UMI Launches The Power Tour Package Suspension System!

We are proud to introduce our Power Tour Package. This kit includes everything you need to go from tired and frustrated after five miles to happy and refreshed after a full day on tour. We start with caster corrected tubular a-arms and poly bushing trailing arms. This solid foundation allows the suspension to move the way it should and never the way it shouldn't. The suspension is controlled with touring rate springs and improved rebound control, gas charged monotube shocks. Sway and body roll is eliminated with increased rate sway bars that hold the car flat while cornering without being too harsh. Rear frame braces and all necessary hardware round out this Made In Philipsburg, PA - USA kit.

Look for UMI's 1965 Cutlass on the 2019 Hot Rod Power Tour. We will be long hauling from the factory in Philipsburg, PA to the start, completing the entire tour, then driving home. We'll enjoy modern feel and handling while cruising in style. Oh, and if we happen to find a back road along the way, heads will turn when that ol' Cutlass is keeping up...
1964-1967 A-Body
1968-1972 A-Body
1978-1988 G-Body

Poly bushing trailing arms, common guys??? Why to keep pushing these wonky things when you sell the smooth action sphericals?

Re: UMI Launches The Power Tour Package Suspension System!

Hey guys. Thanks for checking our thread.

The Power Tour Package is based on customer feedback over the years. We find the new formulation poly bushings to be a great choice for long haul as well as daily applications.

As with any UMI products, we are happy to customize a kit to your needs. Roto-Joint upgrades are no problem at all.

I am glad somebody is addressing the suspension issue with these cars. People spend so much on drivelines when the stock suspension can barely handle the power the stock drivelines in these cars put out. Plus it is so much more enjoyable to drive with the modern suspension..

UMI sells such nice adjustable rear control arms with the big Roto Joint and the price isn't that much more for what you get. I am talking big heavy duty Roto joint not the small spherical.. 1964-1972 A-Body Double Adjustable Lower Control Arms- w/ Roto-Joints [4043] - $379.99 : UMI Performance, Inc.

Spherical joints get real noisy real quick on the street.


The Roto-Joints are far better and are greasable and adjustable.
