As some of you probably noticed I have an 80s Z28 air dam on my 9C1.

I'm having a little problem with it and could use some suggestions.

Sorry for the dark photo. It's just a little too low. How can I fix it?




Anyone want their driveway swept?

About this much:



I had to hack the ZQ8s a bit. I haven't done the back yet. Before I do I might go for a ride and see if I can scoop up a few chipmunks.

This was a few years ago, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that when I bought my air dam from Chris M. it was only $6. Might be more now, but worth checking out. Hell even I could afford $6!

While I was looking for the 9C1 air dam I found a 4th gen Camaro air dam. They are a bit shorter and angled forward. I might see if I can make it fit. For the time being chipmunks under 1/2" tall can feel (relatively) safe now that the rear springs are in. Smile

I know the air dams aren't expensive, just having a little fun.

These are the Sprint springs that Anthony sold me. Thanks again.

I'd like to put some kind of limit straps to keep the springs in when jacking the rear. New shocks aren't in the budget. Other than that I like it, It's like a whole new car.

A couple zipties to the upper pocket should take care of that problem. Smile

2nd pass at alignment and it's now at -.7° camber and 8.1° caster. OK it's not really 8°, it's just easier to do 1 full turn on the steering wheel than it is to measure a 20° at the tire. Point is both side are the same. Thats right both the same. I don't go in for this correct for the crown in road stuff. I spend more time in the left highway lane than I do on the right side of any road.

I had difficulty with one of the bolts. I had a tough time breaking it loose and the bolt spun so I had to pull the tire to get at it. Cost a couple extra smokes for that one. In case you were wondering I have no shims on one of the bolts. If I get ambitious I'll recheck it in a week or so.
