Replace the Camaro spring perched with these 1955-1956-1957-CHEVY-REAR-AXLE-HOUSING-LEAF-SPRING-PERCHES. Of course the axle needs to be centered and the pinion angle set before the new perches are welded to the axle tubes.

Move purchases and go, just be sure and get narrow replacements from H&H or above, others sell crap that is too wide.

Is it a 8.2-10 bolt or a 12 bolt?

The 56 Wagon I just dragged home has a 67 Camaro 12 bolt in it and looks like just the relocation of spring perch's was necessary .
