Q: Can i use a irs diff for a ifs?

asked by on

I want to use a 05 gto rear suspension and transfer it to the front. Is it possible? If so, what are the pros and cons ?

Hello. You can do this, but it will be difficult and it will not work as well as what is on the front now. The articulation of the rear suspension will not work as good as the front and you will have limited steering. You would be better off graphing the suspension from the front of a Camaro onto the car if you are looking for something that performs better.

You may have a bad rear drive joint or problems with the wheel bearing on the rear. Have the rear joints and bearings along with the brakes inspected for worn out components or loose components.
