 Front Suspension Products

1970-81 Camaro

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.
