Re: Lifting Rear of 1966 El Camino
For my 65 ElCamino, I had to go to 15x8 Wheel Vintique rallys with a 5" backset to clear the fender lip with Mickey Thompson Sportsman 255/60's. That puts the lower shock mount very close to the wheel flange, but a slight trimming clears them easy. 4 door Station Wagon springs will raise it a couple of inches and give a harsher ride.
OLDED - It's STOCK if it's made by GM and it fits!
