my neighbor has a 55 Chevy truck, which has the Camaro sub frame.
2?s. does the upper control arm use the std. old style alignment shims between the shaft and frame?
what are the alignment specs for a real camaro?
thanks Rod in AZ

What year Camaro? I have the specs up to 86. Older Camaro front ends used shims, either look at the truck or find the year the subframe came from.

If it were my vehicle, I would start with the alignment specs of the donor car and then find an alignment shop that understands how your vehicle's settings might need to be different.

People fear change because it threatens what they know, or what they claim to know.

camaro specs are probly a general guideline. i would just wing it depending on wheel size, offset, vehicle size and weight.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

Agreed, the stock specs are really a starting point for the oe design of the suspension and steering. The final adjustment for caster and camber portion would be tailored to the truck.
