would anybody be interested in sharing some info on the upper A-arm switch. I am building a new car for next season and was wondering if it would be worth the trouble. I do have the Camaro spindls on the car now, this is a metric frame I am working with. Thanks, Mansfield

We use a left metric upper on the right side of our metric car,helps you get caster split.As for the camaro spindles the snout height is different than the metric.

With the camaro spindles be SURE to check and fix your bumpsteer. It appears that the whole draglink will need to be lowered in the car. With stock location the right front toes out .100 inch for every inch of bump(if I remember correctly)

Yes we do,and when you look you can't really notice.You can tell there is something different.Helps with front end alignment.Must work because we won 4 features in 2004!

If you use the center link from a 82 camaro with a V-6 the bumpsteer will be much closer, less adjustment required. MUST BE FOR A V-6 CAR!!!!
