There comes a time when racers must make a decision about the course they want a project car to follow in regards to the front suspension. A good option is a strut front suspension because it offers a racer many benefits that will help lower ETs and provide adjustability. Chris Alston’s Chassisworks has strut front suspensions that can either be bolted in or custom-fit for a specific application.
Strut-style front suspensions are a favorite among drag racers due to their good geometry and the weight savings they can offer. The suspension also allows for better dampening options that are optimal for drag racing. The solution that Chris Alston’s Chassisworks offers adds the extra advantage of refined adjustability to a strut-style front suspension.
If you have a 1967-1981 Camaro or 1962-1972 Nova, Chris Alston’s Chassisworks has a bolt-in front frame clip that works with a strut-style suspension. The front frame clips are made from 4130 chrome-moly steel and come with all the essential mounting points to bolt-on your suspension parts. Chris Alston’s Chassisworks offers all of the parts to finish the front clip, including hardware, struts, strut arms, rack and pinion steering, brakes, and more. You can also purchase the entire front clip with all the parts needed to have a fully functioning front suspension.
For those who have a car that isn’t covered by a bolt-in option from Chris Alston’s Chassisworks or they want something different a custom-fit option is available. These front clip kits can be purchased in 1 5/8-inch round tube or 3×2-inch boxed steel versions. Each kit comes unassembled with provisions to mount either VariStruts or Strange Struts, mounting locations for steering, control arm mounting tabs, and hardware. You can also purchase these kits with all the necessary parts to create a full front suspension.
