SLALOM HANDLING PACKAGE 1984-1987 FIERO ( FRONT )

This fully self contained front suspension system for the '84-'87 Fiero comprises a replacement fabricated cross member with tubular upper and lower control arms. The spindles are fabricated uprights with bolt-in bearing/hub assemblies. The upright design resembles those found on some formula type race cars, being very strong and light, they allow a reduction in unsprung weight and thereby improve handling. The springs and shocks are of the coil-over variety, with a large assortment of spring rates available and while the standard shock is a three way internally adjustable unit, there are other shock options including externally adjustable units. The standard Fiero steering rack is retained and the package is designed for use with Fiero replacement or standard sway bars (not included). Control arm bushings are polyurethane and grease fittings are installed at all pivot points for easy lubrication, eliminating the annoying squeak normally found in urethane bushed suspensions.

The system features purpose built geometry with excellent roll centre and camber characteristics. It incorporates anti-dive and is bump steer corrected. Ride comfort can be preserved or improved, or full race handling can be achieved with the correct shock dampening and spring rates. Of course changing ride height and or weight jacking (or transferring) is a snap with the coil-over system.

Lateral acceleration figures in excess of one 'G' have been recorded with this system, using street tires and very streetable spring rates. The system will not work with the standard Fiero brakes, the 12" Super duty brake system must be used. High quality black powder coat finish is standard on all fabricated parts in this package. With four different track widths to chose from, this is the ultimate Fiero front suspension system. (Shipped unassembled).

This information is offered only as a guide. If you have specific needs and would like assistance with spring rate selection, please call. For most big engine conversions it is necessary to increase the rear spring rate. On average a V8 will require a 10-15% increase in the rear spring rate for street applications.
