1968 Chevy Camaro Bushings - Escalation

We Spent The Summer Sorting Out And Fine-Tuning Our '68 Project Car.

While we were doing this upgrade someone asked, "Why do the drop spindles when your car is already low?" The answer is that we did it precisely because the car was low. In other words, with our '68 at its best stance, the control arm angles were all wonky, and to get the control arms parallel to the ground, the front of our car would end up sitting like a 4x4.

The 1.25-inch drop of the Raceseng uprights let us have our stance and proper suspension geometry. We also gained some needed front shock travel.

Easy Breathing
Engine breather systems are often overlooked by builders, and we're no exception. When we originally built our car, we slapped a couple filters on the valve covers and called it good. It was fine for the street, and even for the occasional autocross, but once we hit the road course, and started performing sustained 1.3g gyrations, it proved woefully inadequate. What we needed was a proper system, so we came up with a plan and headed to Pozzi Racing to make it happen.
