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, a new heavy hitter in the shock market, is our main line we match to all of our suspension kits such as our Chicane Coilover conversion. Based on a double adjustable twin tube design, they are available for the average street driven and occasional autocross Pro Touring car in our standard Viking Warrior shocks, and for those that will see a little more track time and want the best valving available, the new Viking Crusaders will more than meet the need. Viking builds a top of the line shock at a fantastic price and value, and that's why we like them so much. To learn more about the specifics of Viking's different types of shocks, >> Click Here <<.

For those familiar with the Ridetech name, you know their reputation for building a high quality shock. Designed around a forged monotube shock body, their heavy duty internals and ability to run a little cooler work fantastic in all types of driving situations. These are available as an option for our Chicane kits, order below.

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