Fits On:

67-69 Chevrolet Camaro, 68-74 Chevrolet Nova


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.

Q: What are subframe braces? Why buy them?
A: A subframe brace is a structural device that links the lower portion of your vehicle’s suspension to provide increased rigidity and reduced deflection to improve handling, vehicle control, and safety. Most modern rides rely on subframes to attach the suspension components to the chassis. These subframes can twist and deflect under harsh driving conditions causing sloppy and unpredictable handling characteristics. On the track this can mean valuable seconds, but on the street it can be a safety hazard as well. By firmly connecting and reinforcing your suspension components with a subframe brace you will have more predictable handling which will improve your confidence and help keep your vehicle both safe and fast as you drive down the road. In addition the added strength of a subframe brace can improve the lifespan of suspension components and the overall reliability of your ride.
