i am building a camaro that was started by some one else and i just picked up where they left off. a few things i am having problems with are the rear shocks dont have any where to bolt up to ,seems they have been cut out of the car.the orginal owner had the shocks bolted to angle iron that ran from one side of the car to the other,this angle was also used to set fuel cell in.im not sure if this will work,any one ever seen any thing like this or any good ideas on way to fix it.by the way they were bearing end shocks. i can run them anyhow i want to rules are open on rear shock placement.

oba: used to race a camaro in hobbies where the rear shock placement was pretty liberal. what we did was run 'em up through the trunk floor (if your rules allow that) and mounted the top to some 1 inch tubing that was either a hoop mounted to the frame or went straight across from the down kickers on the roll cage. Can't remember which, but I think you get the idea. This way you can run 9 inch strokes and keep the shock as straight up and down as possible. The Camaro I ran loved it the softer we went with the shocks in the rear, I think we ended up with Pro Shock #wb 94. Hope this helps
