Why not just cannibalize a Fiero for the rear? I believe they use the same spline axles as our trannies since you can use F23 trannies with Cav axles in their hubs. That would save you from having to mod J knuckles for the back.

Looking badass nonetheless.

B/c I dont like to take the easy street to get what i want done. i have the capabilities to do what no one else has done to one, i think it hasnt been done. well atleast not by the way im building it. i dont want store bought mods. I tend to fab my own components. plus there is more fun when its the hard way. Ive seen a few builds on imports that back-halved for a mid engine setups. nice builds, but just trying to one up the last guy. alot more pride when you design and build your own frame, suspension components, ect. easy street would have been completed already, that would be nice. but more respect this way, i hope. lol

Enjoy life while you can, because you only have one shot. So go BIG or go home.

Taking "easy street" is not the wrong idea, Work smart not hard that's the way I look at it.


I miss my Cavalier, even if it made 100 hp on a cold day and had more suspension then it deserved.

Its all in your perspective of whats so called "HARD". For me this isn't a hard build. I can do everything without physical assistance from my peers. Its just time and money consuming. I take extraordinary pride in my projects. School is my only set back in this project. Fire Fighter Paramedic training has been a killer of the wallet and free time. But hey, I'll be completely done in August. Plus I'm incorporating a Formula-1 style push rod suspension. No domestic vehicle has this option that can be adapted over, especially for my direct specifications. The only thing hard is design, but yet again, that's easy as well. Just pencil and paper or CAD. Easy to start over.

Enjoy life while you can, because you only have one shot. So go BIG or go home.

Ground to the top of the mirror 32.75"

Ground to the top of the factory spoiler 33.5"

Ground to the top of the rear wheel well 19.5"

Ground to the bottom of the factory door handles 23.75"


This is my ride height, might be slightly lower when all is said and done.
