    I don't see any sponsors on here that are strictly suspension related. I went with PST http://www.p-s-t.com/ for a whole front suspension kit for my 71 SS. Choice of rubber or poly and it included everything that moved. I did go with the poly setup. In the rear I went with new leaf springs from Year One and put poly bushings in them. Just like driving a new car after the install. If yours is a Z the rear springs should be the 4-leaf with the leaves biased to the front. Same as the F-41 option I have on mine. The springs were made by Eaton in Detroit and are cheaper bought from them. I tried buying from them but ran into prob with the guy on the phone not knowing what F41 was so I ordered through Year One.

    thanks for the info.. i was thinking more of a custom suspension though. 4 link for the rear and a pro street front end. i can find all that stuff for my buddies 68 but not mine. i want this to be a just a weekend car because i drive my 99 z during the week. it's going to end up with a carb'd ls1 in there and i want it to handle great

    Hotchkis makes a pro-touring style complete suspension. If you want custom you can go with air ride technologies and air bag it. The rear is a 4 link, the front you can use your existing a arms. I'm going to put the air bags on my 74 camaro because it hasn't been over done yet. For drag racing suspension you will want to look at Competition Engineering.
