Now available is our CBR/VARISHOCK coil over conversion for the 62-67 ChevyII Nova. Converting the stock front suspension of your 1962 to 1967 ChevyII Nova to coil-over shocks is now a simple bolt-on procedure (Some applications will require a small amount of grinding). Our exclusive modular shock-tower-adapter system and spherical-stem assembly gives you the ability to use our system in a variety of performance applications. The tower adapter and lower crossbar replace the factory shock mount and lower spring perch respectively. Lightweight billet-aluminum VariShock coil-overs are available in 16-position single-adjustable or 256-combination double-adjustable versions.

I have been fine tuning the coil over adjustments for the Chuck Wagon and I must say that the car is really liking the changes that have been made. I can comfortably take the on and off ramps on my way to work just as fast as I did when I was driving my 98 Z-28. Well almost as comfortable, the bench seat does not compare to a nice bucket but, you know what I mean.
The adjustments are easy and each click really does make a significant change!

I have gotten a lot of questions on how to get the springs on,here is how we did VooDooII's this morning.
That's pretty much how I did mine and Derek's, only I used some blocks of cherry I had floating aruond in place of the bearing plate. It made it easier for me to match the spring angles and keep the assembly straight in the press.

Just curious,does the lower coil over mount(to the uca) have any kind of bearing element in it? Since its eliminating the rocker perch (good) does it have needle bearings or a swivel ball or just polyurethane?
i like the look of your top mounts,realy clean.
My 66 wagon sets low in the front. 11" from the ground.
Can i get this same with your coilovers?. Also will they
work with cpp upper arms? I have those installed now.
Yes they will work with CPP uppers.Where are you measuring your ride height? Are you using stock or dropped spindles?Chuck has stock spindles on his wagon and we had to raise it up for him because he did not like it low.We never took a measurement at the time.I have Drop spindles on mine and it will definately sit LOOOWWWWW.

I am think of doing this conversion on my nova. Can you give more info on the amount of drop these will give? I think I read chuck said it gave him about 2" drop with stock spindles. Is that with either shock (double or single)?
Also could you school me on the benifits of the coilovers? I have never used them and I have not found a writeup on what the pro's are to installing these. Let alone from single to double adjustments. Do they make the front end very ridged and harsh or soft?
Do you have to eliminate the coil cover inside the wheelwells? If so i may weld thos holes closed now before I paint the engine bay. I am really up in the air with coilovers vs drop spindles. Are you guys still selliing the drop spindle? The car will be for street only!
