    My rub is actually on top of the front tire. I just got the shim from Global West yesterday so thats on my agenda for this week. I have sub frame connectors but not installed yet. I wanted to get the suspension issues worked out first. Thanks

    I have to assume with all the work that has been done to your car that the body mount bushings were replaced.

    I wonder for two reasons...
    Saggy bushings could contribute to a rub, and

    I have Stainless Works headers that were prototyped on your car I think.
    How could I be nervous after reading the Holley thread, right? :eek:

    I went back to the build thread, but it starts with a nice freshly painted and mounted subframe. So if they were replaced, are they solid or what type?

    If they weren't replaced I guess you'll be doing it before installing frame connectors.

    Btw, I love your car!

    Yea I replaced the bushings when I got the car, but now I bought the solid ones and I am gonna install them before the sub frame connectors.

    Thanks for the compliments and I love love love my stainless works exhaust system.

    Nice build. Have a question? Is you frame stands clam style or pre clam? Reason I ask is because i have pre clam style and my motor sets at a lean with carshop mounts.

    Yes mine are the "preclam" also. My motor initally leaned to the rear....I shimmed up on my transmission mount to get it to 3 degree. I have no vibration and everything is smooth.

    Well its official. My car sold at Mecum Harrisburg for $32,000 in the bid goes on area. I was kinda sad to see it go, but at the same time I wanted something that me and the wife could jump in and go across the country if we wanted, so we bought a C6 Corvette. Here is a link to Mecum auction results...http://www.mecum.com/lot-detail.cfm?lot_id=PA0714-188695

    I would often wonder why people would build something and then turn around and sell it...till I did it. :confused: Enjoy the new ride.
