    Smile 632 BigBlock Looking for advice

    Hello, my buddy is in the process of doing up a 1981 z28. He is putting in a 632 bigblock 1000 hp, with 850 torque. He loves the handling of my 03 ZO6, and wishs to go more that route than a 1/4 mile car. Any advice that you could could tell me would be great that I could pass on. He has not bought any suspension stuff at all yet. I also believe that he is doing a minitub.

    Well, it's going to be tough to get the same "feeling" of a Z06 in a Z28. It's a totally different suspension setup. I'd recommend checking into UMI products, and Global West. The chassis is going to require a lot of stiffening and bracing to handle that much power and torque. That's going to transfer vibration and road feeling into the cabin. Good luck.

    What about Hotchkis? 1970-1981-camaro-firebird-3-link-rear-suspension-promo_pic.jpg Would this do the job?

    Hotchkis is good too. I have a few of their componants on my car as well. I'm not sure what all is in the kit you picture, but I'd have no problem using any of their stuff.
