Looking to update the wheels on your classic Chevy but prefer the OEM styling? YearOne can help with their impressive lineup of upgraded wheels based on the iconic designs of the supercar era—like the classic five-spoke Chevy wheel.
YearOne has upgraded the originals by making them in aluminum (the originals were stamped steel) in modern 17-inch diameters with 8- or 9-inch widths. The wheels feature a gunmetal gray powdercoated center with a brushed outer lip that replaces the OEM trim ring. The five-spoke wheels accept original center caps and lug nuts for easy installation and an authentic look.
YearOne 17-inch, five-spoke wheels are available individually, in sets of four, or complete kits including center caps and lug nuts. For a limited time, complete wheel kits ship free in the continental U.S.
It’s a crate engine world these days—and with the type of affordable PowerCrate 350 powerhouses available from YearOne it’s easy to see why. Using premium components such as Edelbrock or Dart heads, hydraulic roller camshafts, and one-piece rear main seals, YearOne PowerCrate engines make 400+ horsepower with streetable compression ratios and with plenty of vacuum for power accessories. Each engine is complete less carburetor, distributor, water pump, and exhaust, and ships with a dyno sheet showing exactly how much power that example made.
And for a limited time—all YearOne PowerCrate 350 engines feature free standard shipping in the continental U.S.
AT350PC1. PowerCrate 350 with Edelbrock aluminum heads – 24-month/24k warranty. $3,699
CT350PC1. PowerCrate 350 with Dart iron heads – 12-month/12k warranty. $3,199

According to Schwartz Performance, the G-Machine Chassis is the best overall bolt-on you can do to your Camaro! The rigid, full-length frame ties into the Camaro’s unibody structure, resulting in reduced body twist and movement. The result is a better stance; exceptional handling; and a smooth, quiet ride.
The G-Machine Chassis mounts to the factory structural areas of first- and second-gen Camaros, with little-to-no modifications of the floorpan. The suspension features needle bearing-supported tubular control arms up front, with a triangulated four-bar system in the rear. Extra-long adjustable coilovers at each corner provide extended travel to produce a comfortable, stable ride.
Standard equipment on every Schwartz chassis includes power rack-and-pinion steering, front and rear splined sway bars, six-piston front calipers, and a full-floating Moser 9-inch housing finished with gears and a Truetrac posi. The G-Machine Chassis easily accepts modern LT1/4 engines, LS series, and big- or small-block engines. Bolt-in chassis are available for Chevy muscle cars, Tri-Fives, C2s, trucks, and fullsize cars.

Cam Motion is known for superior quality products yet for some enthusiasts, pricing is a major factor in choosing parts. With Cam Motion, you have options. They are committed to making sure their LS customers get exactly what they want in a camshaft so they offer three steel alloy camshaft core choices. Induction hardened 5150 steel alloy camshafts are the standard camshaft offered by competitors and what GM uses. Perfectly fine for most applications, they offer 5150 camshafts options for milder applications. 8660 Induction hardened steel alloy camshaft cores have a superior alloy to the 5150 cam cores. 8660 camshafts are a step up over the 5150 cam cores. They offer 8660 camshafts for most applications. Their standard camshafts are 8620; a superior alloy to the 5150 cams. These cores also endure a more involved oven hardening process, which creates more durable wear surfaces on the lobes while maintaining the desirable ductility characteristics of the 8620 alloy. The final product is a camshaft that is stronger with a more durable wear surface. 8620 cams are a superior product used in Top Fuel Dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stock and more. The 8620 camshafts are available for all LS applications except VVT equipped engines.

Art Morrison Enterprises (AME) has introduced the highly sophisticated Multilink IRS that can be ordered as an option on the popular GT Sport chassis or installed in a wide variety of vehicles thanks to its unique “cradle” design. The Morrison Multilink IRS was inspired by the latest exotic cars, yet features a rugged Strange Engineering S60 differential (9 3/4-inch diameter ring gear) that can handle substantial horsepower. It provides significant handling and ride benefits over older fixed control arm type IRS setups and offers improved wheel adjustability. With its semi-active steering capabilities, the Multilink IRS handles corners like a car on rails. Highly credentialed test drivers have described it as “the best suspension on the market.” Available with numerous gear ratios and brake options, the compact “package” design of the AME Multilink IRS allows for many fitment applications. It is available in four track widths from 55.5 to 61.5 inches.
The Art Morrison Enterprises (AME) GT Sport package is a system that dramatically increases the handling capabilities of your first-gen, 1967-’69, Camaro. Utilizing an AME C6 front subframe (also available for 1970-’81 Camaro/Firebird) the front is an easy, bolt-in upgrade. Out back, AME has designed a rear subframe that replaces the weak, stamped sheetmetal rails with beefy 2x4x0.120-inch mandrel bent tubing. Available rear suspension options include triangulated four-bar (which fits under the stock floorpan), three-link, or the AME Multilink IRS. All rear suspension options work with the stock fuel tank and allow up to a 335mm wide rear tire with a mini-tub. To make the chassis system as rigid as possible, AME offers a set of subframe connectors to tie the two together and stiffen up the OE floorpan. The chassis components are available as an entire three-piece package or in stages. Order yours today!

