      Sorry for the long delay on the update, but finally got the shocks installed and sway bar. Everything went ok during the install. Next is to have the headers modified so the don't hit the raised steering arms. I will post pics of the finished headers afteris gets back fro the chassis shop.

      Ridetech Tru-Turn with big block

      Finally got the headers finished and received my spacers for the front coilovers. I contacted ridetech and they did not offer any spacers for the strong arms but found some after contacting chassis works. I will post some pics up when I get on the computer.

      Has anyone made a compatible header to fit the Tru-turn 1st Gen Camaro Big Block

      So itís been years since this thread was started. Yet ridetech is still screwing people me included for the sake of a sale with no solution! I went through exactly what I had going into my car. I was told that their complete system with the newest tru-turn would work in my car with the big block. NOT! Has there been any know fixes or solutions out of this situation while still using the ridetech parts ?
      HOPING TO GET LUCKY HERE /// I wish someone would capitalize on a long tube header that would work..
      let me show a hint of my frustration

      I honestly wish someone designed a header that would work with a big block and the truturn. If there was a known header t that worked I would be ordering the entire ride tech front setup

      I believe most run shorty or mid-length type headers to avoid the problem

      was to swap to the rear steer suspension the 1970-up Camaro or Firebird cars came with, or one of the new aftermarket units. I have zero experience with todays aftermarket units but the 1970-up can be used with excellent results. It's lite years better then the old 1955 rear steer.

      I'll never forget taking a 1973 Firebird Formula with a 455 four speed 3.23 12 bolt for a long drive and delivering it for a dealership friend of mine. Before you purists get in an uproar, the 12 bolt was dealer installed! The new owner hated posi but wanted heavy duty.
      That car loved the mountians of Western Pennsylvania! 115-120 felt like 65-70, 145 was so amazingly stable and calm. What a car! It was so different from the 69 396 Camaro I was driving at the time..
