The SC&C Race Suspension Package AFX is perfect for those who want the ultimate in a comprehensive performance handling package. We`ve hand-picked the best muscle car performance handling car parts in the business and combined them into one even more awesome package.
For the `64-`72 A body package, we start off by fixing the weakest link in the chain, the horrible stock front suspension geometry. Our AFX tall aluminum spindles take care of this by relocating the suspension pickup points to achieve correct negative camber gain in bump for better grip, a higher and much more stable roll center for reduced body roll and more predictable handling, and with the A body specific aluminum steering arms, virtually no bump steer. These spindles feature integral mounts for C5/C6 brakes (optional), and provide a 7/8″ drop in ride height. The revised geometry of the AFX package is a real game changer! We round this part of the package out with easily adjustable SPC Performance tubular upper A arms.
We add Chassisworks/Varishock QS1 single adjustable coilovers, with Chassisworks lower A-arms (designed for coilovers)in the front, and a Chassisworks/Varishock QS1 single adjustable coilover conversion kit in the rear, for a more aggressive stance, maximum firmness and adjustable ride height. The 750 lb/in. front and 250 lb/in. rear springs provide the extra control you want when running auto cross or at a road course track day. Of course there is some compromise in ride quality so this package is not for the faint of heart or those looking for a cushy ride. These spherical bearing mount shocks provide instant, razor sharp response but may also transfer a bit more road noise to the cockpit than poly or rubber bushed units. QS2 double adjustable coil overs are available and encouraged for improved tuning and performance. We add chassis rigidity with our SC&C HD chassis brace.
Out back we prevent excessive rear axle migration under load, and reduce unwanted binding, with Currie Currectrac aluminum severe duty arms. Billet aluminum lowers , with adjustable uppers. They are stronger and more visually striking than anything else out there.
We round out the package with sway bars. No cookie cutter bars here. We include state of the art 4130 tubular chrome moly bars from Hellwig. The rear bar is a whole new format for this car, mounting to the chassis with links to reduce unwanted binding, and provide much more usable rate than bars mounted to the lower trailing arms. It is also adjustable for street / autocross/ or drag racing. It adds a LOT of performance and versatility but hardly any weight, the bar only weighs about 6 lbs.! We match it with a Hellwig thin wall tubular front sway bar with SC&C Extreme Duty greasable end links, for excellent wheel/tire clearance, upgraded spherical bearing end links, and a weight of only 14 lbs.! The weight of both bars combined is 14 lbs. LESS than a 1 5/16” solid front bar alone!
Combine this package with a good wheel/tire combo and upgraded brakes and you have a vintage muscle car with the ultimate in modern performance car handling!
