This is one of those subjects that if you ask 12 guys how to do it you will get 12 different answers.

You can buy tub kits from both Jegs and Summit racing to get a good start. Does the Camaro have a roll cage?

When you mention "tub", usually you're talking about a "back half" frame kit as well. If you just need a little more space, there are also such things as "mini tubs" that move the spring mounts and sometimes the "frame" rail to gain 2-4" of tire clearance. Of course a back half frame kit costs more to put in than mini tubs, provided there's a mini kit for a late model Camaro.
