For the ultimate handling GM G-Body car, nothing beats the Hotchkis Sport Suspension Stage 2 Total Vehicle System. This kit has been rigorously designed and tested on the track, yet is very comfortable for your local cruise in. Every aspect of the suspension has been re engineered for the maximum performance and is being offered in a complete tuned package. In front we start out with Tubular Upper and Lower Control Arms which increase caster and improve the camber curve increasing front end grip and traction. Heavy duty tie rod sleeves hold the alignment, while 1” lowered sport springs and Hotchkis Tuned/FOXshocks improve vehicle control and stance. A massive 1 3/8" front sway bar and 1 ¼” adjustable rear sway bar reduce body roll and improve handling. To improve traction and reduce wheel hop, the rear receives a upgrade to the existing 4 link suspension. Massive 1.5” adjustable upper trailing arms allow for pinion angle changes to improve launches, while the super strong 1.5” rectangular tube lower trailing arms maximize traction by reducing flex allowing power to be transferred to the tires. Grade 8 hardware and greasable bushings are included along with special trailing arm mount braces, designed to stiffen the chassis and reduce flex. This system is a proven autocross winner and designed for maximum performance improvement in an installer friendly, bolt on kit. PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA
Note: This kit lowers the vehicle an avg of 1" from original factory ride height.
