Factory Coil Spring

Leaf Spring Three Link Rear Suspension

The most popular factory rear suspension design for solid rear axle cars is the coil spring system. Under the coil spring umbrella are a number of subtle design variations that make coil spring suspensions more attractive to suspension tuners, compared with leaf springs. Because the coil spring's only job is to support the weight of the vehicle, designers still needed a way to locate the rear axle under the car. This necessitated control arms also called trailing arms . The simplest OE coil...

Build Your

Ford only built 50 of these cars, but if you wanted to replicate the effort, it would be expensive but possible. Ford actually offers the body in white over the counter, but it would be a good idea to buy a wrecked V-6 Mustang for all the little parts that would be otherwise too expensive to purchase individually. The accompanying part numbers are incomplete because it is probably too early to get all the gritty price details. The idea would be to build a replica or tribute car that would be as...

Edelbrock Vs Ta Performance Heads

While TA offers a number of cylinder heads for serious Buicks, this test involves the company's most basic aluminum heads, the Stage 1SE. The big claim to fame on these is that they look totally stock with all the factory contours, unlike the Edelbrocks with their flat-machined ends.

TA claims that no additional parts are required when swapping these heads...

Twists And Turns

Calvert Rear Suspension Kit

It's important to understand how the rear axle moves in relation to the car before we can get into how each different rear suspension operates. Let's look at what happens when you drop the hammer on your 500hp street car at the dragstrip. Not every twist is as it appears. As torque is applied from the driveshaft to the rear axle, multiple forces begin to leverage the car. Engine torque multiplied by the transmission's First gear ratio and the rear axle ratio is equal to several thousand Ib-ft...
