What's in the Box

Don't you wish you had adjustable coil-overs on the front of your classic car to vary the ride height and road feel? This QA1 Pro Coil Adjustable Front Coil-Over Conversion Kit will do just that for you. You get two adjustable coilover shock assemblies that have a single knob with 18 valving options and two coil springs. 

Choose 350 lb., 450lb. or 550 lb. rate springs.

  • Easy bolt-in installation
  • Remove the existing shocks and springs and the QA1 Pro Coil System bolts right back in
  • Springs designed so that the lower end sits on the coil-over shock and the upper end sets in the original spring bucket in the frame
  • Allows for a longer, lighter spring for more stored energy, offering increased weight transfer
  • Greater durability by locating the spring pressure in the frame and not on a single stud
  • Threaded aluminum body allows easy ride height adjustment
  • QA1 Pro Coil shocks are revalveable and rebuildable by QA1 Authorized Service Centers

AFCO has been in the shock business for over 20 years and has incorporated their technological knowledge into this 10-Series street/strip/track shock.  This 80/20 front shock allows the front to lift and hold under acceleration, which transfers weight to the rear tires and improves traction.

Whatever your street stock choice, AFCO has the stock mount shock for you.  These 10-Series gas pressure shocks are built with the valving you need for racing, but are assembled in a "stock" configuration body to meet most track rules.  The split-valve shocks offer additional tuning capabilities over the standard valving. 

Available Split Valves - Part # 1061022 is a "split valve - easy up" shock used on the front to promote weight transfer under acceleration.  This will enhance forward traction.

Book/Manual - How to Restore Your Camaro, 1967-69
SKU-28178178
                        About 700,000 Camaros were built from 1967 to  1969. The first-generation Camaro has won a die-hard following and has  become an iconic performance car. Camaros in excellent condition command  very high prices, so many owners are compelled to perform a  professional-grade original restoration. Since these cars are about 40  years old, many cars need second or third restorations, and as time goes  by, these cars will continue to appreciate and require restoration.  That's where How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 comes in. While some  owners can afford to pay shops to perform a 100-point restoration for  show car competition, many owners want to perform a faithful, detailed  restoration themselves, so the car maintains its collector value and use  it as a fun weekend driver. This book will serve those owners.

A lead title in our Restoration Series, How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 will provide in-depth, hands-on information and photography for restoring these popular and historically significant cars. It covers all aspects of restoration, including engines and drivelines, bodywork, interior and trim, suspension, brakes, chassis, and steering for the first-generation Camaros. Organization and planning will be covered, so restorers can stay on task. Disassembly, inspection, and sourcing the best parts will also be covered. This volume will deliver a concise and revealing overview of each subject area and shows the most critical aspects of the restoration process with sequential step-by-step photos and detailed captions. The most efficient techniques and best products for returning each component to like-new condition will be covered. With this information, owners will be able to determine what's involved in each step of the restoration and decide whether to perform the work themselves or outsource it to a professional shop. Color step-by-step how-to information on Camaro restoration has never been offered in a package like this before. Finally, Camaro owners have the book they need.
