    4 Link Upgrade

    Considering a 4 link upgrade using "Street Lynx" product.
    At $1900.00 bucks I find it a little high priced. Youtube videos show a easy install with little welding.

    gone this way?
    My Smiles per Hour suck and I hate driving this thing.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but that same $1900.00 could be used as a down payment on a new modern muscle car that will out handle and out run any of our vintage cars right from the showroom floor and will be a heck of a lot more comfortable as well.

    But if you really do want to do some serious upgrades to your vintage Coronet's suspension, go look at the Bill Reilly Motorsports, aka RMS Advanced Suspension Systems website and see what Bill Reilly is offering. I believe that his front and rear suspension kits and his brake upgrade kits are fairly bolt on assemblies and are considered a leader in the vintage car suspension industry. If nothing else it will give you some ideas on what's involved on vintage car suspension upgrades that will make a difference for the money spent. Adding suspension bits and pieces here and there without a plan in place will end up not giving you the results that you want and will lighten up your bank account.

    This the RMS product - correct? What are you trying to accomplish?

    I personally am not familiar with the rear stuff from Bill, but I have the alterkation front end from Bill on the race car. I know guys swear buy it on the street, but for me no way would I run the alterkation on the street.

    I just put the 383 back in the 67 Coronet 500 street car with just a few mild hp upgrades. Runs great and finally it is REALLY fun to drive again and it is all stock suspension. But that is just my preference. On the other hand, I am building a street/strip brute 69 GTX that should run mid 10's and still be a street car. So I will have two different street cars meeting completely different demands.

    69 GTX clone - build in progress........

    I remember back in the day (1980`s) when we did not know better driving these cars as to how sloppy they drove. In relation to today`s modern car`s? Not even close to the same ride dynamics. I know I was venting and should remember she`s 50 years old.
    But only if?

    I have installed a few on cars in the past for customers and fit fine but rode harsh on the street, but think they are designed for track use myself. good stuff but depends on what your doing with your car. luckily I wasn't selling the kits just installing per customer request.

    For your vert?
