I had a new set of rancho springs from a 77 camaro parts car.
I ended up measuring a stock 81 camaro and made them that length. Would have liked to go shorter but wasn't sure if it would effect the suspension. They measured 3 3/4 inches. Worked out OK.
Built a set of caltracs at the same time. What a difference, the rear u joint doesn't try to grind its way thru the tunnel now as the power comes on.

|vinniekq2||did you add any springs or just re-arc the old springs?|

rear shackle length firebird
My firebird has longer than stock rear shackles to counteract the 33 year spring sag. I just put new springs in it and it now will clear 30 inch tires with room to spare, ( looks a little to 70's ).
I plan to shorten them up and was wondering if there is a minimim length. They are 5 inches between bolt centers now. thought I'd try about 2.5 - 3inches. Will this be too close to allow the suspension to work properly?
Thanks for your help
