Straight Talk From Art...
“Technology In Motion” is a slogan that
we have used for many years now and it’s
a great description of what we do. For
decades, we have been always innovating,
improving our products and providing our
customers with the best suspensions
available. Part of staying on the cutting
edge of suspension technology we always
listen to what our customers are looking
Art (l) and Craig Morrison (r) have long
demonstrated the ability to provide customers
with products they desire.
for. The last few years, the dominant
request has been for an IRS system.
Anything ranging from the antiquated C4
system to a modern double A-arm setup
like what the new Corvette’s have.
While we have wanted to incorporate an
independent rear suspension into our rear
clip and chassis designs, we never could
find a design that would significantly
increase handling performance, yet
package well at the same time. The
increase in comfort would definitely be
there as the rear tires could act
independently of each other, but we were
looking for more than just that. While the
possibility of a double a-arm IRS design
was discussed, the packaging of a
suspension like that left a lot to be desired
and we remained patient that we would
find an IRS style that would fit our needs.
Then 3 years ago, Craig Morrison and
our Lead Engineer Matt Jones were in
Southern California to participate in Super
Chevy Magazine’s Suspension Challenge.
Interested in participating in some "extracurricular" events, Craig and Matt took our
’55 Chevrolet to a number of different
shows. One of these events was a run
along the coast with a group of supercars.
Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other exotics,
along with our “GT55” enjoyed some of
the great roads and scenery of Orange
County, California.
It was on this run that we finally had the
proper seed planted for an IRS design.
The final stop on this run was at a very
well respected Porsche-tuning shop, BBI
Autosport. Amongst the spectacular cars
on display, there was a Porsche GT3 Cup
car on one of the lifts, and with its belly
pans removed the rear suspension was in
full view. As Matt was examining the
suspension, both he and Craig began to
discuss the possibilities of this Porsche
suspension being able to work for a hot
rod and muscle car application. The track
width was right, the size of the tires would
work and more importantly, it was in a
very compact space, perfect for being able
to put it under the floor of many of the cars
that we deal with.
Returning from their successful trip to
Southern California, Matt began to explore
the possibilities of using this suspension.
Working with Betim and Joey at BBI, Matt
had them send up the various suspension
components so he could model the parts
and begin working towards a suspension
design. Unfortunately, the Porsche
components were so singularly designed
for a rear-engine, rear wheel drive Matt
soon found that they weren’t a viable
option. The idea of a multi-link IRS, in
theory, was still a possibility, the only thing
was to find the right OE components.
During this development time, the 5th
Generation Camaro came onto the scene

Matt Jones’ familiar 1969 Camaro was fitted with the prototype AME Multilink IRS and taken to
Super Chevy magazine’s “Suspension Challenge” held at Willow Springs Raceway in California. The
car easily out-handled even the new Camaro SS and earned glowing accolades from all who drove it.
and through SEMA’s Technology Transfer
program, Matt was able to evaluate the
multi-link design that GM had created for
this vehicle. The vehicle layout was right
(front engine, rear wheel drive), the track
width was correct and just as important,
the size of the suspension was what we
were looking for. The key part of the 5th
Gen Camaro suspension was the upright
and hub assembly, everything else Matt
would design.
The final piece of the puzzle came last
year at SEMA when Craig and I were
talking to our long time partners at Strange
Engineering. Thanks to the massive
amounts of power that the LS platforms
were capable of, Strange was debuting a
cast-aluminum Dana 60 differential that
was a direct replacement for the OE unit.
Not only was this part going to be absolutely
bomb-proof, the Dana gear set would be
very quiet. After inspecting the piece up
close, this was definitely going to be our
go-to piece for our all new multi-link
design.
Throughout the last quarter of 2012 and
the first part of 2013, the design was
finalized and the prototype installed into
Matt’s ’69 Camaro for testing and
evaluation. Sway bar rates were tweaked
and the JRI shock valving was perfected
as the car was driven thousands of miles
on roads of various quality. Even in the
early stages of testing, we knew we were
onto something that was special. It was as
comfortable to drive as a new car, but it
also significantly added to the performance,
helping the car drive around corners
harder than ever before.
With everything finalized, it was time to
head back down to sunny Southern
California to participate once again in
Super Chevy Magazine’s Suspension
Challenge. While we were pretty sure that
it would perform well, we weren’t prepared
for just how well it actually would do out
on the road course. With testing this time

