The suspension systems on classic America muscle cars are, well, classic we guess you could say. What we mean is that 40 and 50 years ago, suspension technology was still rather primitive, with leaf springs and and drum brakes handling most of the work. These days though, if you have the money and the talent, you can update your American muscle car with a premium suspension developed this millenium
The ’70 Chevelle was most definitely a muscle car, having grown huge and requiring a big-block engine for any real performance. Upgrading the original suspension to a Heidts suspension makes a world of difference when it comes to handling, ride quality, and overall performance.
With this shiny new Heidts suspension, backed by big Wilwood brakes, this ‘70 Chevelle should have no problem conquering even the tightest autocross courses. With coil-overs, new control arms, and dropped spindles, the suspension also gives the Chevelle a sleeker stance. All in all, we think every muscle car should focus a bit more on suspension improvements these days. If you find yourself looking for a serious suspension upgrade, talk to Heidts; they can help.
