Coilovers for a Model A

Add Article To List

In this Tech Tip, John offers up a couple solutions to a customer on the hunt for a coil over kit for his 2-door Model A.

“I'm looking for rear coilover shocks and upper and lower mounts for my 28 model a two door sedan, can you send me parts numbers for what you would recommend for this, I'm going with a 4 bar and a watts link set up.”

Hi, thanks for the question. You asked about coil overs for your Model A and if your 4 bar kit is similar to ours (P/N 91649055), it should have the lower mount bracket for the coil over similar to P/N 91636100. If it doesn’t, you’ll need two of them. Use with long shock mount number P/N 91636011 at the bottom and you can also use these at the top or fabricate brackets off the cross member. A commonly used coil over kit is number 2552254E which has a 225 rate spring but this is generic and any weight can be used depending on the style and weight of your A. Feel free to visit us on the web at or call 1-800-979-0122 with questions or to place an order.