Table of Contents
out at the world famous Willow Springs
race course, Matt’s Camaro was subjected
to skidpad, slalom and road course tests.
All of the test drivers were amazed at the
comfort and performance of our IRS
design, but the road course was where it
really shined. With its ability to help drive
the car around the corners, test driver
Mary Pozzi was able to apply the power
earlier and keep the power on later than
any car she has driven before.
Three years in the making and with the
performance and road testing complete,
the Art Morrison Enterprises Multilink IRS
is now ready for sale. The IRS will be
available for just about everything we
make, whether it is one of our GT Sport
bolt-on chassis, custom builder’s chassis
or a rear subframe. Available in 4 different
track widths, there’s an application for just
about every car out there. While there are
many aftermarket IRS options available
these days, the Multilink IRS is the first
multi-link design and also the first IRS
design that actually improves the cornering
performance of the vehicle. We have
dedicated two pages of this year’s catalog
to the Multilink IRS and all of its many tech
features. If you would like to have this
installed on your specific frame please
speak with our sales and tech department
when they are working on a quote for your
project.
2014 is going to be an exciting year, the
Multilink IRS, new chassis designs in the
works and a dedication to our slogan of
“Technology in Motion” that is as strong as
ever. As always, we owe you a debt of
gratitude and a heartfelt “thank you.” If it
wasn’t for your support and suggestions
we wouldn’t be where we are today, nor
would we be building the things we do.
Your business is valued and our staff
welcomes your comments as to how we
can provide you with better parts and
service. We look forward to being part of
your next project. Thank you!

NEW!
Independent
Rear Suspension
When asked to evaluate the handling of Matt Jones’
Multilink IRS-equipped 1969 Camaro, which was entered in the
Super Chevy magazine Suspension Challenge, test driver Mary
Pozzi —an 11-time SCCA Autocross Champion— summed it all
up by saying “This is THE BEST suspension I’ve ever felt
underneath a car on a track.” That’s a strong testimonial from a
highly credentialed professional.
It’s important to understand that not all Independent Rear
Suspensions are the same. Early IRS setups, typified by Jaguar,
Cobra and C2/C3 designs (which have been mimicked by several
aftermarket manufacturers) have a number of disadvantages.
These include poor toe and camber control, little anti-squat and
spindle support, limited wheel offsets and requiring a relatively
large “package.” They also have horsepower limitations.
The Morrison Multilink IRS can trace its design lineage to a
number of the world’s most renown “exotics” that include late
model Ferarri, BMW, Porsche, and Nissan GT-R automobiles.
There are a number of important advantages to the new
Morrison Multilink IRS; all of which add up to optimum handling
and long-term dependability.
INSTALLATION INFORMATION
• Available in four track widths: 55.5", 57.5", 59.5"
and 61.5" (wheel mounting surface to surface width)
• Wide variety of gear ratios: A half-dozen ratios
between 3.54 and 5.13
• Brake options: 12.4" rotor with floating caliper,
Wilwood 14.3" with W6A caliper or 14.4" with
OEM Brembo caliper.
• Minimum wheel size: 17"* with 12.4" brake rotors,
18" with Wilwood brakes.
* Only certain wheels will work. Please call for details.

IRS
Technical
Features
& Benefits
Functionally Independent Design
The decoupled links allow changes to one parameter
without affecting others. For example, during the design
phase we were able to make an adjustment to the camber
curve with little or no effect on the roll center. This gives
you the freedom to set the car up for optimal handling
under varying conditions.
Direct Load Paths
Through use of decoupled lower links a direct load path
is created that prevents control arm failure. Moreover,
most bushings are loaded in their radial direction for
maximum stiffness.
Superior Knuckle Support
Typical wishbone designs attach at three points in single
shear. The Morrison Multilink IRS has four attachment
points to control freedom of movement, three of which are
double-shear attachments.
Improved Wheel Control
With the AME Multilink IRS you can establish functionally
independent camber, caster and toe curves. Moreover,
critical toe link locations can be tuned to allow dynamic
steering while maintaining stability in high bump situations.
For example, you can have up to 1° toe at max bump
travel. The minimized link deflection and high durometer
bushings help maintain precise wheel alignment.
Ride Quality Improvements
Unsprung vehicle weight is reduced by approximately 100
lbs., requiring less spring rate to control wheel movement.
NVH (noise/vibration/harshness) is reduced because it
must travel through three sets of bushings before
reaching the driver’s compartment.
Unique Cradle Design
Not only does this facilitate installation of the Multilink
IRS in most Morrison GT Sport chassis, but makes it
easily adaptable to other vehicles. It can be aligned to
the vehicle during installation and provides excellent
serviceability. Loads from the coil-overs transfer to the
vehicle frame, not the suspension cradle.

