Front upper coil over mounts?

Postby Zanie » Tue Dec 23, 2014 12:41 am

Has anyone adapted an upper coil over mount to their H-Body? Using the normal coil over mount really opens up the coil spring selection.
My neighbor used the Speedtech mounts on his first gen Camaro and it came out sweet.
I don’t imagine Speedtech has a setup for an H-body so I’d be starting from scratch.
Has anyone cut up their upper mounts? It’s a little intimidating, because if I cut up the upper coil and shock mounts, there’s no going back.
This isn’t my neighbor’s car, but pics from the Speedtech site and pro-touring.com.
any input would be great.
Thanks,
Dan

well I did a little digging on the internet.
This vega built by Robbie Miller Race cars features Justin Overkill's upper & lower arms.
The mounts look pretty straightforward.

I'm going with AJE tubular control arms, and Viking Performance coil overs. Sounds straightforward, but I just ordered the parts. I never got a response from Overkill.
