Project Fixer Upper gets a rear end update
One of the first things I wanted to do on the ElCo was to upgrade the suspension.

I already had a Hotchkis kit sitting on the shelves that I was going to use in a previous project but never got around to it. In this issue we’ll be installing the rear suspension pieces. In my research I heard several El Camino owners say the addition of an airbag kit for the rear coil springs really helped cut down on wheel hop! So I ordered an airbag kit from Summit Racing. The car has some fairly new KYB gas shocks on it already, so I’ll keep them for now, but eventually they will see an upgrade.