Give Any Tri-5 Chevy
Sports Car Handling!
Simply replace the 50-plus year-old chassis with
Art Morrison’s computer-designed “GT Sport” package!
It’s been over a thousand GT Sport chassis ago that our
“Project GT55” debuted to rave reviews and literally helped fuel
the “resto mod movement.” The concept of taking a classic
design like the Tri-5 Chevy and giving it superior handling, an
improved ride, and a contemporary stance has certainly resonated
with a large number of enthusiasts. Our “Project GT55,” which
was equipped with a healthy 530 horsepower SBC crate motor
and T-56 6-speed tranny, was initially put through its paces by
the editors of Super Chevy magazine and recorded impressive
numbers in acceleration, braking, skid pad and slalom that put
many exotic sports cars to shame.
Now we’ve made a good thing even better. We started up
front, developing the “Sport IFS” front suspension package. It
features more aggressive geometry, heavy-duty control arms and
larger polyurethane bushings. Benefits include improved high
speed stability, the ability to run larger front tires, minimized
nose-diving in hard braking and better overall handling.
The latest development is the availability of our remarkable
new Multilink I.R.S. in Tri-5 GT Sport chassis. This attribute clearly
optimizes the handling characteristics of any “shoebox” Chevy
and leaves nothing on the table.
Of course, the fundamental beauty of the AME GT Sport
chassis is that it’s a virtual “bolt-on” installation. You can
literally unbolt the body from the OEM frame and slide a GT
Sport chassis into place. While many of the nation’s top pro
builders use GT Sport chassis, many do-it-yourselfers have
successfully installed them.
Whatever your performance goals are, AME can configure at
GT Sport chassis to meet those needs. Let our tech consultants
help you achieve those goals.
NEW
Multi-Link
IRS
Make a good thing even better by
equipping your Tri-5 with the new AME
Multilink IRS. It’s an available option that
will set your ride apart from others. It’s
much quieter than conventional setups, too.
An Art Morrison GT Sport chassis was selected as the foundation for Street Rodder
magazine’s 2011 Tour Car. Street Rodder’s Jerry Dixey put over 20,000 miles on the
car during the course of the year-long promotion, with glowing reports on the car’s
handling and ride. With over a thousand Tri-5 Chevys now equipped with
GT Sport chassis, it has become the standard of excellence for
resto-mod projects.
The GT55 (shown in its original paint on the
next page for the Super Chevy test) earned a
“Top 5” spot for Street Machine of the Year from Goodguys and
subsequently went on a year-long tour. It was also featured on “The
Smoking Tire” show. Use the barcode scanner on your smart phone
and link up to footage with “The Smoking Tire” review of the GT55.

Super Chevy Magazine performed a series of tests on Art Morrison Enterprises, Inc. “GT55” project vehicle. Testing was
conducted with the GT55 after it was driven 1,200 miles from Tacoma, WA to Los Angeles, CA. There were no modifications made
to the chassis or to the BFGoodrich tires before testing. The results (vs. Road & Track tests) were:

Now your classic 1955-1957 Chevy can have the handling
characteristics of an exotic sports car! All it takes is a CADengineered replacement chassis from Art Morrison Enterprises,
Inc., and it’s a project that most competent do-it-yourselfers can
accomplish in their own home garage. Little or no welding is
required to install this chassis.
Up front, we’ve designed a suspension that provides an
excellent combination of ride comfort, cornering agility and highspeed stability. Tubular steel control arms and Strange Engineering
adjustable coil-over shocks are employed, while a matched rate
1" diameter sway-bar controls body roll.
In place of the antiquated OEM steering box we offer the superb
power rack & pinion from DSE. The 20:1 ratio is ideally suited for
most highway driving. Other options available.
The chassis has been engineered to accommodate all popular
transmissions, including Powerglide, TH350, TH400, and 700-R4
automatics, as well as any 4-speed, Tremec TKO and T-56
6-speed, Richmond 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmissions.
Integrated engine mounts also allow for easy installation of a
Chevrolet small-block or big-block (BBC requires firewall
modifications and LS engines require adapter plates to utilize
SBC mounts).
The rear suspension is a triangulated 4-bar with Strange
Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks. This is a vast
improvement over the stock Chevy setup for a variety of

