 Front Suspension Products

1978-88 G-Body

The Detroit Speed Suspension geometry is improved over stock by increasing camber gain and improving roll camber. DSE's suspension products have been computer modeled and the components have undergone finite element analysis.

DSE has done all the engineering and testing, and supplies all parts needed to complete the installation. All you will need to do is follow the instructions and supply the grease. Installation of front suspension products should be followed by a professional alignment.

Tubular Upper Control Arms                        #030107


Suspension geometry is improved over stock by increasing camber gain and improving roll camber. The control arms have CNC stainless steel cross shafts which incorporate DSE's 'Caster Tuner Bushings'. These aluminum bushings adjust caster by moving the upper control arm fore/aft for more or less caster without adding alignment shims. The upper control arms also utilize DSE designed bushings. These greaseable aluminum/Delrin bushings have an increased stiffness over stock. This provides more consistent and precise handling.


Tubular Lower Control Arms                        #031208


Detroit Speed’s tubular lower control arms replace stock lower control arms on 1978-1988 G-Bodies. These tubular lower control arms are shipped complete with lower ball joints, steering stops, and are ready to install on your car. Features include a robust tubular design with gussets and cross brace, Delrin™ busings with steel housings and crush tubes, and a black powdercoated finish. The geometry features include additional positive caster in the 1978-1988 G-Body control arms compared to stock. Any OEM shock and spring package will fit. Also included with the G-Body control arms are the Heavy Duty precision endlinks that connect the lower control arms to the front sway bar. Optimize your performance with a DSE shock or spring package.


DSE Sway bar & Chassis brace kit                #031408


Tubular 1-3/8” front Anti-Roll bar is designed to address the shortcomings of the small factory G-Body Anti-Roll bar. The DSE Anti-Roll bar kit comes with greaseable polyurethane bushings, mounts and end links. We bend all of our Anti-Roll bars in-house. This allows us to control quality so you receive the best product for your money. The kit also included the chassis brace kit provided to triangulate the front crossmember and reduce friction within the front section of the chassis.


DSE Chassis Brace Kit                                     #034001


Through an extensive testing program, DSE discovered there are substantial improvements that could be made over the original chassis braces. By triangulating the front crossmember and frame rail we were able to reduce deflection within the front section of the chassis. The chassis braces are 1-1/8” OD x .120” DOM wall. All necessary hardware is included.


2" Dropped Coil Springs                                         #031132


Give your G-Body a modern Pro-Touring stance while improving ride and handling with our new G-Body coil spring kits. We offer a 2” drop (from stock). These springs provide an improvement in both ride and handling over the soft factory coils.
