I am going to be making a completely new superstock for next year. the car will consist of a clip and though a fabricated rear clip in the rear.
I just want to know what front clip would be best to use??
I also want to know what control arms, spindles, and all that would be best to use with the clip.
any ideas would help, I know of some guys that use different clips and different front part combinations at our track but they will talk around what they are using for sure.
I have always just used the clip that came on the camero that I built into the car.
I just want to go a step up and build the best I can get for next year. thanks

not sure what sanction you run under, but I know a chassis builder, and what he WANTS to build supers out of.

early 70's impala stub. Strong wide, and not very heavy concidering the source. They are EXTREMELY hard to fing here in northern MN.

stock lowwer a arms with adjustable swedge tube kind of uppers.

"wide metric" spindals and brakes. They are very strong and very light.

If you cant find a impala stub to use, the camero or nova (no rear steer) is the next best thing.

M1 - what are wide metric spindles and brakes? Are S10 ones the same as metric?

the bigger "metric" cars. Implala's, delta 88's and them big buick LeSabre's.

S-10 spindals are the same as monte carlo, regals, cutlass and Gran Prix's.
