UMI Introduces 1970-81 GM F-Body Handling Kit

New from UMI – the 1970-1981 GM F-Body Handling Kit. This kit is designed to work together properly to offer an enjoyable ride and sporty feel. See more details below.

Official Release:

UMI’s Stage 1 handling kit is the cost effective way to refresh your trusty second gen and bring the joy back to daily driving. The kit includes UMI 2-inch front lowering springs (600 lb/in rate) and rear lowering leafs (175 lb/in), which take away that floating feeling so common with soft springs. UMI’s slim monotube shocks (front and rear) control body movement and improve response when hitting transitions on your favorite back road.

The second gen platform responds nicely to the heavy duty 1-1/4-inch front sway bar, which prevents body roll and makes the car much more fun, and easy, to drive. UMI also includes a new poly shackle and rear isolator kit to refresh that commonly corroded area. The UMI Stage 1 kit is designed to work together properly to offer an enjoyable ride and sporty feel. This kit is 100-percent Made In USA, and is suitable for daily driving as well as corner carving.

Features:

  • Suitable for daily driving and even occasional corner carving.
  • Achieve approx 2-inch lowering and a sporty stance with 600 lb/in race quality front springs and 175 lb/in rear leafs.
  • UMI slim-body monotube shocks control body movement and smooth out bumps and dips.
  • UMI 1-1/4-inch sway bar reduces body roll and improves response during corner carving.
  • Includes poly rear shackle and isolator kit.
  • Made In USA.
