OK, i have completed the AU live axle into EF, and am now chasing some udjustable lower control arms to fix the pinion angle, or at least allow me to play with the angle.

These are my options as far as i can tell.

and

Now i know the second set are for a Camaro/Pontiac, but what i need is info on the actual length. I have emailed Summit and requested a length measurement on both items, but was hoping someone here may be able to help.

Cheers

Brett

What is your time frame Brett? Is there any difference between EF/EL and AU?

There must be, as the diff now sits up at a slight angle.

I would be willing to have some made, and the time frame is a while. Still need an exhaust before it runs and can be tuned.

My plan would be to possibly cut both the mount points off and have an adjustable bar inserted, same as in the links. Seems easy enough.

Ok there must be a difference in length but what about connection and alignment?

Seems to be ok, for alaignment and connection, But if we had an adjustable lower, then i will be able to correct the pinion angle so the car doesn't try to shake itself to peices when it runs again.

I'd be looking at the upper trailing arms.....there are different length ones depending on model. EF are different to EL, and Tickford ones are different again.
