one word of advice...if your mini tubbing a nova or camaro for drag racing use...do not buy detroit speed and eng. mini tub kit....its not made for drag racing. i ended up sending everything back and just keeped the tubs and offset shackles. and of course a 20% restocking fee goes along with that.
oh well live and learn.
