I have never seen that much positive camber on an A body with the engine out.


That front suspension was very innovative for its time. The control arms are custom made arms by "Fat Boy" (Fat Boy was years around before Global West and Dick Morrison) they are narrowed and dropped 2", the spindles are GM '96 B-body spindle. This set up allowed me to run the larger Camaro 1LE Rotors. This same set up is on my Chevelle today.

I knew it! I was going to say that you probably had '77-'96 b-body spindles on it. That swap requires shorter upper a-arms to avoid excessive shimming. Had a friend that did it. He used hotchkis tubular uppers that were shorter.

You probably have Moroso trick coils on it as well so that when the car has an engine in it the suspension comes down quite a ways also while straightening up the camber.......was just saying to myself wow that has to come down alot to get those tires back straight.I do custom suspensions so I am always checking things like that out,and knew you probably had some aftermarket tubular arms and coils for sure.

Ha, I think it's the last part of that sentence that's truer.
