Does anyone have stock 1st gen frame dimensions? Specifically dimensions to check the frame for square? I know the tolerances from GM weren't that great, but I noticed today that my passenger side rail, the tip of the frame is rolled back a 1/4" or so. I don't think it's anything major, it's possible that something bumped into it while the car was laying around, but I was going to check the frame for square anyways, now I will definitely, just to be sure.

Any help? Chicane maybe?

Thanks for any help!

I have used the measurements that are found on David Pozzi's site.


There is a link just below the end of the alignment specs. to a pdf file with the factory 1st gen Firebird specs., should work on a Camaro.

Those would be the ones. I believe they come from the original Guldstrand SCCA Trans Am chassis preparation manual.....well, at least the one I have anyway. It is the same one I have been using for years and I think it jives.
