Let’s face it, our fourth-gens aren’t getting any younger. The more they age and are exposed to the elements, the more likely they are to succumb to rust and worn components. While this is a simple situation OE replacement companies can handle, why not take it up to the next level with UMI Performance hardware?
Recently, they’ve announced their latest product, a bolt-in coil-over system for 1993-2002 Camaros and Firebirds. Not only does the adjustable coil-over allow for fine suspension tuning, but it replaces the rubber, fail-prone factory mounts, too!
UMI breaks it all down for us in the official release below.
UMI Performance Bolt-In Front Coli-Over Kit for 1993-2002 GM F-body
UMI Performance, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of our new P/N 2048 F-body front coilover kit. The rubber shock mount tends to rust out and allow unwanted movement while being costly to replace. The 2048 replaces that unit with a bolt-in, race proven double shear upper mount and bearing mounted shock.The 2048 brackets capture a Viking double adjustable coilover specific shock and a 300, 350, 450 and 550 lb-in spring.
We recommend 550 for auto-x and road racing, 450 for hot street and corner carving, 350 for general use and 300 for drag specific use. Upgrades include Crusader Pro-Tour specific valvings. Included lower t-bar fits in GM factory or UMI standard mount lower a-arms making this a true bolt in coilover.
This kit is generally used for 1-3” lowering from factory location and does not make any permanent changes to the upper spring mount or chassis. All UMI products are manufactured tested and raced out of Philipsburg, PA and always use US materials.
