New Bluetooth-Adjustable Suspension For 1964-67 A-Body

In this high-tech world, is it so far-fetched to think an enthusiast should be able to control their hot rod’s suspension with a smart phone? Guess what? Thanks to Hotchkis Sport Suspension, you can.

This revolutionary, Bluetooth-enabled coilover system is not only manually adjustable, but altering the damping forces can be done from the comfort of the driver’s seat. That’s right, controlling the grip, ride, and handling performance of your muscle car is easier than ever! Hotchkis’ revolutionary new coilover systems can provide a comfortable on-highway ride, and with the press of a few buttons on your phone, you are track-ready.

The coilovers feature easy-to-use IOS and Android phone apps for setup and parameter adjustment, and self-adapting shock damping with manual peek thresholds via the app. Adaptive mode allows for a comfortable ride with stiffness when needed.

Hotchkis’ new ultra-premium, American-made coilovers were developed in conjunction with off-road specialist Falcon Shocks and are competition-proven with a Street Machine autocross class-win at Goodguys Del Mar 2019!

The coilovers are chock full of industry-leading features, including Hotchkis’ premium adjustable aluminum monotube shocks with CNC-machined pistons, digressive valving, precision machined oil/gas separators, and are filled with long-lasting Red Line Oil shock fluid. Shocks/coilovers take a lot of abuse under a car, so Hotchkis subjected these to a 200-hour salt-spray test for durability.

The manually and electronically adjustable shock systems feature the company’s eight-way rebound settings. The electronic systems provide nearly infinite damping-activation and includes Hotchkis’ electronic controlled shocks, master in-car control unit, cockpit controller switch, and its military-spec wiring harness.

Complete kits are available for ’64 through ’72 GM A-bodies. Each package includes mounting hardware, fabricated brackets, and Hotchkis’ unique, front A-arm installation kit. The sport coil springs are wound from high-tensile-strength steel for endurance and are rated at 700 lbs/inch front and 350 lbs/inch rear. You can also adjust the ride height down 2 to 4 inches from stock to achieve the perfect stance of your Chevelle, El Camino, or GTO.
