View Full Version : tubular a-arms for 73 camaro?

12-12-2004, 11:25 AM
I would like to know if there is any company that makes tubular a-arms for second gen camaros?

I know GW makes upper ones, but I also want the lower ones for QA1 coilovers like for the 67-69 camaro they make.

Thanks for any help.

I have the GW uppers on my wife's 73 Camaro.
I would think GW will make lowers soon, but I have no special info from them. I have some photos and info on my web page.

Speed Tech may have uppers, don't know about lowers from them, but I'd think they should be coming...

i have never delt with a company that had better customer service than fatman. had an upper and lower pair for a 72 chevelle. the upper ones would not fit this car. they took them back and built a custom pair at no charge. didnt pay shipping at all either and didnt mind that they were already powder coated black by me.

ill be buying a set for my 79 from them.

Just be warned the Fatman uppers don't appear to have the added caster the others do, so there is no gain in handling.

thanks for the info. i didnt know that, but then again i dont know the most about handling setups. i have the stock caster setting for my formula, have the toe set to stock as well because i drive that far everyday and my camber is only -.5* to again keep from wearing my tires out too soon.

Piet is lurking... I have the same question for my '73. Have heard good things about Heidt’s Hot Rod Shop .

I have a buddy who managed to get a set of lowers from GW... They are out there, just not advertised.
