    1968 Camaro front subframe. Which one?

    Complete Art Morrison subframe with c5 suspension.

    Or

    Stock front subframe with chassis works coilover bracket and full ridetech, including a-arms, spindles, steering box, muscle bar, tru turn. Pretty much every upgrade.



    Which one for resale and drivability?

    Your just putting band aids on a stock one.

    Get a modern design if you have the $$

    Iíve owned two Art Morrison equipped cars and a full ridetech car. No comparison imho. The Art Morrison ride is far superior. So much so that I sold the Ridetech equipped car.

    I bet if you price out building a stock frame vs. buying an aftermarket frame you wonít be that far off. A few extra bucks for an aftermarket frame will be money well spent, and the cars value will be higher. But building a stock frame is good for somebody who doesnít have a big lump sum of money to drop all at once.

    That's what I found and went with the DSE front clip.

    I went with a Speedtech Performance’s Pro Touring front subframe for my Nova build and rebuilt the stock subframe with Hotchkiss parts on my Camaro. I guess it depends on what your going to be dong with the car?
