67 g.t. 390


Post by cat crazy » 04 Nov 2013, 21:00

been working on the 67 , have installed 69 towers and all inner fenders / radiator support . installed t.c.p. rack and pinion with control freak a- arms . you are supposed to be able to run stock spring and seat with control arms but didn't work due to the fact the seat could not rock back due to the cross tube on upper arm . now have to buy coil over . I think I will be happy when done but its getting kind of crazy . also did the 1 inch Shelby drop , the wedge they send you is for 4 bolt ball joints . replacement arms have 3 bolt and there is not enough edge distance to drill out for 4 bolt . there is a 3 bolt wedge but supposedly is for the 1 and 3/4 drop or something like that , hence the expensive control freak arms to prevent ball joint bind after the 1 inch drop. any one planning on doing the 1 inch drop make sure you do the 1 3/4 with 3 bolt wedge if you plan on running stock upper a- arm
