Are you running the 10 or 12 bolt?
What brand and size wheels and tires on front and rear?
Please include off-sets for the wheels.
Did you have to modify the wells to have clearance?
What steering box are you using?
I will be running Wilwood disc on all 4 corners also.
Which part numbers did you go with?
Did the kit come with the coil overs, or a separate purchase?
Sorry so many questions, but your 66 has the stance I am looking for. Much easier to consider what works for someone else, so since you have been down that road, I would rather ask you.
Thanks for the kind words guys. Steve I totally understand about seeing what works for other people. I bought this car last fall and spent most of the winter on this forum and others researching to find out what will fit or not.
I hate to do things twice.
The first thing I did was replace wheels and tires. I went with US Mag Rambler (U111) wheels, rears are 18x9.5 fronts are 18x8. There is no option for backspace, they are both setup right in the middle (rear - 5.25 front - 4.5). I also went with Nitto NT 555 G2 tires, rear 275/40 front 245/45 (overall height is exactly the same). There is a pic on the US Mag website (in the Rambler wheels section) of a 66 Chevelle with the same size, I figured if they fit on that car they would fit on mine. There is no issue with anything rubbing, and I have not modified anything on the car for them to fit. Honestly, I think I can get a bit wider tire on the rear since there is plenty of room. I might do that when it is time to replace them.
I have the stock power steering box installed right now. My plan is to upgrade that at some point. I am leaning toward the Borgeson 12.7x:1 ratio box. Should make the steering feel more like a modern car.
I have the stock 10 bolt rear end in the car right now, I plan to upgrade that to a 9” this winter (looking at the Moser or Strange kits).
I wanted to car to handle like a modern car and have a low stance, but not too low. I found the RideTech compete coil over set (part # 11230201) looked like it would meet my needs. Everything was included in the kit, you can take a look at it on their website. The install was VERY easy, however I did run into 2 small issues with the sway bars. They were easily fixed, I can explain more later if you are interested. Since my steering links looked a bit “worn” I also replaced them with RideTech part # 11249570. The entire front suspension and steering (minus the PS box) is new on my car, so I should be all set for a while.
Since I am planning to replace the rear end this winter, I just replace my front brakes (kept the drum on the rears). The Wilwood website seems to be down this morning so I cant get you a part number but I can get it for you later if you are interested. I went with 6 piston 12.88” one-piece rotors. They bolted up without any issues. My car had the factory non power (single reservoir) master cylinder so I had to replace it to work with the Disc brakes. I went with the Wilwood master with attached prop valve. Works perfectly.
I think I answered all your questions, if you still have more I would be willing to chat on the phone if that helps. I will also say that I purchased everything (except wheels and tires) from Matt and Matts Classic Bowties. He is a sponsor on here, you can find him in the sponsor section (MCB). He was VERY helpful and gave me great prices on everything.
