SO now I am working on just making my own spindles. This seems like the best route for me, since I can dial in exactly what I want. I found some photos of some of the Trans am spindles, I plan on using a similar design. Mono ball upper/lower joints. Ive got speedway engineering 5x5 grand national hubs and coleman sells a weld on spindle pin that I am going to start building off..

Here is the spindle I was going to steal some ideas from and build it similar to this guy.





Id like to end up in the 6 degree KPI range and zero (or less than an inch) of scrub with an 18x11.

Made a little progress. Made a motor plate and got that tacked in. I needed to set the motor where I wanted it, next I plan on building the "sub frame" for the lower control arms. I think I am getting things figured out. I know I am 7" back from where my old motor was. And I had my old motor 2-3 inches back. So I'll call it 10" set back. Unsure on the height but the engine is very low in the chassis. I think I should be ok with pan clearance, but I have already explored some options of making a pan about 1-1.5" shorter if I need.




I'll have front and rear plates, as well as a tranny mount..

If you closely interpret my posts. I said... "made a motor plate" .That could mean I made it, some kid in china made it, or in this case you cut it for me. And did the high quality programming

Are the front rails in the factory location, width wise?

Motor plate looks good, interested in seeing this come together.

I don't care who made it - it looks good!



Why not have your "machinist" (LOL) make you some uprights out of billet material?
