Default suspension kit for 1970 800A

Hi IHPA Team-
My Scout is in serious need of suspension help. The thing is frightening to drive over 35mph for several reasons, poor suspension being one of them.

I'd like to maintain a similar stance to the current one, but do it right.

What suggestions can you offer from your product line?

Many thanks.

Your longer shackles and worn out springs are definitely going to cause some wandering on the highway. Most likely the spring bushings and steering components are worn as well.

If you are looking to refresh the suspension and add a few inches of lift over stock, I would install this kit: http://www.ihpartsamerica.com/store/...0-LIFTKIT.html

For more highway driving you could also install a reverse shackle kit to improve the ride over factory: http://www.ihpartsamerica.com/store/...-SHKL-KIT.html

If you are in need of a tie rod/draglink, you can find them here:
