Two-inch Lowering Springs for 1964-72 A-body
The front springs lower the vehicle by 2 inches and have a linear spring rate of 520 lb/in. The rear springs also lower the vehicle by 2 inches and have a variable spring rate of 125-200 lb/in. All BMR springs are cold wound from high-tensile silicone chromium spring wire then shot-peened and computer tested for consistency. A set of BMR Lowering Springs (PN SP031: 1967-72 models, PN SP033: 1964-66 models) will lower the center of gravity and dramatically increase the cornering capabilities of your A-body without sacrificing ride quality. Front springs and rear springs are also sold separately and currently available in a red powdercoat finish.

DynaForce Race Alternator
The DynaForce Race Alternators are available in two models, a 50-amp and 100-amp. The 50-amp model is built in a compact housing and designed for lower content racing, such as dirt track cars. The 100-amp is designed for drag racing and cars with higher current requirements. Both feature one-wire technology to keep wiring at a minimum. A great feature is that both DynaForce models feature an adjustable voltage output. A simple turn of a dial allows the unit to be used with a 12V or 16V battery. Also, since these are built to handle racing rpm, MSD incorporated a fan baffle to protect the belt.

Oil Baffle Kit for the Holley LS Oil Pan
The new 302-10 Oil Pan Baffle Kit fits Holley's popular cast-aluminum oil pan (PN 302-1) that was designed to retrofit LS engines into trucks, muscle cars, and more. Vehicles that endure prolonged sessions of braking, turning, and accelerating need extra protection from oil starvation. This oil pan baffle kit is designed to maintain proper oil level at the oil pump pickup during vehicle accelerations, both lateral and linear. The baffle maintains the oil at the oil pump pickup, preventing loss of engine oil pressure during maximum cornering in high-performance touring or road racing, as well as under hard acceleration in drag racing vehicles. The baffle is fabricated from sheet aluminum joined by TIG-welded joints. Directionally positioned one-way trap doors allow oil flow toward the oil pump pickup but not away. This baffle is designed to be used in the Holley PN 302-1 LS Swap oil pan with the standard pickup, and is a drop-in replacement for the standard tray baffle.

Late-Model Handling
Lower Control Arms for Fifth-Gen Camaros
QA1's fifth-gen Camaro rear lower control arms are constructed from CNC-cut and formed steel. They reduce control arm flex during hard cornering and acceleration. They are also designed to be stiffer in bending than the factory arm, allowing the shock and spring to work more efficiently and maximize grip. These rear lower control arms feature greasable polyurethane bushings and are powdercoated black for long-lasting durability and great looks.
