Clutch pedal sits couple inches lower than brake. I can pull it up by hand to make it even but it falls back down on its own. Doesnt seem right??

Perhaps you have the spring going from the clutch fork to the zbar instead of going all the way to the motor mount/engine stand. That will keep the assembly together but cause the symptoms you describe. I have seen people with that setup before.

The clutch works fine it just sits low to the floor. Could it be the wrong spring?

picture of the underside of the area in question should tell the tale better than any words.

Huh? It doesn't quite work that way. There is supposed to be a return spring on the fork that keeps the clutch pedal up against the rubber bumper that the pedal rests against. The adjustable rod between the z-bar and fork is there to set throw-out bearing to PP clearance, or free-play. Nothing more.

The spring from the fork needs to have the other end attached to something fixed on the frame.

Everything on the car is new it an was automatic. I know the clutch fork is correct i did have the wrong one before and it wouldnt shift at all. I ordered one from the chevy dealer it drives now. The amount i let out on the clutch before the cars moves seems right.

It sounds to me like the upper rod connecting the z bar to the pedal is not the right length or you have the wrong z bar.

I'd look into that Nick.

My car was an auto too, clutch pedal is even with brake pedal. I bought all the linkage related stuff from Steve's Camaro's.

After rereading, you definitely have a return spring issue. How is yours configured?
Yes, I conclude this as well. My guess is that he has it going from the fork to the z-bar, which keeps the assembly together but does not return the pedal to the full upright position. It needs to go from the fork to the frame/engine stand. That will accomplish both goals.
