Good day all-
Have a 68 convertible that started life as a 6cyl now has 350/350T non ac.
Am confident the front has 6cyl coils , and the rear does has multi leaf with traction bars.
It sits too high and floats a LOT on the front.
Looking to spend under 2k- with self install for a new

Currently the center of wheel hub to fender lip is 16inch in the rear and 1 in the front.

1- suggestions on what to purchase ?
2 - I listed the hotxhkis kit as it “seems” to hit my mark , however without a good starting point or photo reference of another car I’m hesitant to buy it - it advertises 2inch drop up front and 3inch rear drop.
3- am I missing something or is there more info needed to get some good opinions And advice from the veterans in the forums ?
4- if you have a 67-68 and have bought the Hotchkis kit or similar would you mind sharing the photo and tire OD?
Lastly - I drive this a lot in the spring/summer/fall - it’s not a garage Queen I would like to have better handling and less bounce and body roll!
Thanks !

this is when I had a 3” front and back Hotchkis drop leafs and springs.
17” torque thrust

Then with 18”

it worked fine, even autocrossed with this setup a handful of times before I tubbed it and went to a torque arm suspension.

thanks for sharing ! Car looks awesome !!
On the 80015-2 kit-

did you use the 2 inch lowering springs , and also add 2 inch lowering spindles ?
Also, can you let me know your front tire size and the measurement from the center hub to wheelwell lip ?
Do not use lowering spindles on your Camaro.
Front and back, I used 3” drop.
get 0.5” or 1” tall upper ball joints.
tall lower tie rods
3” drop front an back.
Good alignment with at least 1 deg. Neg camber
And 5+ caster.
Subframe connectors,
good tires.
Go around corners real Fkn fast. I did.
