Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

My son and I got some of the front suspension mocked up today. Again had to set the tires in place to take a peek at the end goal.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Always have loved those tread patterns.

Hopefully that superchaged LS3 will have enough power to turn those big things.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

I ordered the ProForged centerlink, idler arm, tie rod ends, and adjuster sleeves and received them today so we put them on tonight. After reading the posts on how they listened to the folks here and adjusted their center link to fit correctly I'd give them my business. I must say the look like nice pieces and fit well. I still have the original center link which appears to be in pretty good shape just in case.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Robert, all of the suspension components are Detroit Speed. I ran into problems on their lower coil over mounts since I'm mini tubbing (i.e. bottom of coil over was out too far) so thanks to Mike McMasters it has a set of RideTech lower coilover mounts.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Finally got to spend a little more time on the frame. We put the front and rear antisway bars on. The front bar sure is big. Looking at how much the rear extends past the frame I'm thinking I'd like to have one about 3" - 4" narrower. I have a fair amount invested in the 12 bolt now though. It's now officially a roller with skinny winnies on it.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

I haven't posted in awhile but I'm making some progress. I started fixing some of the rust, put the mini tubs in (not welded yet), new trunk pan, put the body on the frame for mock up, and started trial fitting the engine. I haven't started the tunnel surgery but this will give you an idea on how far the tranny is down without the tunnel cut.

Like everyone before me I just had to set the rear tires in the wheel wells to get a glimpse of the finished product for encouragement.

Here's some pics.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Are you using the new Holley mounts and crossmember?

Would like to see your floor cuts for the the T56.
What model T56 is that from or is it a T56 Magnum?

Do you have a part number for the Delphi 600 gear box?

Looking at the pics leaves me saying " I wish I would of mini tubbed it "
