Santa Fe Springs, Calif. (March, 2012) – Mopar muscle car owners can spend less time in the garage and more time on the road thanks to expanded parts offerings from the Mopar suspension experts at Hotchkis Sport Suspension.

Hotchkis adds to its popular Total Vehicle Systems for A, B and E bodies by offering additional quick ratio idler and pitman arms, greasable heavy duty pivot shaft and bushing kits for lower control arms and, to ease ball joint installation in difficult B and E body upgrades, a specialized Dodge B/E Body Ball Joint Removal Tool.

The Hotchkis Sport Suspension Quick Ratio Idler and Pitman Arm Kit upgrades Dodge A, B or E Body cars steering to a quick, 12:1 ratio over the slower, factory 16:1 ratio. This easy bolt on upgrade brings Mopar steering up to the performance level of the legendary AAR Cuda and the TA Challengers.

Both idler and pitman arm feature forged, heat treated housings and ball studs for added strength and durability. To prevent corrosion the part is finished in a durable black e-coat finish. This is a must have upgrade for any performance car.

The Hotchkis Sport Suspension Pivot Shaft Kit reduces the worn out, sloppy lower control arm pivot shafts on any A, B or E body Mopar. Designed to be direct replacements for stock, these shafts are a greasable design which offers convenience as well as increased performance by reducing friction and suspension bind. Worn out pivot shafts can create sloppy handling and are recommended to be replaced, especially when installing new polyurethane bushings. Each kit comes complete with two greasable shafts, polyurethane bushings and grade 8 hardware.

To ease in installation during any Mopar suspension upgrade, Hotchkis recommends the Ball Joint Removal Tool, which makes installing or removing replacement ball joints a breeze on B or E Body Dodge or Plymouth. Designed to accept a standard ½” drive, this tool is a must have item for any automotive enthusiast's tool box.

From complete suspension overhauls to simple bushing replacement, Hotchkis Sport Suspension has the components Mopar owners need to get their project cars back out on the track and show field.
