Herb Adams Suspension Parts

When I purchased my '87 GTA, I also bought a few Herb Adams chassis parts. IIRC there is a long rear stabiliser rod and a panhard rod,bushings,control arm rods.

Has anybody installed these and what improvements can I expect.

Was Herb Adams bought out? Who makes the best suspension upgrade parts now.

Re: Herb Adams Suspension Parts

I'm sure you will notice a big improvement in how stable your rear is going to feel, but holy cow those are some old performance parts. Only remember that name from a old camaro performance book I bought about 13 years ago...

No idea what happened to that company but today there are lot of good companies making parts for our cars. BRM Fabication, Spohn performance, UMI performance are some to name a few. What are you after?

Re: Herb Adams Suspension Parts

I did a few common things to my car like wonderbar, SFC, poly bushings, etc. The most noticeable handling improvement, to me, was when I replaced the LCA and panhard bar with UMI tubular parts. I could tell the difference in the first turn I made out of the driveway after installation.

Herb Adams is a very big name in the suspension world. IIRC he help develop and tweak the suspensions for the Fbodys back in the day.
