    Looks like a Tilton 4000 series. A few years old though because I don't think they put that emblem on their products anymore, but that is the older Tilton Engineeering emblem.

    My vote would be no. The pinto spindle isn't as tall and that could change upper arm angles in a bad way. The Camaro front-end is already pretty decent out of the box.
