With over 12K views of your post people are looking. Things have been slow on the forum for a while now.
Keep plugging away at it, soon you will see what looks like a car again.

So i picked up a donor frame for the car .was from a 84 ss which was awsome since mine is a 84 as well.paid 500 and its completly redone .no fixed body mount holes or anything like that.frame rails have been boxed and lca and uca have been braced .its coated in por15 insode and out .i figured it would cost me alot more to have the 84s frame at this point so it was a no brainer .trying to post pics

I think you can get away with the wider rear, if you run later model camaro or vette wheels with their higher backspacing numbers

Thanks ! The rear came with the mounts for a g body welded on already.im trying to mock up the rear with the stock control arms and springs .i know i need adjustable uca and lca .i am kinda lost at how the upper spring pearches come out.i see there is a bolt but my replacement frame has no hardware .it just seems like the body is in the way to get the upper bolt for the pearch any one have an idea how to remove them.

That was fun .at least i know whats there now. Can get new bolts now

Front suspensi9n all apart.have the upper control arms rebuikt with new bushings and cross shafts .still have to do the lowers .painted black and cross shafts silver.
Replacing the crossshafts isnt to hard of a job if u want to keep your origunal arms and not get the aftermarket replacement.the cross shafts i used are off set to allow more positive camber i guess. .its all ac delco parts from rock auto https://image.ibb.co/cXrULJ/20180612_213648.jpg

2 weeks ago I painted my lowers up really nice. They looked brand new. Then i scraped them all up on the driveway while pressing the ball joints. Then i beat them up with the BFH to get them in place because the new bushings were fat. Then I scraped all the paint on the bottoms with my jack while putting in the springs. I was disappointed with this outcome =p

Good luck!

Not scraping them was a challenge for sure. Thats why i chose black easy touch ups
