I've checked with places and most have sliders that are too narrow. I guess what I am asking is anyone one with a camaro with stock or stock style camaro springs with sliders, what kind of sliders did you use and how did you go about mounting them on to the stock rear subframe. Thanks

they are all the right width that Ive ever seen.

you need to take the eurethane bushings and cut the outer shoulders off!! I use a sawsall...

to mount them correctly you need to remove the stock frame and raise the mount up about 3 inches.

or lower the front some and raise the rear a little.

you should have a 9.5 diff from the two eyes of the leafs as your looking from the side.

I really dislike the slider option due to the inherent mud build up in the mechanism. This in turn tightness up the rear suspension considerably on muddy wet tracks. I prefer this set up. Energy suspension shackle kit and bushings: # 3-2134G - The appropriate AFCO Springs and Lower spring plates, - Polyurethane or Graphite front spring eye bushing, and the drivers side 1.5" adjustable lowering block slider with a passenger side 1" block. This set-up when properly maintained keeps the suspension free and easy to maintain. Hope it helps.

camaro style springs have a larger rear eye .... Landrum makes (or resells) a slider box that will work with them.

an aurguement can be made that they are more bother than they are worth.
