subframe too and get it cleaned up and painted or powercoated. Can anyone give me advice on doing the subframe R&R...
