Be sure you hang your sheetmetal on there to be sure you have it placed with the right wheelbase before you weld it in solid! And you need to be sure you put the upper control arm shafts at the right angle. If you tilt the sub frame forward or back you are going to throw that all off. A little is fine, that is what shims are for but I have seen where they are all screwed up and offset upper control arms shafts have to be used to get it aligned. Using a protractor get the correct angle off a stock Camaro.
