Suspension, Wheels/Tires, and Brakes / Re: Front Shocks
« Last post by 70chall440 on Today at 12:23:00 am »
It is possible that the cupping has something to do with the shocks but they would be noticeably worn I would think. More likely it is a front end alignment and/or worn front end parts issue.

Suspension, Wheels/Tires, and Brakes / Front Shocks
« Last post by cv70chall on January 27, 2020 - 08:26:23 pm »
I finally upgraded my front rims and tires to 15", replacing the original 14 inch rims and tires. Much better stance.
My question is regarding the shocks. I have the OEM style front shocks installed and noticed that there was some slight cupping on the 4 inch front tires.
Could this have been attributed to my switching from a small block(360) to a big block(440) due to the weight increase with those smaller rims/ tires- or could it be that the big block calls for stronger front shocks? (If so, what recommendations are there?)
The car does not bounce and feels "firm" when I test the front shocks.
I just want to make sure the same issue does not affect the newly installed 15" tires.

Thanks

A set of  reproduction 'Cuda 440-6 emblems for use on either a shaker bubble or on a power bulge hood.  These are used but well taken care of and came off my '70 'Cuda shaker.  They are the brushed finished style with the Mopar pentastar logo on the back with a part number of  2998 76 31025 on the backside.  I put heat shrink over the pins on the back to keep the speed nuts from digging into the metal mounting pins.  Asking $70 for the set shipped to you.  You can buy a new set for $85 each from most vendors or $65 each off eBay.  Here you can buy 2 excellent emblems for less than half price.

Thanks. Your response is the only one that mentions this modification. I searched on 3 different E Body forums.
Personally, I'm only on one other ebody forum and don't recall mentioning it there. I found that mod from a Google search that, I believe, lead me to a Moparts link.

Further to the steering column hitting the seat ...... you can remove the steering wheel by removing the horn cap and unscrewing the three nuts that hold on the steering wheel to avoid removing the seat.
