Cool

What is the difference between a 1967 and 1968 Z/28 12 bolt rear ends?

Neither have shock mounts ON the rear end, the mounts are on the lower spring plate.

So that is NOT the answer.

Nope, not that I know of. You could see this difference in a parking lot.

That is one of the differences, but that is not what I am looking for. There is something else that can be seen from a hundred feet away. I'll give you a hint, it is there BECAUSE of the mono leafs.

'67 Had a radius rod, and the '68 didn't.

Ok, I have to give it to you, but it was a "traction bar". The 67 had mono leaf springs and needed the traction bar to keep the rear end from wraping up.

I had one in my truck for years and recently sold it. Got $650 (as I remember) for it and it was a 3.08 one legger and I had cut the bracket for the traction bar off years ago! One year only and only 12 bolt.

It's your floor Dan.

Ok, the Detroit Auto Show just happened, what year was the first one? Hint, it had a different name then. It is also called by another name today, but is known by most as the Detroit Auto Show, showcasing the big 3.
