The first two are with my new rear spring setup and the others are with some old stock A-body springs.

I just fell in love with that car.. Now I want mine just like it lol.
 
yes he did:cool:

He turned my limping stock GN into a sleeper.. it's so much fun to drive now.

BTW I think your car is just plain gorgeous, really... it's near perfect.

If you dont mind, what are the specs for your wheels/tires/brakes/suspension?

If you have it all listed somwhere, I'd love the link as opposed to retyping.
Or, you can email a doc to glockandroll (at) austin.rr.com

Why would you recommend a touch more backspacing on the rears? Are you having some problems with rubbing?? I actually love how nice and tight you have the rears in there!

I also live in Katy and my plan was to build mine excactly like yours except mine is a clone and will have a turbo 6.0 pretty soon after I get the body like I want it, I hope. If it isnt to much to ask i would love to see it in person.
Thanks Robert

Im running a 1/4" billet spacer back there right now making it 6" BS and yes when i pull into a parking lot at a steep angle and the rear twist a bit i get a slight squeal from inside rub.

What would be the max I could go with those rims in the back without rubbing? What did you do to the front to lower it? I want to turn an all stock car into how yours looks without the huge rears lol.

OK, now I'm confused :confused:
You run 5.75" b.s. with a 1/4" spacer (=5.5" b.s.) but you recommend 6"+ due to rubbing on the inside ?? I think you would want 5.25-5.5 b.s.



Sitting in line, waiting for the gates to open at BG :biggrin:

yeah my bad, im sorry if i confused anybody, i had a brain fart, a lot on my mind lately. The wheels are 6.25" BS and i run a 1/4" spacer making them 6" So 6"-5.75 would be ideal if the notch is similar to mine. John thanks for pointing that out so it doesn't screw anybody over.

My 86 T Type. GTA wheels, Cut IROC springs in the rear for now and cut Hotchkis springs in front. I didn't realize how much it dropped till I looked at some of these and some old photos:wink:

I like the red inner fenders and the GSX scheme! Looks great!:biggrin:







You guys are going to make me do some more trickery to my car for this coming season! Gotta keep up with the Jones'!!:p

Nice car!

Do you have rear spring isolators installed with the rear a-body 2" drop springs?

Do you ever take your ride up to the car meet at Home Depot off of Fry on Saturday nights?
