This is the car at the start of the chassis project
This is what I did to upgrade and replace the chassis on this car for pro-touring use, not drag racing. Note that simultaneously, I am converting from the original 350 Small Block with TH350 trans and stock open 10 bolt rear to a new 5.3 LS with a turbo, TH400 trans and 308 12 bolt posi drive train with 4-wheel disc brakes. This is the start ride height. I will end up with a lower stance when it is completed, as well. The current frame is completely stock. I have a nice aluminum drum brake set up on the rear and factory front discs. I had already boxed the front and real lower control arms and added an aluminum drive shaft. This chassis ran really nice but I wanted the boxed frame with the chopped roof and the amount of power this thing will have.
These are some of the torque values I used during this build:
