67 spindle king pin inclination

HI all,
I am doing some suspension upgrades on my 67 impala 2dr ht and was hoping someone could tell me the kpi and height of the stock spindle. It would be a huge help before ordering a bunch of expensive parts that I might not even need

Sorry I missed your first post.

In 1967 a Chevy doesn't have king pins (that is something found only on a beam axle that Chevy hadn't used since 1937). Your car has Ball joints on an A-arm up top and a modified trailing strut on the bottom that also has a ball joint. The Steering knuckle is the cast iron part that connects the two ball joints together and has the spindle mounted in about the middle of the knuckle.

As to every dimension (weight and measure you can think about asking about (including the torque values for a lot of parts); you need this book.

1967 Chevy Chassis Service Manual (Corvette, Camaro, Chevelle) in Paper Format | Detroit Iron

You can find it as a paper manual (how I like them), or as a CD containing photo copies of all of the pages of the paper manual; (easier to store if you have a lot of service manuals like I do). You can find them as old originals sold by the wife of a former Chevy mechanic with grease and other stains on it, or as a brand new reprint (of the same scanned pages only bound). You can also find it for a wide range of prices.

But any way you look at it you need this book.
