another question?

i just bought a 3.4 5spd camaro i bought it from a friend for cheap cause he didn't want to fix the little things wrong with it. The car runs and drives great has t-tops and all that good stuff but the driver side suspension squeaks real bad and if you rev on it in 1st gear it makes a grinding sound but the car drives perfect i was just wandering if it needs a new clutch. The suspension is probably bad bushings but i dunno about the clutch it doesn't affect regular driving just when u rev.

I'd have to hear it, but its either the clutch or tranny. And the squeek is probally what you suspected, the bushings / shocks / struts.

Grinding sound while revving in 1st gear... Does it do it in neutral?? I had this same sound on my car (Automatic) while in park or neutral... Ended up being a loose heat shield above the CAT.
