We installed Baer six piston calipers on all four corners for far better braking performance.





The rears incorporate an integral parking brake drum.





17 inch BOZE forged wheels were test fitted, and then tires mounted when the fit was confirmed.

The torque arm attaches to the rear axle and to the transmission crossmember to keep the rear axle from pitching under acceleration.







Once the suspension system was installed, the crew set out to snake a dual exhaust system through it.



Custom mandrel bent sections were routed around the suspension system and terminated with discrete turndowns at the back of the car. Then the system was removed for final welding.











The Watts like mounts were painted and coated to match the bottom of the car.

The end result is a lower stance, far superior traction, and a much cleaner updated look with the new wheels and tires. The brakes rock, and the car handles like it is on rails.
