'69 Camaro Front End

Today dad started tearing apart the front suspension and steering of his 69 Camaro.

He is replacing all of the stock A-arms, springs, steering box, etc. The replacement parts will add to handling and take away weight. It will remove around 150lbs from the front end

Yeah, he just changed all of his rear suspension too. Punk is worried that I was going to out run him with the new engine combo so he's taking precautions to prevent that

Yes sir. It is the 55 my new motor was originally built for. He ended up building a 422 for it. It runs 10.0s and still has a full interior and even a bench seat.
