Thanks for the order, Randy.


Here's a 69 we did a few years back, this one is obviously minitubbed but you see we went under the axle.

Thanks to all who replied and posted pictures!!

I ended up going with Ridetech's 4 link set from Dale @ Schwartz's Performance-Dale thanks for the info.

It's going to be a winter project to install the rear suspension and new sniper fuel system. I have had the car since 81 and still has the same air shocks, but got rid of the N50's years ago

thanks again!!

Glad to hear that Dale got you taken care of! Bret may have some other pictures that he might want to throw up here when he gets back but I thought I'd add the pictures that I had to the thread for you. These were back when the 48 Hour Camaro was first finished:

My exhaust dumps in front of my Strange 9", but would like to extend it out a further. When my car is up on my 2-post lift, the rear droops all the way down to the point where the springs are unloaded and the rear appears to be hanging on the shocks, four-link, etc. If my exhaust went under my rear, the rear would be sitting on the tail pipes when I jacked the car up by the frame. How do I prevent this or what am I doing wrong?

Thanks Dale & Josh,

I appreciate it. I too was wondering about the suspension resting on the pipes when at full drop. I also wondered how much it reduced the drumming? I assume that alot of the drumming in my car is caused by the exhaust reflecting in the axle well area as I currently dump mine just after the mufflers.

Thanks again for your insight. Brew.

Put the tail pipes up and over the rear end?
IMO tail pipes under the rear are just ugly and are a copout. I have done it once in my car building career when i was 20 that was on a Prostreet 85 Mustang with a 4 link and 33 x 21.5 Mt tires on it.

I like em over the rear just because I donít like to see them and Iím a glutton for punishment. Itís a fun challenge too.
