67 Camaro

.....Summit brand. Fit was very good...….but getting the leaf spring bracket 3 bolts through it took a few passes. Those frame clips bend up when bolt mis-aligns so had to pull and bend back. Also drilled the front clip frame/sub-frame connector and installed the 4 bolts each side per instructions.

Yes, rear caged nut clips can be a pain in the butt.
My fixes are twofold:
1. Remove rear seat bottom, optional in using an aircraft drill bit, because of length, a pilot hole from the bottom through pan, then drill a 1 inch diameter hole from inside, and usea flat washer, lock washer, and/or a locknut, and bolt together; Seat bottom covers holes.
2. Buy a couple flea market 9/16 inch wrenches and using a torch, heat and bend wrench(s) so they fit into the slots and placed over the caged nuts.

Later, you can weld connectors to frames.
