Stage 3 front suspension kits for ’64-72 A-bodies from Performance Online include upper and lower tubular control arms, performance springs (5160 steel), and shocks—all in one kit. Control arms are constructed from 1020 DOM tubing to resist deflection, and extra caster is added for increased performance. Ball joints come installed as do lower control arm bushings and upper cross-shafts. Options include stock or 11/2-inch drop springs for small- or big-block applications.

Rear components feature a three-way adjustable sway bar, billet aluminum lower trailing arms, steel adjustable upper arms, and adjustable trailing arm mount braces. Rounding out the package are Polygraphite body mount bushings, Bilstein shocks, high-performance lowering springs, and a complete high-strength stainless hardware kit.
Ridetech offers complete bolt-in suspension kits for street- or track-driven ’64-72 A-bodies. Front and rear components include StrongArm upper and lower tubular control arms, Musclebar sway bars, and geometry-corrected tall drop spindles for increased camber curve and a lower stance. The rear arms also feature new articulating and adjustable ends. Drop-in coilover shocks are standard for the front, while the rear gets a choice of nonadjustable, rebound-adjustable, triple-adjustable, or electronic-adjustable units.
The ’67-69 Camaro Fast Track chassis system from Roadster Shop features a fully boxed frame with 41/4x21/2-inch main rails to provide superior strength and a low profile while maintaining the factory floor and gas tank location. Front suspension allows for 10-inch-wide wheels and is designed around C6 spindles, hubs, and ball joints, which allow for easy caster and camber adjustments. Upper and lower control arm mounts are 4041 pre-hardened and include heavy-duty splined sway bars, along with billet aluminum steering arms for strength and weight reduction. Additionally, each chassis utilizes stock body and bumper mounts and core support locations. The center crossmember and mid-brace eliminates flex, mounts most transmissions, and will accommodate up to large 3-inch exhaust. The 9-inch rearend includes 31-spline axles and heavy-duty four-bar suspension with AFCO coilovers and fitment for a 12-inch wheel.
Schwartz Performance chassis systems for first- and second-generation Camaros and ’64-72 A-bodies offer 200 percent more rigidity over the factory frames and utilize stock body mount locations, eliminating floor modifications. Chassis include mini-tubs, an adjustable transmission mount, power rack-and-pinion, and extensive crossbracing, and will accept either coilover shocks or RideTech’s ShockWaves. Front components include greasable upper and lower control arms, spindles, and steering arms with your choice of 13- or 14-inch brake kits. Full roller packages come with a triangulated four-link rear; full floating 9-inch, 31-spline axles; and a choice of Baer or Wilwood 13-inch rotors, with four- or six-piston calipers.
For a full upgrade of the stock ’70-81 Camaro front subframe for increased camber gain, quicker steering, and ability to run 17-inch wheels with up to 6 inches of backspace, Street Fighter kits incorporate a specifically designed, high-clearance tubular upper and lower control arm (installed stainless steel cross-shafts), and convert shocks to a true coilover system. Also included are AFX tall forged spindles with GM, C5/C6 hubs, a tubular sway bar, and specially designed steering arms. Steering is also upgraded with an ATS 670 12.7:1 box, a rag joint coupler, and all-new linkage. Options include C5 or C6 brakes, billet ball joint covers, and billet body mounts.
