Front Suspension Products
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.
DSE Hydroformed Sub Frame
Detroit Speed’s front subframe is a bolt-in replacement for the original stock subframe. It improves the handling and ride quality by utilizing DSE’s unique suspension geometry. It is the ONLY subframe in the aftermarket industry with hydroformed frame rails. The hydroformed frame rails feature strength and stiffness, precise quality and repeatability. Hydroforming preserves the steel’s strength and stiffness because it is performed at low temperatures, unlike traditional high temperature processes which decrease material strength.
Comes complete with the folowing componants:
• Hydroformed Framerails
• Stamped Crossmembers
• Tubular Upper and Lower Control Arms
• DSE/JRi Coilover Shocks for Subframe with 'Detroit Tuned' valving
• Coilover Spring
• Power Rack and Pinion Steering
• Splined Anti-Roll Bar
• C6 Steering Knuckles and Bearing Packs ** Sub Frame Must ship Freight!
Up to a 10" wide wheel can be packaged without modification to the inner wheel wells. Both the main and secondary crossmembers are stamped for structural rigidity. SBC, BBC, LS1, LS2, and LS7 engines have been designed as a direct bolt-in into this subframe.

Front Sway Bar #031401
Improve cornering and reduce body roll with Detroit Speed’s own larger diameter hollow anti-roll bar. Our larger than stock bar is powdercoated black and comes with everything you need to bolt it on including greaseable polyurethane bushings and end links. We test all of our anti-roll bars to assure optimal performance with our DSE Front Speed Kits. We bend all of our anti-roll bars in-house.

Front Lower Control Arm Bushings #030201
DSE lower control arm bushings consist of a steel housing with a Delrin™ bushing and a steel crush tube. All parts are CNC machined and come with stainless steel grease fittings.
Unlike aluminum bushings, our steel outer housing can be tack welded to the lower control arm if desired. This is beneficial because production variation and years of service can distort the lower control arm bushing bore. The steel crush tube is always plated in a zinc electroplate with a yellow chromate finish to insure corrosion resistance.
Front Upper Control Arm Bushings #030401
These urethane upper control arm bushings are designed as an upgrade over stock for improved handling. This kit includes one car set of upper control arm bushings.
