Amazingly enough if you want to run a 10in rim with 275's this system is not for you. Atleast, thats my experience with it anyway.

On my 67 i would of had to roll the fender, modify the inner fender just to make turn in it. And thats with a 9.5 275 wheel with 5.5bs.

With an after market subframe i can run a 9.5rim 6.8bs 275 wheel with and lock to lock with no rubbing, and no inner fender work. The oem frame is strong but it has its limitations with big tires. IMO, i think it was a mistake for Ridetech to make that claim. I waisted 1k on the system!

Im not bashing them just is what it is!

It truly is amazing that one can buy a part that generally will fit within fractions of an inch into a car that is 40+ years old. I have owned my car for 27+ years now, and when I first owned it, you couldn't buy hardly anything.

Anyways, in a nutshell, with a Pontiac motor- no go. I hopes this helps someone.
I appreciate the feedback. I'm sure others do as well. There is a lot of conjecture and bloviating that goes on with things like this by people who have no actual experience installing the system or driving the system. You have obviously installed it and its good to have some detailed feed back.

I did not try and bash ridetech. I only wanted to show people what was going on with my setup and see what others had done. I was hoping people who actually drove this system would give some feedback.

With the detroit speed subframe -

Haven't driven it much or very hard yet but haven't noticed any rubbing yet.
