IFS Independent Front Suspension System, 1979-83 AMC Spirit

$3,799.00

The standard finish is raw with no painting or coating. We highly recommend a powder coated finish for long term durability and protection against corrosion.
These laser cut and CNC formed sheet metal pieces fill the gap left by the mounting rail to make the whole IFS transparent to onlookers. This is the finishing touch to make the installed system look as one with the underside of the vehicle.
The IFS comes standard with manual steering...which can be difficult to turn in tight parking or load speed driving situations. The power steering option includes: new power rack & pinion, new GM type II power steering pump, integrated reservoir, custom powder-coated bracket, pulley, hard lines with correct fittings, braided stainless high pressure line with AN fittings assembled, silicone low pressure return line with clamps, all necessary hardware, and machined spacers
This high temperature synthetic power steering fluid will prevent foaming and pump cavitation, common with mineral based power steering fluid. This fluid is used by top autocrossers, road racers, and drag racers because it works so well.
Wilwood brakes are required with this IFS system and requires 15" diameter or larger wheels. This Wilwood front disc brake kit includes 12" standard or drilled and slotted rotors, 6-piston calipers (red or black), aluminum master cylinder, proportioning valve, and braided stainless D.O.T. approved brake hose
This Wilwood rear disc brake kit converts your drum brakes to rear disc brakes. It is NOT required to use the IFS suspension system but will match your front Wilwood kit (which is required when using the IFS system). It requires 15" diameter or larger wheels. This Wilwood rear disc brake kit includes an integrated parking brake, 12" standard or drilled and slotted rotors, 4-piston calipers (red or black), parking brake cable, and braided stainless D.O.T. approved brake hose.
You'll need new brake fluid and this fluid is the absolute best. D.O.T. 5.1 brake fluid is compatible with D.O.T. 3 & 4 fluids, has low compression with a high boiling point. This fluid is made in Europe and helps prevent brake fade (especially during track use).

Our Independent Front Suspension (IFS) systems for your AMC are designed to provide exceptional control, stability, handling, safety and performance, bringing your American muscle car into the new millennium.  Designed in-house on the most advanced SolidWorks CAD systems, our AMC IFS systems are eager performers that release unsprung weight while increasing the torsional rigidity of the front end.  Lighter, stronger and more precise than the stock suspension, these systems are as much at home on the road as they are on the strip, autocross or road racecourses.
