• Refinements to the suspension include the installation of an Air Ride Technologies StrongArm system with tubular front control arms and Shock Waves.
  • Lee Engineering’s Tommy Lee modified the stock Chevelle Steering box, which now connects to the column using Borgeson U-joints.
  • The front brakes are Baer Super Street 12-inch discs with two-piston calipers. The brakes are highly visible between the five spokes of the 18x8 inch Billet Specialties SLC18 wheels.
  • The front wheels roll on 225/40ZR18 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S rubber for maximum traction and low-profile looks.
  • Hotchkis control arms and a sway bar remain in place in the car’s rear suspension, but another set of ShockWaves replaces the Chevelle’s standard coil springs and shocks. These Shock Waves support a 12-bolt rear-end with 3.42 gears.
  • The rear Baer discs measure 11 inches across, which is still plenty big enough to provide great stopping power and look cool inside the big 20x9.5-inch SLC18 wheels. It takes a huge tire to cover such a big wheel, so the aft pair of Michelins measures 275/35ZR20.
  • Stainless Works custom built the two-and-a-half inch exhaust system. All components are ceramic coated except for the stainless polished mufflers and stainless polished exhaust tips. Rock Valley provided a stainless-steel smooth tank with integrated fuel injection pump and sending unit.

The Candy Tangerine flame pattern on the hood has been carried over to the fuel tank and the underside of the front cross-member. The underside of the car has the same quality black paint as the exterior of the car. As with the body, all components have been assembled with polished stainless steel fasteners. The brake calipers have been painted candy and the supports have been chrome plated.
