Wow nice Hawk InfiniteReality!!! And that is a very clean looking Camaro OVRKILL!!! Damn it these posts keep making me want to finally do something with my Hawk's stance and suspension/wheels and tires set up! Going to get the Superhawk hood on finally in the next couple months so after that maybe...and I do have the '68 to tend to so I can get drivability good again with the radiator set up and adjust the brakes...too many projects and not enough money like all of us here!!! Nice cars though guys!!! 😳👏🏻👍🏻

Yes, 20mm on all four corners.

No issues with rub

Thanks! I kinda miss that car, but after selling it and years later I'm back in a WS6 which is almost as good once I got it setup like I wanted. You DEFINITELY need to do your car. First thing I'd do (and already did to WS6) is send the rear wheels off to get widened. WS6 wheels look okay, but the hawk wheels are just pure sexy when widened. Throw some 1" adapters on there and you're golden! Plus lower it too.

I assume you changed the studs out to fit them? I did 1/4" on the front of mine is love how they don't look sunken in anymore. Curious, but why not push the rears out a little more? 1", least on my car, seemed to be flush with the fender once axle was centered.

Yes, 2.5" 12x1.5 .509 knurl ARP wheels studs and 1.38" 12x1.5 Rocket Racing lug nut.

Camaros are narrower than Firebirds. You Firebird folk have more room to play with. That and the fact the axle moves in an arc with the panhard bar setup, you need a little tolerance (I will not roll my quarters).

I never knew the body was more narrow on Camaros, never really paid much mind or owned I guess. That's just the fronts tho, right? The rears look identical.

I hate rolling the quarters too. I was able to run 1" on the WS6, but actually ran 1.25" on the hawk both without rolling fenders. I had to beat the inner fender about equally on both cars tho. Not really sure if ther was an offset difference between the stock wheels but I assume not.

Both fender and quarter panels

Inner fender wells are the same on the rear, quarter panels are wider on firebird compared to camaro.

Simple depot headlights and signals off eBay . There might be an old build thread in here somewhere. Was thinking about dusting it off

I stumbled on your gmhp article thread, and noticed the fogs, but never realized the slp grille was filled out as well. You definitely pulled off the subtle approach on the front of the car. Under the hood not so much. Im still pissed I didnt make to LSfest to see this thing in person.
