48 Hour Camaro - Product Detail - RIDETECH FRONT SUSPENSION
Some new trick stuff is going on the 48 Hour Camaro. The RideTech 1967-1968-1969 Camaro front steering setup helps fit a 10" wide wheel on the front of the car while at the same time nearly eliminates all bump steer. And don't forget about the Triple Adjustable Coil-Over front shocks.

1968 Camaro Detroit Speed Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 -We wanted our 1968 Camaro to retain its classic
appearance, but handle and drive like today's best sports cars. To
accomplish this, we relied on a Speed 3 front suspension kit from Detroit
Speed and Engineering that we obtained through Classic Industries. This kit
consists of tubular upper and lower control arms, a coil over spring and
shock kit, new quick ratio steering components, and is installed into the
stock Camaro subframe.
Next time, we will be installing a DSE Quadra Link rear suspension to
complete the handling upgrades on this 1968 Camaro.

Ridetech: Why Shocks Matter
Filmed mostly at the 2012 Nashville GoodGuys show, Ridetech questions some
of the most influential customers on why they use RideTech shocks. While
the video primarily covers shocks, it also exposes the influence and
importance of the Ridetech brand.
RIDETECH level 2 coil over + 4 link install (71 Chevy Camaro)
Ridetech level 2 coil over + 4 link install on 71 Camaro. This is our 2nd
RIDETECH suspension upgrade completed, with this group of friends; our
first on a "F" body! For the "F" body, we had to break out the welder!
The older American Thunder series flowmaster transverse muffler/exhaus had
to be removed to clear the upper link brackets. Andy, Don, Mike, Ray, Jim
and Terry, thank you so much for your help on this. Replaced the
Flowmaster "american thunder series" tranverse muffler with two 3 chamber
50 series flowmasters. Ran the 2.5 inch runs under the differential. The
pipes allow for wider tires down the road. Car has more Pep! The guys at
Guaranteed Mufflers and Brakes in Fremont, were great! Really happy with
the new deep sound.
Next step: Finalize the ride height!
48 Hour Camaro - Product Detail - VINTAGE AIR AC UNIT
The 1967 Camaro used
for the 48 Hour Build wasn't equipped from the factory with AC. That didn't
stop us from getting the best air conditioning system available! The
Vintage Air Gen 4 system made the install of the condenser, evaporator and
all the other components a breeze. Rick Love shows the details in this
1969 Pontiac Firebird Front Suspension Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - We reassembled our restored front
suspension with some new tricks to make our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy"
drive and handle better. First we replaced all the stock worn-out control
arm bushings with some new Global West Del-A-Lum bushings for minimal
deflection and smooth articulation. Then we replaced all the loose
steering components with new parts from Classic Industries, including a new
steering box, tie rod ends, center link, ball joints, idler arm, and
pittman arm. Once we could put the wheels back on, we rolled the subframe
under the body, aligned it, and bolted it up. Out back, we added some
Del-A-Lum bushings to the Detroit Speed & Engineering 3" drop leaf springs
and put the rear axle assembly back in the car. Classic Industries had
more hard-to-find nuts and clips for the front leaf spring mounts. Now we
can hang all the sheetmetal back on the car and start the panel alignment!