reasons—not the least of which is total control of the rear end
during acceleration and cornering. What’s more, by eliminating
the leaf springs, there is room to run tires up to 11.5" (275mm)
section width within the stock wheel wells (if the car is “minitubbed” tires as large as 345mm can be fit under the car). The
suspension’s performance is enhanced with the addition of a 3/4"
sway-bar to minimize body roll.
Another benefit of the Morrison chassis is that it lowers the
car some 3-4" to improve handling and give it a contemporary
stance. Integrated into the chassis are specially designed
passageways in the frame crossmembers to route the exhaust
system through so ground clearance is not compromised.
Clearly, this is the foundation that any contemporary Tri-5
Chevy should be built on! A Morrison chassis is an investment in
driving enjoyment that you’ll enjoy for years to come and its
increased value, should you ever want to sell it.

Technical
Features
& Benefits
The AME Tri-5 chassis is designed for optimum roll
center stability under all conditions. The roll center
is maintained almost perfectly thru the first 3° of
body roll and beyond 3° the roll center movement is
minimized resulting in a suspension that is vastly
improved over a Mustang II type suspension. And
the rate of vertical movement is almost 1:1 with
suspension movement, while the path it follows
during transitions (braking, cornering, acceleration)
is very smooth. This results in very consistent,
stable and predictable vehicle handling.
Caster
Caster has been increased to +5° (from
normal +2°) to provide improved stability
at speed. This also improves the tire
contact patch and weight distribution
under cornering.
Camber Curve
& Anti-Dive
Due to the design of the control arm
angles, camber control is enhanced
throughout the four inches of suspension
travel, while minimizing side movement
of tire contact patch (side scrub). The side angle of
the control arm contributes to increased anti-dive
for better stability under hard braking, while serving
to provide a smooth and supple ride.
Bumpsteer
The bumpsteer curve has been designed to match
camber and caster curves. The vehicle will track
straight with minimal steering correction—even on
bumpy pavement.
Ride Height
Vehicle will be approximately 3-4 inches lower than
stock. To make the vehicle any lower, the
recommended method is to use dropped spindles.

Get State-Of-The-Art
Handling For Your
1953-1962 Corvette!
Following the very successful launch
of our GT Sport chassis for 1955-57
Chevys, AME’s engineering staff focused
its attention on the First Generation
Corvette. While the classic styling of
1953-62 ‘Vettes has legions of admirers,
the car’s notoriously harsh ride and
dubious handling characteristics have
prevented enthusiasts from enjoying a
driving experience in a manner that owners
of C5 and C6 Corvettes have come to
expect. In addition to providing a
phenomenal “bolt on” improvement for
those First Generation Corvette owners
willing to step up, this latest addition to Art
Morrison’s GT Sport Chassis line provides
an excellent foundation for anyone wanting
to build a classic Corvette-bodied “kit car.”
There are a number of 1953-55, 1956-57
and 1958-62 style bodies on the market
that would lend themselves well to this
particular application.
The first chassis off the production line
became the foundation for Art Morrison’s
“Project 3G” 1960 Corvette, which won
several important construction awards and
raised the bar in performance through a
series of tests conducted by leading
automotive publications. With an average
of 1.05 Gs on the skid pad, a 116-foot
braking distance from 60 mph and quarter
mile times in the low 12s at over 120 mph,
the car exceeded a “G” in each of the
measured performance criteria.
Subsequently, many other 1st generation
Corvettes have been given a new lease on
life with a Morrison GT-Sport chassis. It’s a
project that is well within the scope of any
competent do-it-yourself builder.

