But that’s just the start. The kit also includes a 14:1–performance-ratio power-steering box; a performance rear leaf-spring kit for Firebirds, or lowering coil springs and tubular trailing arms for GTOs; and a set of Corvette C5-style front spindles (to enable the installation of a C5 front brake kit, sold separately). The price is $2,119 for ’64-’72 GTOs, LeMans, and Tempests, and $2,229 to $2,289 for ’67-’81 Firebirds and Trans Ams.

Out, Damned Spot
Race Ramps’ new FlatStoppers prevent your Pontiac’s tires from flat-spotting during long periods of storage. Constructed from 100-percent-solid polystyrene and coated with polyuria, these lightweight, durable, non-slip ramps measure 22.34 inches long by 13 inches wide by 3.39 inches high. Unlike your garage floor or driveway, FlatStoppers disperse your Pontiac’s weight evenly, while not conducting heat or cold into your tires despite changing floor temperatures. The price is $267 for a set of four.
