Summit Racing Releases Frame-Brace Kits For GM Cars

New from Summit Racing – the  frame brace kits for 1955-57 Chevys and 1968-72 A-bodies. These kits tie the chassis together into a rigid structure similar to a full custom frame. See more details below.

Official Release:

Even though they are a body-on-frame design, 1955-57 Chevys and 1968-72 A-bodies have a lot of chassis flex. That’s because GM built them for a comfortable ride at the expense of handling and wheelspin-free launches at the drag strip.

Of course, Summit Racing has the solution for that. Our Frame Brace Kits tie the chassis together into a rigid structure similar to a full custom frame, but at a fraction of the price. The reduced flex will tighten up your car’s handling, improve traction, and can even improve on the ride quality The General dialed into these cars.

The kits are computer-designed, bent, and fixture-welded using high quality DOM tubing and plate steel. They locate off the factory frame holes and require no tricky measuring—all you need to install a kit are some welding skills (or a friend that can weld), cut-off discs, clamps, measuring tape, and an angle finder.

Features:

  • Ties the chassis together into a rigid structure
  • Tightens up your car’s handling and improves traction
  • Improves ride quality
