OEM cars from the 1970s were designed for narrow bias-ply tires and had notoriously poor handling. Consumers today want to upgrade to modern wheel and tire packages and improve their handling. Rekudo has solved this problem with its new suspension kits for the 1970-1981 Camaro/Firebird platforms. This suspension system is an auto-cross inspired modern suspension system that retains the original equipment (OE) appearance, style, and strength. Each component is fully engineered to work together as a system for modern handling that is suitable for street driving, auto-cross, and track days. Now you can retain the OEM look, but get all the benefits from modern Components, lowered stance, upgraded brakes and improved shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake upgrade (Corvette style 4-piston calipers for both front and rear) was offered on the 1968 Camaro as a "Heavy Duty Service" package sold through the parts counter at Chevrolet car dealers. In 1969, the 4-piston disc brakes could be ordered as a Regular Production Option (RPO) JL8 package on production vehicles. These high-end brakes were made available to support racing programs like the Sports Car Club of America® (SCCA), and Trans-Am® road racing series. This unique brake option is very rare and was only sold on about 200 production vehicles. The rear JL8 brake system is included with this suspension system. This Virtual Kit is configurable in the Shopping Cart - You can add or delete parts once they have been added to the shopping cart. If you want a different finish on the calipers you can remove them from the shopping cart and replace them with the desired calipers RK400-13 (red), RK400-20 (black w/o logo), or RK400-22 (raw as cast aluminum). If there are any parts that you don't need at this time, they can be removed from the shopping cart before checkout.
