Santa Fe Springs, Calif. (March 2009)
Chrysler B & E Bodies like the Charger, Barracuda, Challenger, GTX and Superbird are icons of the muscle car era. Owners of these classic muscle machines have had to choose between poor 1960s handling and a new K-member using “Brand-F” technology – until now.
The engineers and handling experts at Hotchkis Sport Suspension have developed a new bolt-on Tubular Upper A-Arm kit for Mopar B & E Bodies that corrects excessive caster gain, creates the proper negative camber curve and reduces bump steer. The result is dramatically improved handling, traction and road feel, all while preserving the classic Mopar soul.
These new A-Arms were designed to utilize your stock K-Member and use Mopar-style hardware enhanced with modern geometry and race-proven materials. The arms are constructed out of 1-1/8” high-strength steel tubing fully gusseted with laser cut reinforcement brackets and are TIG welded for maximum strength and durability. The kit includes pre-installed laser cut pick up point relocation brackets, fully-articulating rod ends and high quality ball joints. A lustrous nickel plated finish provides incredible shine and long-lasting protection.
During track testing the arms showed incredible gains on their own, but when paired with our new Sport Sway Bars and adjustable Strut Rod and Steering Rod kits, they totally transformed our Challenger and Charger test vehicles into modern canyon carvers. Hotchkis Tubular Upper A-Arms are available for the 1966-70 B-Body (Charger, GTX, Coronet, Road Runner, Satellite, etc.) and 1970-74 E-Body (Challenger & Barracuda). Like all Hotchkis Performance products, Geometry Corrected Mopar Tubular A-Arms are designed, built and punished in the USA.
