    I think there are limitations with the current suspensions available. The more research I do it seems even the Naerc wide track systems are off. Over the past week I have been looking into custom chassis shop with custom hot rod suspensions. It seems like it may be the same or actually cheaper then a wide track suspension setup and it will be 100% spot on. I'm still not 100% sure what route I go but I will be sure to keep everyone advised and of what I do and how I did it.

    JD: The weak spot on the front end will be the Fiero "A" arms and spindles. They tend to twist with big brakes. Held can help you with this.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Here is an inboard picture of mine. The Z06 is a direct bolt-on in place of the C-5 two piston floating calipers. The wheel needs to be big enough and spaced enough for the outer edge of the caliper. I made 3/8" spacers with hub pilots.


    Cheers;
