I looked at a 68 tonight that had at least an inch thick of spacers on the upper control arm bolts.. this can't be normal.. Do you think it was wrecked? twisted?
Original 6 cyl car someone stuffed a 454 in .. not a show or race car..If he was targeting negative camber and more caster than factory specs it is possible. Without knowing the alignment specs it’s difficult to make any assessment.
Is the car a stock restoration or a restomod?
Not sure what direction the camber would go if you pulled a light 6 cyl out and dropped a heavy big block on the original springs but maybe that is why. If he was looking for negative camber and maximum caster there should be a large stack on the rear bolts and few or none on the front.I looked at a 68 tonight that had at least an inch thick of spacers on the upper control arm bolts.. this can't be normal..

What typically happens on these cars as they age is the frame bend inward at the top or sag if you want to call it that. If you are running factory specs to correct camber you remove shims to compensate for this sag. NO shims is not a good thing IMO and those two thin shims are in there to make your specs as good as they can be.Yes, or just worn out. My car only has 2 shims in it. And they are both on the drivers side. Pretty thin, probably doesn't even need them.
