Hey TC! i was just wondering if anyone has any more information on this chevelle above. all i could find was this (http://www.hotrod.com/featuredvehicles/hrdp_0501_1967_chevy_chevelle_malibu/viewall.html) article from back in the day. according to the article, the suspension is comprised of Bilstein coilovers. All i could find are these (http://www.bilsteinus.com/products/street-rod-muscle-car/ca4-coilover-aluminum-body/) Unfortunately, i dont think this would fit my 1967 chevelle.

im definitely looking to emulate this road race style with mine (current picture below)

i have so many questions and concerns as to how i would go about doing this. primarily, this coilover option. im really looking for the adjustablilty, but if that cannot be achieved i will look into the bilstein shocks with a high performance spring, like afco. i just dont know what kind of spring rates i should be looking for. i am looking to take this into canyons so id really like this to be a solid corner carver. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to Team Chevelle

I bought all my 67s new suspension needs from Ramey at UMI Perf
http://www.umiperformance.com/catalog/

I looked at various other companies
eg. BMR Fab. / Hotchkis / Edelbrock / Hellwigs / SC & C / HRPartsNStuff / Speed Tech .....
I would have purchased the UMI Perf 64-67 GM A Body Handling Package- Stage 2 # ABF403-64
except that the kit came with 1" lowering springs
which I did not want or need as I run OEM stock springs for the stock riding height.
I purchased the following from UMI Perf and found them to be
of the best looking & quality that I have ever seen/used;
1. UMI Perf 64-67 GM A Body Rear Lower Boxed / Adj Upper Control Arms # 402126
http://umiperformance.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=330
2. UMI Perf 64-72 GM A Body Solid Front and Rear Sway Bar Kit # 403534
http://umiperformance.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=264
3. UMI Perf 64-72 GM A-Body Tubular Upper & Lower Front A-Arm Kit # 403133
http://umiperformance.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=529
4. UMI Perf 64-72 GM A-Body Viking Front Coil Over, Dbl Adj Shocks # A205-550T
http://umiperformance.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=710
5. UMI Perf 64-72 GM A-Body Viking Rear Dbl Adj Shocks # B220

6. UMI Perf 64-72 GM A-Body Tie Rod Adjusters # 2103

Thanks for all of the information! I really appreciate it. I am looking to maintain the ride height in at now if at all possible,though I'm probably going to have to raise it up about an inch or so. I'll definitely take a better look at UMIAK products. For whatever reason I never really gathered as much info about them as I have for other companies

LOVE the CCW's on your car now.

That's my next wheel... seems we're both wanting to go opposite directions, as this is my current setup using 17x9 Cragar D-window wheels.

Thanks man! They're definitely a great company to work with and make awesome wheels. Highly recommend .
I do love the way they look but I want to try s vintage American racing vibe with the handling to back it up
