    Is anyone out there using a certain set of brackets on the F body/ls swap Camaros that have AC? I know the way my vehicle sits there is absolutely no way I could utilize the original AC brackets from my ls6. See below.

    Anyway, what are you guys doing? Please point me to a thread if I have missed it. Thanks!

    I can't answer your question...just had to say I'm really jealous of those AFR heads. Those look great!

    By the way, if you haven't already found out, your going to love those Speed Tech control arms. I've had mine for 5 years now and they are great arms. You can get a full 4-5 degrees positive caster and the negative camber you need with hardly any shims.

    I'm still renting because I can't save up for a house with this thing in my name...basically putting off my life to build her haha. Thanks.

    Also, I'm super excited to see how they feel and adjust the recoil/etc. I plan on taking her around the U.S. to shows/on road trips so hopefully won't be too boisterous and harsh of a ride. Then again....I did put in a .617 lift CAM. We will see haha.

    Actually I would be inclined to go with this ITC BILLET A/C Bracket for $118 and save a lot of coin over the Kwik. I would also use their alt bracket for $118 as well

    I used the kwik brackets also but did not the fact that you must trim the inner fender well for it to fit. I went with The vintage air front runner kit for the LS
