In the past, 1967-69 F-body owners had to choose between budget solutions (cut springs, drop spindles) or high-dollar systems that required heavy vehicle modifications and bank account suicide. Now there’s a better way: the new Hotchkis 3-inch Total Vehicle System (TVS) provides a low-slung pro-touring stance, incredible racetrack proven handling, a sporty yet comfortable ride and bolt-on installation without sacrificing your wallet or your original sheetmetal.
The new TVS includes Hotchkis 3” Drop Sport Coil Springs, Hotchkis 3-inch Drop Sport Leaf Springs, front and rear Sport Sway Bars and all necessary hardware. This system is based on the same track-proven leaf spring technology that has been cleaning up in the GoodGuys Autocross series. The system bolts-on with standard hand tools in a single afternoon – no cutting or fabrication required. The result is incredible traction, improved launches, increased driver control, and total elimination of understeer.
Like all Hotchkis products, The 3-Inch TVS is made in the USA from the highest quality high tensile domestic steel and is finished in durable gloss powder coat. The TVS is designed to work with stock components or along Hotchkis geometry correcting tubular A-arms.
