The second-gen Camaro and Firebird are great cars. If you don’t believe me, just see how many are at the next car show. But, when it comes to upsizing the wheel and tire package, trying to add bigger tires does have limitations. But thanks to the folks at Performance Online (POL) one of those limitations can be remedied.
Go to any forum dedicated to the F-body, and you’re sure to find more than one post asking about fitting bigger tires under Chevrolet’s pony car. You’ll likely see many responses that say cutting and welding are required, but what if those modifications are not needed to utilize larger rear tires?
To help enthusiasts place larger tires under their second-gen pony car, Performance Online is offering its rear shock relocation kit for the 1970-81 Chevy Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. This kit allows you to move your rear shocks inboard of the leaf springs for additional tire clearance and making the shock configuration into a non-staggered setup. All without any cutting! Utilizing a non-staggered rear shock setup allows the car owner to run a traditional rear disc brake setup. It also allows the shock absorber to dampen suspension movement and axle twist more consistently. If you have a car that is lowered, this kit will work with stock or lowered applications.
