About this Product:
Chassis Max Handle Bars from Hotchkis are a critical component for any high-performance 1967-1969 Camaro or 68-74 Nova. First generation F-bodies use a subframe that can flex during hard cornering, altering suspension geometry and even alignment. Hotchkis has solved this problem by applying nature's strongest shape: the triangle. Handle Bars tie the control arms to each other and the firewall with high-strength tubing, CNC bent brackets and laser cut gussets for maximum strength and rigidity. The result is incredible handling and driver control that makes the most of your high performance suspension.
Application Note: This current design may not fit some models equipped with LS motor conversions. They are currently developing a new cross bar for the LS conversion.
May not fit on cars using stock upper control arms. Tubular upper control arms are suggested.
Starting April 2010. Hotchkis have incorporated a adjustable top bar to increase adjustability and improve vehicle fitment due to manufacturing tolerance and condition of cars. The adjustable brace can also be installed on 68-74 Novas.
