Corvette Chassis

Click for larger image Now you can up-grade any First-Generation 1953-62 Corvette with our direct-replacement mandrel-bent 2x4 box-tube chassis. The standard chassis package is available with any engine and trans mounts, core support, body mounts and bumper-bracket mounts all in their stock location. The IFS, which available as a separate bolt-in unit for stock chassis, features 7/8-inch X .156-inch wall upper A-arms, 1-inch X .56-inch wall lower A-arms. We use stock GM '69-72 Chevelle spindles, with stock 11-inch rotors, calipers, and balljoints. The new "quick-turn" Flaming River rack-and-pinion steering unit features 3-turns lock-to-lock. The fully adjustable front suspension utilizes aluminum adjustable coilover shocks that connect to a multi-hole adjustable upper attachment point for about 3 inches of stance adjustment and 2-position lower A-arm coilover mount to give you the stance you want!

After all the brackets are welded to the housing, it is jig-straightened. The rear adjustable 4-link control arms and Panhard bar, mounted in urethane bushins, feature 1-inch X .156-inch wall seamless steel tube. The standard package includes aluminum adjustable coilover shocks that have a 3-position lower housing mount for your favorite ride height.

 

 

Optional features include 12-inch GM front brakes, Wilwood (12.19 or 13-inch) or (13 and 14-inch) front-or-rear super stoppers, 1-inch diameter front and rear away bars, Air Ride Technologies ShockWave air springs (shown) and tubbed rear frame. Optional rearend housings include Alston's Fab9, Winters V8 Quickchange, Championship style Quickchange or our standard new '58 Ford style housing. If you're using a stock column with our IFS, you'll need our optional lower column modification kit or the best policy is to use a new ididit column. We also offer an optional dual chamber master cylinder kit with proportioning valve and new stainless braided front brake lines.
