I intend to use my 94 camaro as a street car. It's not going to see the track often.. It is a conversion from a v6 to an LT1, so which suspension components other than a torque are relocation kit, will I need? should i get a street specific kit from one of the suspension kit suppliers?

That would depend on your transmission...

Until it breaks, I'm going with a built 4l60e with a 2800-3200stall converter from Atlantic Coastal Converters...I'm not sure about the gearing situation in the transmission

Well you don't have to relocate the torque arm then, but some have been known to crack the casing. It was not a problem on my Formula, but it has happened enough times to others to know it isn't a fluke.

Thanks Scott. Truth be told, I had no idea there would be so many variables when I started this project. It's like trying to build a missile and diffuse a bomb at the same time.
