My name is Ed Wallace from Ga.. I have just purchased a 67 coupe that I found on this site. The car has drum brakes. I have done conversions on other cars in the past so I have the tech knowledge for the swap. However while searching for conversions have seen alot of 2" drop spindles and I wondering in doing a drop will this hinder tire and wheel options. I am considering either 16" front with 17" rear or 17" front with 18" rear. Thanks to Team Camaro your site has been extremely helpful.

If you 'Google' David Pozzi you will find the Home Page and additional links to other info on his Camaro racing projects.

David is also the moderator of the Suspension & Brakes forum page that "click" (Jim) above refered you to.

Oh, and please visit the Tag Team forum and post your car's numbers if you would so the CRG guys can record the data for their records.
Here is a link to their site with loads of info on your car and it's options - www.camaros.org

Looking forward to your input in the forums;
John M.
