QA1 is proud to add front sway bars for GM X-Body vehicles to its already extensive line of American-made suspension components.
Manufactured in QA1’s state-of-the art fabrication facility, the GM X-Body front sway bars are available for ‘68-‘74 Chevy Novas, ‘71-‘74 Pontiac Venturas, ‘73-‘74 Buick Apollos and ‘73-‘74 Oldsmobile Omegas. These front sway bars bolt in to the factory location and are engineered to provide increased stability keeping the tires firmly planted.
QA1’s GM X-Body sway bars are made from lightweight, hollow-core chromoly steel for maximum strength, and are black powder coated for lasting durability and corrosion resistance. They also include mounting bushings and end links for easy installation.
QA1 is excited to announce the addition of its new 27 Series stock mount monotube gas pressurized shock absorber to its circle track line of products.
QA1’s 27 Series shocks feature easy, bolt-in installation and are available in all popular stock mount options. Multiple racing classes can easily install the 27 Series into several mounting configurations, making it simple for racers to get on the track and get the performance they want. Available in hyperscrew or sealed hyperscrew, these shocks are a great choice for street stocks, hobby stocks, mini stocks and other classes that require a stock mount shock.
QA1 is excited to add 600 and 650 lb. spring rates for its GM front Pro Coil Systems.
Designed for GM A, G and F-Bodies, Chevy S-10’s and Tri-5 Chevys, QA1’s 600 and 650 lb. made in the USA springs provide performance-style handling and support vehicles with heavier front end weights. These 10 inch, conical springs can be purchased separately or with QA1 GM Pro Coil Systems, making it easy to upgrade a GM style front suspension set up. The 600 lb. spring will support vehicles with a front end weight between 2201-2300 lbs. and the 650 lb. spring will support vehicles with a front end weight between 2301-2400 lbs.
QA1’s GM Pro Coil System springs are silver powder coated for excellent longevity and the ultimate in appearance. They are manufactured using the highest quality materials for high strength, consistency and durability. QA1’s springs are lifetime guaranteed to remain within 2% of their original free length under normal operating conditions.
QA1 is pleased to announce the addition of its new 53 Series stock mount twin tube shock absorber to its circle track line of products.
QA1’s new 53 series features a stronger, larger diameter body than the popular preceding FC Series. This larger body provides for easier gas bag installation and larger oil capacity for increased shock cooling. QA1’s 53 Series is manufactured in our Lakeville, Minnesota facility, allowing us to provide custom valvings to suit specific performance needs. The 53 Series is a perfect choice for Southern Sport Mods, stock cars, street stocks, mini stocks and limited modifieds.
