    Hi, I'm installing the Pro-Touring front end on my '63 Wagon and I'm doing the brakes now (Wilwood PN 140-13224.) Everything has been fitting so far but there weren't castle nuts for the spindle in either the TCI parts or the Wilwood parts so I got a set from O'Reillys for a '77 Mustang. They...

    Hi, I remember a few months back there was a live demo/livestream of the installation of a TCI front clip on an early Nova, at a show in Pomona. I wasn't able to go but they said the whole thing would be recorded and uploaded. Does anyone know if that ever happened and if so, do you have the...

    Sorry if this is a stupid question; it's my first time doing a subframe. But after talking with TCI and finding out my coilovers need to mount upside down to fit on my '63 Wagon's Pro-Touring subframe, I bolted them up but there's about 1/4" of room between the coilover bushings and the the...

    I am getting ready to do some work on my 63 convertible . I have a TCI front clip already , wondering if anyone has recommendation on a rear clip ( leaning towards TCI just because I like their front clip and thought it would be a good match) . I do plan on mini tubs and figuring out a way to...

    I have an older style TCI Front Clip that I just started installing on my 63 Chevy II so I can easily run a Big Block (and improve the handling). I was previously using fenderwell headers with my stock front and small block. I liked the fenderwell headers and want to do the same with my big...

    Hey Guys, I just wanted to post some pictures of what I got to come home to yesterday! Also, a huge shout out to Tim for helping with selecting my kit and answering the 100's of questions I had.

    Here are some shots of my '67 Nova SS. It's currently getting a new powerplant (LS3 Stroker). I recently installed the TCI pro-touring front clip as well. I can't wait to get her back on the road. I run a page on Instagram called ModernDayHotRods, so don't mind the watermarks. More info on my...

    Decided to go with a front clip and have read a lot of online reviews and old post about them being squeaky. There is nothing I hate worse than a squeaky front end and have seen this complaint on multiple clips and was wondering if there is anything I can look for before I buy? I think ive got...

    Is anyone running the Holley Hi Ram on their LS swap? I have a 2" cowl hood and ordered the TCI Pro-Touring front end. I've google searched and searched on here to see if I could find anything, but came up empty handed. I'm wanting to know if it will clear before I order an LS crate engine with...

    Billet Specialties has been the industry’s most recognized name in precision-machined accessories for your vehicle, and it’s easy to see why more classic cruisers, race cars, and muscle trucks are dressed with Billet Specialties’ innovative and eye-catching designs than anyone else. With a huge...

    I just received my TCI pro-touring front end. I need to remove the ball joints in order to powder coat the control arms. They appear to be threaded into the arms. Can I unscrew them from the arms? What is the correct torque spec when replacing them? What is the proper tool to use in order to...
