Improved Handling and Responsiveness

There are a bunch of different upgrades you can do, like swapping out the shocks and springs, installing sway bars, and upgrading the control arms. The specific upgrades you choose will depend on your car, your budget, and your driving style. But no matter what you choose, you're sure to notice a difference in the way your car drives.

  • Better handling - A well-upgraded suspension can make your car more responsive to steering input and reduce body roll in corners. This can make your car more fun to drive and safer on the road.
  • Smoother ride - A good suspension upgrade can also improve the ride quality of your car by absorbing bumps and road imperfections more effectively. This can make your car more comfortable to drive, especially on long trips.
  • More ground clearance - If you plan on taking your classic car off-road, an upgraded suspension can give you more ground clearance, which can help you avoid obstacles and improve your car's performance in rough terrain.
  • Customization - There are many different suspension upgrades available, so you can customize your car's handling and ride quality to your specific preferences.

Kill the sway

Just adding a sway bar to your current set-up can make cornering more predictable and help with body roll. It’s not an extensive modification for most cars. This along with some new ball joints, bushings, and service work can go a long way.

Which parts do I choose?

This really varies by car. We’ll help you along the way with what your goals are, and what products are available for your car and budget and propose upgrades that make sense for what you plan on doing with your car (cruising, road racing, auto-cross, drag race).

In most cases, no - coil overs suspension will be stiffer - but the predictable handling and increased control may be worth it.


Yes! In many cases just replacing worn components like bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends and shocks can make a world of difference.


We can do a coil-over with an airbag on top like Ride Tech “Shockwaves” that give you the stance you are looking for, and a great ride quality.
