Would you use tubs from a 67/68 Camaro?

I don't know. I haven't done the research. Actually was just thinking about taking the dimensions and seeing whats available.

I used some QA1 coil overs on my car. The top attached to the original top shock hole. The bottom attached to a new mount on top of the trailing arms. This only works on my car because we used aluminum bushing at the trailing arm attach point. I started out with 200 LB springs. They went flat almost immediately. I changed over to 400 lbs srings and that solved all my problems. It's not a Cadillac ride but who cares
