    I built the frame myself, because I love to fabricate. It utilizes a C5 front cradle with relocated upper control arms. I went with a 3 link rear to minimize binding and save weight, should be no problem handling the stock LS3. The rear end is currently set up with 4.11, will probably swap for 3.73 before I put it on the road. These pictures are few months old, will post more when I've got some time.

    Yes, more information. Your brackets almost look die cut

    Thanks for the interest guys. I have dropped the upper points to increase negative camber gain. I did consider adjusting anti-dive, but decided to drive the truck first and change later if necessary.

    Not sure what you mean about my brackets looking duecut. Guess I just take my time to make them as accurate as possible.

    Very cool. I finished my 69 LS/T56 swap this summer. The one thing I don't like is the position of the gas pedal. Kind of moves my knee up a bit more than I would like. You may have to sink the seats back into the rear window area for better leg round. I think cruise control is in the future for me.

    Thanks for the heads up. We did find that same thing when we built my son's truck. I've got the engine set back quite far in mine, so that adds another dimension to pedal position. So far with the seats I'm running and were I've placed them, I feels pretty good, but I won't know until I get further along. Since I've got to rework the firewall, I can extend the footwell if necessary.

    How did I miss this build? Where are you located?

    My computer doesn't work as well with all this drool on the key board

    79 Camaro - I just finished a plain LM7/4l60E swap and have that exact problem with my knee and the gas pedal in my truck. Not sure how to make it more comfortable....

    I haven't changed anything in regards to the gas pedal yet. I'm in sunny soon to be snowy MN. I will have a few months of down coming up to see if I can find a better solution. Funny thing is I had a 70 C10 about 30 years ago and don't remember the cab being that small. Maybe I just got bigger? I'm 6'2" and about 220.

    Sbeck09, thanks! I'm guessing about 6 months. Everything seems to take twice as long as I think it will.Name:  Diffuser.jpg

    Wow! what a great project, it's got me motivated on my project. What is the height from the ground to the bottom of the rocker?
