Project Chevelle Episode 5: Spindles and Control Arms

7/12/2018

Agility and flat cornering are not typically associated with 70's cars, and Project Chevelle was no exception. Add to that the nose-up stance of the car when we got it and it was clearly time for us to do some work on the suspension.

Today we're installing our G-Comp 2" dropped spindles along with our tubular upper and lower control arms. These parts together will improve the geometry of the front suspension as well as bring the ride height down where it belongs.

For details on this install, check out the Spindles and Control Arms tech article.
