Staggered shock 67?
« on: June 10, 2010, 06:55:25 PM »
Correct me if I'm wrong.....If I use the lower plates and shocks from a 69, all should be happy with the world?  The car is already on multi leaf springs, but currently non staggered setup.  I really hate traction bars.  302 (not real) and Tremec falling in this weekend.  Thanks.  Dave

The upper mounts are different from 8 and 9.

I tried to put and axle from a 68 camaro into my 67, and the left shock will not bolt up. The top of the shock is in the wrong place. If you must do it, you will have to buy a repop upper left shock mount patch panel and weld it into your trunk after cutting a hole for it. On the plus side, if you do that, just bolt a steel plate over the old shock mount hole.
