Update: More Pics!

Today my new HID Headlights came in, I will provide a detailed installation if some of you guy's ever decide to go with HID's in the future...that will commence on monday.



I also went to the Tire Shop and picked up my Boze Rims where they had the Toyo T1-R's mounted, balanced ect! The tire sizes are 245/35/18 front & 285/35/18 rear...man are they wide compared to my old one's which were 225/45/17 front & 245/45/17 rear...you can see the difference in one of the pics. I also repainted the brake brackets, center part of the rotors (black) and the calipers (red)...I will upgrade to the Z-06 Calipers probably in the fall or next winter along with an air ride kit & tubular k-member/a-arms!






Here is what has to be done for the correct fitment of a 10" rim with a 6.25 backspacing on a 3rd gen Camaro...first you have to remove the bump stoppers, then you have to cut the inside of the fender which is shown to prevent the tire/rim from rubbing and then you have to massage/hammer the part where the rear seatbelts are held in place (down low where you see the red battery cable running)...mind you I removed mine outta there a while back because no one sits in the back anymore! and there you have it...not that much in modding for the big rims to fit nicely tucked in the fender well, I will post up more pics when the car is on the ground next week!

Looks sharp, its not uncommon for bigger tire/wheel combos to require some "finesse" in the rear.

isnt it supposed to be level, not at an angle ?

how easy is it to adjust ?

how much of a difference does it do with traction and the handling ?

The bar normally sits at that angle, even the factory one. They are more so geared towards lowered cars or vehicles with oversized tires.

It's at an angle because there is no weight on the wheels. Once the car is on the ground, it will be some what level. The Panhard bar and LCA's with the "solid bushing" will greatly increase ridgidity of the rear end. The adjustability allows you to center the tires (in the wheel wells) on a lowered car.
