traction bars, 67 Firebird, 71 rear end

Hello, I am looking into getting traction bars for my 67 Firebird. My problem is my rear end is out of a 71. Now do I need traction bars that will fit 67 or 71? or with either one work? Thanks

Is that 71 Firebird rear end in the 67? If not, you will find that the 71 rear end is quite a bit wider than the 67.

you'll need to use second generation traction bars (something out of an early 70's firebird/camaro) if you're going to use that rear end, but you'll probably have to modify some 1st Generation endlinks to fit the bar.

I'm a Camaro guy too, I currently own a third gen. It's a 92 t-top.

check out www.camarosource.ca & www.thirdgen.org

both great sites with a plethora of knowledge pertaining to Camaro's along with great message boards and some knowledgable Camaro guys.

I seen the thread on her that centerline posted that shows you how to make those traction bars. I was thinking about making them but when I looked under my car to see if I would be able to I seen that there is no way I can bolt it to the front of the leaf spring there some sort of brace in the way . so I will just have to go with the regular traction bars.
