Suspension Poll

I am curious as to how many SNS members run a stock suspension vs. Church Boys vs. a new subframe from Heidts, TCI, etc.

Two out of three of my Novas use "None Of The Above".
  • The '65 uses 100% bone-stock.
  • The '64 uses a mixture of quality aftermarket parts (with a weld-in Mustang II x-member).
  • The '66 uses a custom Strange Strut drag front end.

I checked church boys but am using a CPP mini kit. Pretty much the same but not quite as nice as Church Boys kit.

I have the CBR upper and lower arms on my 66. Saving up to purchase the Rack setup. Then later down the road I will buy the Coil-overs.

I will be ordering the Church bar this week.
