Author Topic:   drive shaft clearance to body problem
posted November 12, 2003 11:34 AM
78 camaro. i removed the 4 body mount bushings between front clip and the body.
this dropped body about 1.5 inches.
this has created one clearance problem
i'm having trouble with.

my drive shaft now hits the drive shaft well
up where it slides into transmission.

what should I do to increase the clearance?
pound out well, cut well and make a new box around the well, lower trany ?

There is a 4 inch wide piece of metal that strengthens the tunnel or so im told (I use solid body mounts in my car) that you need to cut out to get the drive shaft to fit. Eddie
