AFX Performance Spindles 1967-1969 F Body
Now Standard with Corvette ZR1 Hub Assemblies!
Looking for the ultimate set of performance spindles? GM muscle cars are known for having poor geometry from the factory. They rode relatively smooth and did well in straight line drag race situtaions, but high speed cornering was less of a consideration in their designs. With today's technology, correcting these issues with control arms helps but is only part of the equation. Speedtech and ATS has taken an entirely new approach to improving the less than optimal factory suspensions of the A, F, X, G and B body platforms by scratch designing the focal point of the steering and suspension geometry, the front spindle.
Both ATS Tall and Standard Height spindles drop ride height 1" for a more aggressive stance and use highly modernized ZR1 Corvette sealed heavy duty hub assemblies. Advantages of the ZR1 hub include a sealed maintenance free larger than standard C5/C6 Corvette bearing pack which offers a stronger higher load capacity. The ATS spindle and ZR1hub combination do not alter track width or bolt pattern allowing standard wheel fitment. Brake packages are available for the ZR1 Corvette from multiple manufacturers, including Baer, Wilwood, and others, and bolt directly to the ATS spindle. Specific steering arms custom designed for each individual vehicle bring bump steer numbers down to nearly zero.
Speedtech/ ATS Spindles are power forged and then heat treated from ultra strong, lightweight 7075 T73 aircraft spec aluminum and then precision machined on a CNC 5 axis mill. The tall profile radically improves the vehicle's handling characteristics by transforming camber gain during suspension travel.
AFX Spindle Features include:
- Forged from ultra lightweight, exceptionally strong 7075 T73 aluminum.
- Revised bolt-on steering arm location improves bump steer.
- Improves negative camber gain under suspension load.
- One inch ride height drop for lowered look.
- Uses sealed ZR1 Corvette hub assembly.
- Does not push track width outward allowing standard wheel usage
Application: '94-96 Impala SS
*Note- The ATS spindle for the B Body Impala/ Caprice platform is designed to work exclusively with Speedtech control arms and steering components and will not work properly with non Speedtech parts. To maintain proper geometry the B Body ATS spindles are only available in the Impala Street Fighter package. Click here for more details.