Baer Pro+ 6 Piston Brake System for Camaro
The Pro+ is Baer’s best-selling brake system. The front and rear systems include a six-piston caliper with 13- or 14-inch diameter 2-piece rotors and everything you need to complete the installation with ordinary hand tools. Baer’s Pro system is identical to the Pro+ except that it includes a one-piece rotor instead of a two-piece. Exclusive to Baer, both systems will allow you to have the exact same looking brake, front and rear!
Baer cautions users not to be taken in by claims that a six-piston rear caliper is too much brake. According to Baer, which builds all its own calipers in the USA, they spec the rear piston sizes to function properly while also allowing the use of a standard two-port, firewall-mounted master cylinder. Baer staggers the piston sizes front and rear to minimize pad taper issues common to calipers with only one piston size.
Running a 10- or 12-bolt rearend? Baer provides a properly engineered solution to mounting opposed-piston calipers on C-clip–style axles with its patent-pending VeriSlide self-centering brackets. And, you can customize the calipers’ look with dozens of colors and finishes.
Flaming River has a new rack-and-pinion cradle kit for 1970-’81 Camaros that provides over 6 inches of travel and the full lock-to-lock turning radius. The Flaming River Power Rack and Pinion is a completely new unit, it allows for an adjustable pinion angle, there is no core charge required, and is made in the USA.
The cradle system for 1970-’81 Camaros uses a travel bar design to properly position the steering pivot points to the original location and deliver the original turning radius. The system locates the inner tie-rod ends at the original pivot points. The 1970-’81 Camaro system uses the factory tie rods to connect the travel bar to the spindles. The system installs in the original mounting holes for the steering box and idler arm assembly. The system does not require any cutting, drilling, or welding and installs using basic hand tools.

UMI Performance is proud to announce the game-changing Corner Max kit. According to UMI, the Corner Max kit was designed—as a complete package—from the ground up to be the best performing stock-frame suspension on the market. Fifteen years of engineering and punishment have come together to create the Corner Max kit. UMI accomplished this by changing all the stock geometry and matching parts to work as a package instead of piecing individual items together. Their double-shear lower control arm coilover mounts allow you to swap the coil without popping off a ball joint, which is especially helpful and easy when making trackside adjustments. This kit comes complete with upper and lower tubular control arms, springs, UMI monotube shocks, and a spring-matched sway bar. UMI products are proudly made in the USA in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania.

The aeropack re-creates the Camaro ZL1 appearance on your Gen6 Camaro SS. Made in ACS’ RTM technology, the side rockers and front splitter are digitally designed for an OEM fit and finish.

Not only will the Aeropack improve your driving experience, but the added ground effects will protect yourself from rock chipping, and save you time and money on paint chip repairs. Contact ACS today to jumpstart your ZL1 Camaro conversion!
Camaro Rock Guards
ACS Composite (ACS) Front and Rear 2016-and-up Camaro splash guards are your answer on how to protect your Camaro for the long-run. Elegantly styled to match the contour of the Gen6 Camaro, the front and rear splash guards were digitally modeled to ensure the most OEM fit possible. Both rock guards are nearly two times the size of the OEM molded guards, and will offer you an enhanced protection. The massive tires on the Camaro are sticky once rolling and will pick up any and all debris and start projecting it toward the rear of the car. Save time and money on paint chip repairs, fussing with getting the perfect paint match, by installing a set of ACS Composite rock guards in under 15 minutes, so you can drive with confidence knowing your Gen6 Camaro is protected.
Wickers for Rear Spoiler

Not to mention the added benefit of greater downforce pushing down on the car to help stick corners and prevent your back-end from sliding out. Similar to the spoiler, the wickers are made of the same RTM Composite material, and are the perfect match for each other. Contact ACS Composite today and learn more about how the rear wickers can improve your driving experience!
