Has anyone seen these kits? I was browsing online and happened to see a kit that includes the bars, weld on brackets and hardware for just over $200 bucks? Any one use them, or any comments? Seems like a decent start to a 4 link rear suspension.

Helix stuff is made in China, obviously. Sure, not a bad start, but you'll have to cut the heck out of your floorpan to make that work. I assume you're talking about this kit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Triangulated-Rear-Suspension-Four-4-Link-Kit-for-67-69-Camaro-68-74-Nova-/182144816068

There is no floor clearance to run that long of a bar, so that's why a lot of surgery would be required.

There is no upper shock mount included, just tabs. The body back there can't have a coilover mounted to just a pair of tabs, it needs more structure. So that's why RideTech & others have a crossmember for the upper shock mount, with tabs welded to the crossmember.

Keep saving up & buy something better. :)
