    Thanks. That was helpful. Looks like I do not need the use the offset side since I don't think I have frame sag and the arms have increased built in caster/camber.

    PTFB upper control arm mounting question

    It is flat on the other side. So, it could be mounted either way for alignment purposes. Street vs track I guess. Mine will be street and autocross.

    Battery relocation is easy. There are plenty of kits available. I did that on my 68 Chevelle and also installed a installed a Ford style starter soloid in the trunk next to the battery. Highly recommended. This way the heavy cable going to the front of the car is only hot during starting. You...

    Recovering seats - Heat gun or redo hog rings

    First time installing seat covers. Legendary covers with ACI foam. I've not tried to heat the cover to reduce wrinkles yet. Wondering if I could remove some of the hog rings, adjust and re-attach. Then apply heat as needed or will heat now make a difference? The factory covers did have some...

    Looking for a better bucket seats.

    SPC 97130 Upper Control Arms installed

    Those are very nice arms and I know a lot of engineering went into them. I am shocked at the cost. I looked into those about 18 months ago and they were just under $800 and now a grand.

    Seat Hinge Bushings?

    Did anyone find a good resolution to this bushing issue? I had planned on buying the F-body bushings but after reading comments, it appears they will not work. I then wanted to send mine to that ebay guy but my bushings did not come off in one piece. They were fused to the metal stud.

    Carpet color code on build sheet - 1981

    Thank you for the info. My sheet may be damaged where the carpet code is. Also some of the Factory Code typing is over top of the generic printed Box labels on the sheet so I can't read what some of the boxes designate. I'll see if I can call ACC directly.

    Carpet color code on build sheet - 1981

    I have an '81 Z with silver interior and I contacted a parts place to order ACC carpet. Parts guy said he'd need to call the ACC rep and get back with me. Spoke a few days later and he was told the cars with silver interior did not have carpet colored (or called) silver, it was a type of grey...

    I also would have expected 400 more RPM out of that with a corresponding increase in power. Will be interesting to see what the other intake does.
