Owners of 1967-72 Chevrolet C10 pickups can obtain superior handling, performance, ride quality and an attractive, lower stance through replacing their OEM chassis with a superbly engineered, precision crafted GT Sport chassis from AME. It’s a bolt-on project and a proven investment that will pay dividends down the road.
Using 3D scanning to assure a perfect fit, AME’s engineering team developed a contemporary chassis that provides a 5-6” ride height with nothing protruding below; the 3” exhaust is routed through the frame rails and engine placement is optimized so the oil pan is flush with the bottom of the frame. The 2”x6” frame features FEA-optimized chassis braces to significantly stiffen the platform. The front suspension features Wilwood forged aluminum spindles with an integrated modular bearing assembly and serviceable ball joints. CNCfixtured, TIG-welded tubular steel control arms with CNC-machined upper mounts, plus coilovers and a 3-position adjustable anti-roll bar with adjustable end links compliment the suspension geometry that’s designed to optimize both street driving and track duty. A new steering rack with a billet aluminum steering arm provides near-zero bump steer with zero steering slop. The 62.5” front tread width facilitates the proper scrub geometry while allowing for use of dished wheels. A 9” housing with a triangulated 4-bar rear suspension and coilovers eliminate the need for a Panhard bar and provides excellent forward bite, lateral stability and anti-squat geometry.
Header Kits for AME GT Sport Chassis
Configuring an exhaust system is one of the most important parts of any build! We’ve developed, in collaboration with Ultimate Headers, a complete line of headers to cover all of our GT Sport chassis applications with a variety of engine options for each. These headers feature thick 3/8” flanges to assure trouble-free dependability and ball-type collectors are employed to facilitate leak-free hook-ups to the exhaust system. Given that chassis applications will vary, please contact our staff for details. Headers are also available with a ceramic-metallic coating. As AME is a dealer for Ultimate Headers, we can provide headers for other applications as well. Please call for specific pricing and availability.
