This 68, 69, 70, 71 or 72 suspension kit is a direct bolt-on, no modifications required. This system allows you to make you musclecar handle like the newer car you drive daily at a reasonable price. Grab your today and you will be on an autocross before you know it. This kit will give you the best of both worlds, cruisin and racing. You now can drive your ride to the track in comfort with this new kit featuring dual rate coil springs.

Reasons you need this kit:

1.The dual-rate spring coil springs will allow the vehicle to transition small road irregularities via a soft spring rate. When the vehicle compresses the spring far enough (through large bumps or cornering), it transitions to the firmer spring rate to control the bump or body roll. We have worked closely with Hyperco to develop custom dual rates to ensure the best ride possible.
2. Shocks are the brains of your suspension...the single most important influence on ride quality and handling performance. RideTech and Fox have spent years refining the characteristics of these monotube shocks to optimize the performance of YOUR car! 24 Valve Single Adjustable Front and Rear Shocks with Top adjustment knob for easy tuning!
3.Most OEM front swaybars were calibrated with tires and cornering loads that were radically less capable than today. We increase the diameter of the swaybar to minimize the body roll through the corners to optimize the handling performance. Includes Delrin bushing to eliminate stiction and allow the swaybar to move freely.
4. OEM rubber control arm bushings allow too much deflection on the control arms. Poly bushings resist smooth rotation and impose stiction. Delrin bushings eliminate the deflection AND the stiction, leading to a huge improvement in both ride quality and handling.
5.Most OEM front suspension geometry, in addition to being designed over 50 years ago, induced "positive camber" when cornering (loaded tire leans away from the turn). This is a huge compromise in cornering performance and feel. By installing a taller set of balljoints, we reposition the control arms to correct this condition and create a much more stable and enjoyable driving and cornering experience.
6. 50lb weight savings in unsprung weight will improve handling and ride quality. These composite leafs also incorporate more torsional strength so any "spring wrap" is diminished. The billet leaf spring eyelets help achieve the desired stance.
