SUPERFORMANCE INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION SYSTEMS
The suspension in a vehicle separates the vehicle occupants from the ground and is paramount for safety. It also absorbs irregularities on the road surface which means the better the suspension, the better the ride for the occupants.
Superformance explains that independent front suspension (IFS) offers many key benefits over earlier front suspension designs.
In older designs, when one wheel hits a bump, it affects both wheels. This compromises the quality of the ride and can cause traction loss, which is exacerbated at higher speeds, affecting vehicle stability.
With an IFS, which typically has lower unsprung weight than earlier designs, each wheel moves independent of the other, which reduces the amount of traction loss and greatly improves the quality of the ride.
Superformance engineers and manufactures quality IFS systems for classic vehicles to improve handling, ride quality, and the safety of your vehicle.
Superformance explains that its IFS kits are custom engineered and fabricated past the highest industry standard to transform your vehicle’s old, outdated, and poorly designed front suspension into that of a modern performance vehicle.
It says that a quality IFS like the Superformance designed and manufactured units require considerable research and development of the engineering mechanisms at play in the movement of suspension to obtain the highest performance and ride quality.
Caster, Camber and Anti Dive are all factored in at the time of manufacture.
Superformance says its premium shim adjustable control arm shafts means any competent Wheel Align shop understands how to set it up. It notes that “the Alignment Industry spoke at length about what is available and we at Superformance listened.”
Superformance can both supply and/or install its IFS kits into your vehicle. It has independent front suspension systems available for Holden Torana 1969-1974 LC-LJ, Torana 1974-1980 LH, LX, UC, Ford Pickups 1928-1986, Chevrolet Pickups 1928-1988, Ford Falcon 1960-1966, XK, XL, XM, XP, and Ford Fairlane (compact) 1962-1965.
If the IFS you are chasing is not listed, Superformance invites you to contact its team, as it says it will have another supplier.
Superformance also sells imported IFS kits ex USA from well-known manufacturers such as Chris Alston Chassisworks, Heidts, Kugel Components, Scott’s Hotrod, Total Cost Involved, and others.
