Pro-Drag Adjustable Front Coil Over System with QA1 Struts - 1982-1992 GM F-Body: Camaro & Firebird
Application: 1982-1992 GM F-Body: Camaro & Firebird
Spohn Performance's QA1 adjustable front strut based Pro Drag adjustable front coil over kit for the 1982-1992 GM F-Body Camaro & Firebird sets a new, higher standard of performance and quality. When we designed our coil over system, we had two goals in mind.
One was to provide the performance capabilities needed for the toughest race tracks, the second was to provide the strength and durability required for the demands of a daily driven vehicle. We're proud to say that we have accomplished both.
If you are looking for the best front coil over suspension system for the third generation F-Body, you just found it!
Once thought of as a race only item, coil-over suspensions are now considered the hot set-up for any highly tuned drag car. The combination of incredible weight transfer with great ride quality is what one expects from a world class drag car.
With a Spohn Pro Drag coil-over conversion kit you will have the no-compromise performance you demand without paying a penalty in comfort.The Pro Drag coil over system uses an extremely long (14"), yet extremely light spring for the most stored spring energy possible, providing tremendous weight transfer and an incredible launch. With the design of our system, we can use this extremely long spring, yet still allow for the availability of over 1" of ride height lowering.
Warning! All coil-over kits are not created equal. Compare the features of our kit with any other manufacturer's kit and you'll quickly see the differences. Careful attention to detail by our design team is why the Spohn coil over kit avoids the design pitfalls of others. You can always depend on Spohn Performance to provide you with the best parts for your F-Body!
Other coil over kits on the market use a top spring hat mounted underneath the stock upper strut mount. This places the entire weight of the front of the car on to the stock strut mount and greatly reduces the amount of strut travel.
With street driving and vehicle loads, these systems cause the stock strut mounts to distort, bend, and fatigue; and the struts to bottom out due to decreased strut travel, ending in parts failure.
