Any suggestions for making your own 1/2 leaf on the left rear or beefing up the front segment of the left rear leaf on a camaro?????
Speedway motors sells them for $180.00 but surley you can re-arch an old spring and make one with old spring???
Any ideas would be great really just looking for more forward bite off the corner 70's camaro 175 lr 150rr 900lf 1050rf car is fast but need a little more off the corner!!
Thanks for any help

Take a old one and just put the front half on. Add cross, easy up shock on RF, less stagger.

use an old spring pack and cut it behind the spring perch. go ahead and arch the whole pack just like u normally would and clamp the front section together close to the bolt that mounts it in the chassis. prolly a 225-250lb 16'' coil on a long coilover eliminator behind rear 15* back and 15* inboard. 5-3 valve left rear shock. its gonna be pretty radical from my experience.
