youd be fine running the parts on it just usa new bushings and im not shure on the spring height on them but i run 11" but thinking on going to 12 in my metric to try to get more roll maybe.

camaros need 12 without a wt jack. and depending what ride ht you want may need a spacer above the spring also.

You definitely want to get the 12" springs, the shorter ones will not give you enough clearance unless you use jacking bolts or spacers. You also want to change to the taller Afco balljoints to give you a higher roll center. If you dont know a lot about front end geometry, I strongly reccomend you buy steve smiths book "Street Stock Chassis Technology". It covers everything with a camaro you could ever dream of, front to rear.
