Street-Rod Ladder Bar Kit

Our street-rod ladder bars were designed primarily to retain the back seat and do not require cutting up the rear floor pans. They’re double-adjustable with chrome-moly rod ends. Autofab ladder bars are made of 4130 tubing and are fixture-TIG-welded. They’re powder-coated with a gray hammer-tone finish, which is a lot more durable than paint or regular powder coat. They’re shorter for easy installation with no modifications needed to the rear floors on most applications. We have installed these on 67-81 Camaros and 68-74 Novas without having to touch the rear floors for clearance. They’ll fit other applications and should still clear the rear floors.

On leaf-spring cars, you should leave the rear bolted to the leaf springs. After checking to see if the rear is straight in the car, tack the housing brackets to the rear. Tack in the front-ladder bar-cross member and upper-shock cross member into place, making sure everything is square and plumb. Tack lower-shock mount to rear housing and double-check all measurements. Weld everything up and mock-up the ladder bars, making sure everything lines up correctly. With the exception of final paint and prep, you’re almost done. The only thing left to do is make a track locator if you’re planning on removing the rear leaf springs. Once the rear coil-over shocks are installed, and the track locator is made and installed, remove the leaf springs, set the pinion angle, and you're done. The whole job should be able to be completed in 8 to 12 hours.

1962-67 Nova Coil-Over Kit

Autofab Race Cars Inc.’s exclusive kit features custom brackets designed exclusively for your 62-67 Nova. The top bracket replaces the upper brackets that protrude up from the strut tower and gives it a cleaner, less intrusive look. The lower bracket replaces the stock spring perch on the upper control arm. There will be some cutting and grinding to remove the old stock parts, but nothing that will harm the structural integrity of the arm itself. This kit is perfect for your cruiser, street rod, or drag car. We have put these on many Novas with no problems to date. We have them on daily drivers, as well as double-adjustable versions on all-out drag cars running high 8s. This is the best thing you could ever do to your stock front suspension.
