CPP is the last place I would be asking this advise from. Hieghts would be a much better choice with much better support

Well, you probably won't find much info here other than the usual CPP bashing!

With that being said, It's too bad they don't list the complete spindle/C5 big brake kit for the Tri-fives like they do for some other models. That 30019 spindle utilizes the C5 Corvette bearing, rotors and calipers so any factory, Wilwood or Baer brakes for a C5 Corvette should work. You'll have to call to verify, but I would imagine those spindles keep the original drum brake offset.

I bought the complete tall C5 spindle/brake/bearing/hose package for my 67 Camaro. Everything bolted up perfectly and it was a huge improvement in braking and handling over the original 11" four piston disc brakes. That setup kept original wheel offset.

The 500 steering box, some tubular arms (not necessarily CPP), the C5 spindle/brake kit, some coilovers and a front sway bar should make a Tri Five stop, steer and corner pretty good.

I don't have my 55 back together yet, but I just used some QA1 coilovers and I think 400# springs. I would have to check. I went with whatever was recommended for the 55 and the Camaro, but in hindsight, I think another 50 to 100 pounds more spring rate might be better.

OK I'm going to bash.

CPP sells some stuff that doesn't live up to expectations. The pitman arm debacle was even worse as this is a safety item. Same with some of their steering columns. Their customer service sucks.

Even if/when they have a viable product, the online information on it is lacking. I don't know if these spindles are worth having but the lack of information tells me to look elsewhere because of their other products.

Yes, the pitman arm debacle was not a shining moment for CPP, but it's not like every pitman arm and every part they sold was bad. When customers want parts as cheap as possible, and you sublet the manufacturing overseas, things are bound to go sideways at times.

I think it's been pointed out many times that there is nothing wrong with CPP's tilt steering column. It's the same design GM has used for years.

THAT is NOT what the NZ and Aussie safety agency says!! I don't know where you got your information??? What they said is that CPP produced and other chinese produced tilt columns do not use a 'fail safe' design in their tilt columns as do GM and all American mfgs...

Unlike some of the other Chinese tilt columns, the CPP column has the same "fail safe" double yoke design as a GM column. That's a fact. There was a picture of the CPP shaft in that report from 2013.

I'm not going to argue about it, because I don't care. I've got an Ididit column in my 55.

the cpp column is a POS let me repeat that POS. it is sloppy has scraping parts inside and in general is made poorly. I know this from experience with using them when customers brought them to me for install then Complained LOUDLY about what a cheap POS they are.
