Default *** 55 Ls swap hard top

Posting up my old mans 55 we just finished up swapping. We'll have plenty of questions as we try to get the car to hold the power. It will prob never see the strip but would still like to keep from tearing the car apart on the street to. No pics of before we started or during the swap but I've got some from the finished product. Car started as a pretty nice 327 4spdcar and we swapped in the Ls1/4l60e. The engine has Cartek ported 243's, 240/244 cam, 11.6 to 1 compression and a edelbrock pro flo xt intake. That's backed up by a Performabuilt lvl 2 4l60 with Ptc 4000 stall. The rear end is a 10 bolt that was in it with what I believe is 373 gears after checking the first couple logs. Some of the major swap arts I'll list.

-Bpautomotive swap harness
-GM muscle car pan
-Tanks inc tank
-Ict billet swap mounts
-eBay side engine stands, moved slightly up and back on frame from where directions said to bolt them
-Speed Engineering c10 Ls swap headers (25-1025)
-Home made transmission cross member
- Original drive shaft shortened

The steering is limited to about 75% on left turn due to the pitman arm hitting the header. After researching on here I can't remember the number but it seems to be the speedway arm that keeps popping up on google when I look for it. We'll prob give that a shot unless someone recommends something better. The next thing would be traction bars or possibly Cal tracs. The tires don't stand a chance, this drive line ran a 11.6@119 with an awesome 2.0-2.1 60' in a 3800+ trans am. I have some slapper bars here on the shelf but the cal tracs have me intrigued. There design in my mind is kinda like a mini ladder bar. You guys running these does it help keep the chassis straight and from rolling/twisting? Wheel hop isn't a problem yet as wheel speed is off the charts as soon as it starts to spin but the next set of tires will be stickier. More to come thanks for looking.
