Art Morrison 2nd-Gen "GT-Sport" Clip
Don't quite know how to weld or fabricate but still want the benefits of a truly beautiful piece of engineering? Ask anyone at Art Morrison Enterprises and they'll tell you that it is completely possible with one of their second-generation Camaro ('70-81) subframe assemblies. If you are up to replacing more than just the front suspension, like A-arms, and need a truly balanced starting point then this is the kit.

Morrison starts out with a 105-pound front clip designed through finite element analysis (FEA). It is significantly lighter in weight, yet still displays outstanding strength and stiffness over the bulky OEM piece. The Morrison unit features C6 Corvette forged aluminum control arms and Strange adjustable coilover springs. A specially modified Vette spindle with a lowered steering arm and an AGR power rack-and-pinion allows the system to sit 2 inches lower in the frame and allows for better handling. It also features a near-stock tread width and can be configured for small- or big-block engines and even LS-series engines with the options to fit OEM and aftermarket four-, five-, and six-speed transmissions.
