106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to buy new steering and suspension components ??? on: June 04, 2012, 03:41:31 PM
Not all Moog parts are made in the US anymore.  Be careful.  I replaced all of my front end parts with "Classic Suspension" parts from HeartBeat City.  Yes they are made over seas, but I wanted the "Correct" OEM appearance.  Its funny hearing guys complain of certain parts being made overseas.  I would say ALL of the reproduction parts we buy for our cars are made overseas.  Just my .02

Gary, that is awesome!!!  That was exactly what I was looking for!!  My guards also have the "SP" markings.  Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply Gary.  Any markings on them ??

Anyone else add anything to this topic?  Still trying to determine what is different between the repro bumper guards and original GM ones? Anyone have an original set??  Thanks again.

A firebird crossmember looks identical (almost) to a Chevy BB 4 speed crossmember. They are different.  The subframe will work.

What's the % of subframes with this problem that requires shaft replacement? Not including hammered track cars. Not sure what it has to do with panel alignment since sheetmetal does not rely on the subframe for that. You can drop a subframe and the sheetmetal maintains it's position. Subframes are on Craigslist quite often.
Good point.  Here is something interesting:

AMD claims the chassis sags over time which accounts for the need to add more and more shims to the caster/camber. If that is true then wouldn't it sound logical that even though a used 40 years +GM chassis is available that you would still face the same sagging issues?
  Just a thought.

I have heard of this as well. Moog even sells an offset upper control arm shaft to compensate.  Having said that, who wants to deal with body panels not lining up when a couple of shims and/or the Moog control arm shaft will solve the problem.  Jusy my .02

I have heard of fitment issues with body panels, look for a good used GM one. They are all over EBay.
Here is one on Team Camaro;

No I'm afraid I couldn't find out much information between the two.  I have an original rear set I remember had NO markings on them.  I did notice the repro's have the letter "R" on the tab which seems to be upside down.  Thats all I have at this point.
115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 front bumper guards on: May 16, 2012, 03:29:52 PM
That is awesome thank you very much for the pictures.  I just picked up a pair on EBay, seller stated they were original GM.  Just wanted to confirm  if it was worth the 160 to rechrome or buy NEW repro's.  I'm NOT going to rechrome repro's at 160 a pair when I can get them for 119 new.  Thanks again.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I just wanted to confirm I had to drill holes in the valance.  Any idea how I can tell the repro ones to the original GM ones??
117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 front bumper guards on: May 15, 2012, 07:44:48 PM
Anyone have original front bumper guards on their 69 ??  I'm looking for a picture if possible of the lower mounting points on the valance.  Thanks Smiley

Thanks Paul, but I was looking for a service to rechrome the plate and restore it.

Anyone have a good source for restoring a 1969 4 speed console shifter plate (Rosewood) ??  Thx.

I just installed new shields from Heartbeat City. Look pretty damn good to me. I was pleased with the quality. Didn't use the staples though.
