Chicane Coil Over Conversion

Chicane Coilover Conversion Kit 1970-1981 F Body


The ability to properly setup the chassis and tune to individual track conditions is one of the basic fundamentals for achieving low lap times. Adjusting spring rate, ride height, and shock dampening  is a vital part of that tuning process. True coilover shocks allow for all these to be done in one easily adjustable package, while avoiding issues where other coil and shock combinations fall short. Speedtech created the Chicane Coilover Kit for 1970-1981Camaros and Firebirds so that coilover shocks can be installed and put to use in your factory frame! 

Designed to be welded in place of the factory upper shock mount this 70-81 F body kit converts the factory shock mount to a double sheer coilover mount for use with coilovers with a t-bar lower mount. Unlike other kits on the market, being able to make tuning adjustments without removing any components from the vehicle was a primary design goal for the Chicane coilover kit.  It allows easy on-car adjustment of ride height, rebound, and compression. Since the factory upper control arm mounting bracket remains unaltered, the kit can be used with factory stock frames. Engine removal is not a requirement for installation, and welding of the Chicane coilover kit is basic and straight forward, and can be completed by a certified welder within an hour. We have two kits available, the base kit is perfect if you already have t-bar lower coil over mount shocks, and the complete kit includes Viking double adjustable coilover shocks.

Viking Double Adjustable coilover shocks allow for 19 setting positions for both compression and rebound settings, that's a total of 361 different valving combinations! These shocks also allow up to 2 1/2" ride height adjustment. Precision machined PTFE/ bronze wrapped pistons on 5/8" hard chrome plated rods are encased in clear anodized, light weight aluminum housings. Left hand threads avoid shock separation when adjusting your ride height. Each shock is individually tested, serialized and carries a TWO year warranty on materials and workmanship- twice that of most shock manufacturers.


Shock Upgrade Options Include-
Ridetech Single Adjustable coilover system
Ridetech Triple Adjustable coilover system

Ridetech's mono-tube nitrogen charged shock provides a great ride quality with fade free performance.  A larger 1.834” piston rides on a 5/8” chrome shaft through an oversized rod guide providing improved piston rod stability. A specially contoured composite gas separator cup optimizes dead length and ensures proper nitrogen/oil separation. The clear anodized impact forged aluminum body provides superior strength, while the unique pinch clamp height adjuster uses finer thread for easy adjustment.

The single adjustable shock (A) allows for easy simultaneous adjustment of compression and rebound.

The triple adjustable shock (B) has a single rebound adjustment and a DUAL high and low speed compression adjustment. A remote reservoir allows easy installation in a variety of applications.
