    We used some "custom" set and they were not correct. Did not match up and we had to do a lot of modification. It also took 7 months to get. The first set they sent was for a 69 and mine was a 68 so I had to wait another 2 months. Be VERY careful what you are getting, that you can get a LOT of positive feedback on their systems.

    I am trying to remember what brand it was. I will have to look for the paperwork. Whatever it was it sucked.

    put GW UCAs on a 67 with non-stock springs - but I don't see how the spring type should matter .... do recall a note with GW install instructions stating that the perches need to be reversed from stock orientation to accommodate the negative camber .... does this help?? ....