How AME’s Engineering
Team Obtained Great
Handling Improvements
For “C1” Corvettes...
C6 I.F.S. Components
The first step in obtaining vastly improved handling was to
employ the forged aluminum control arms and spindles from
2005-up Corvettes. In order to take advantage of the C6
Corvette’s I.F.S. (which has exceptional geometry in stock form),
several revisions were required to fit under the narrower 1953-62
Corvette body.
Track Width
While the C6’s hub-to-hub track width was narrowed, AME’s
Engineering Department slightly increased the scrub radius over
the C6’s very small amount. Accordingly, when 9-inch wide rims
(with 6.5" back-spacing) are employed, an excellent balance is
achieved between steering feedback and driving performance.
Through reducing the wheel’s offset, it is also possible to fit the
car with larger, high performance brake calipers.
Camber Angle & Roll Center
The Front View Swing Arm (FVSA) length has been shortened to
better maintain camber angle while cornering. At the same time,
the static roll center height was reduced to minimize side scrub
and jacking force. As a result, straight line stability and ride
quality have been enhanced.
Caster Angle
Static caster has been reduced to +6° to promote a crisper
steering “feel” and to counteract the rise/fall effect of increased
scrub radius (as compared to the stock C5 geometry). This also
provides an improvement in roll center migration.
Lower CG
By providing through-frame passageways for the exhaust system,
the AME GT Sport chassis for C1 Corvettes allows for a lower
stance, while maintaining the necessary ground clearance. This
enables the vehicle to have a lower Center of Gravity (CG).
Triangulated 4-Bar Suspension
A major difference between the Morrison GT Sport chassis for the
1953-62 Corvette and C6 ‘Vette is the use of a special triangulated
4-bar rear suspension instead of an I.R.S. There are several
reasons for this—not the least of which is the track width of the
C6 unit. The triangulated 4-bar setup performs well in terms of
acceleration control and provides excellent lateral stability.
Breaking the Triple 1-G Barrier
Our Engineering Department has done in-depth calculations and
determined that with the proper combination of power, tires and
brakes, a Morrison GT Sport chassis-equipped C1 Corvette
should be able to exceed 1-G force on the skid pad, in
acceleration, and braking. Our Project 3G ‘Vette has done it!

With AME Sport IFS
1961 Corvette by Bobby Alloway
Due to popular demand, we have developed another GT
Sport chassis for the First Generation Corvette; one that uses an
AME Sport IFS front suspension with a Wilwood spindle instead
of C6 Corvette components and facilitates the use of front
wheels with diameters down to 15".
Like our original GT Sport chassis, you can simply unbolt
the stock 1953-62 Corvette chassis, roll it away, and replace the
ancient technology with 21st Century dynamics. Moreover, you
can easily upgrade to LS power and most any popular standard
shift or automatic transmission.
The Sport IFS is augmented by Strange adjustable coil-over
shocks and an adjustable anti-sway bar, while it also utilizes a
power rack & pinion steering. This makes for nimble, sure-footed
handling that's a quantum improvement over stock.
A triangulated 4-bar rear suspension with a 9" rear end
can handle an abundance of power while also providing excellent
lateral support. Suspension comes courtesy of Strange adjustable
coil-over shocks, with further ride fine tuning possible with an
AME adjustable anti-sway bar.
Special passageways for the exhaust are built into the
frame, which allows for a lower CG and ample clearance. This
also facilitates a lower stance. The crossmembers also serve to
stiffen the chassis, which significantly improves handling.
Extensive engineering and suspension analysis confirms
that the performance of this new C1 chassis is on an even par
with our original GT Sport chassis with C6 components. Given
the proper amount of horsepower, big brakes and a good set of
high performance tires, it's quite possible to achieve 1+Gs in
acceleration, braking and the skid pad.

GT-Sport Chassis For
1964-1972 A-Bodies
Morrison’s engineering team proudly
introduces a GT-Sport chassis for the 1964-72
Chevelle. The biggest challenge faced by
AME’s designers was to place the chassis
as far under the body as possible to reduce
the amount of frame visible from under the
car. They developed a unique inner-angled
frame rail that tucks right under the floor
pan. This provides an increase in ground
clearance, which allows for a lower stance.
And, as you know, lowering the CG of a
vehicle improves its handling.
Another key to better handling is a stiff
chassis, and to this extent AME engineers
are focusing on increased torsional rigidity.
Stiffening the chassis does not by itself
make for a harsh ride. You should know
that the suspension provides an optimum
balance of handling and comfort. Our goal
is to provide Chevelle owners with a great
overall ride, while still providing exceptional
corner-carving ability.

If you're looking to build a “sleeper,” Art Morrison’s new GT Sport
chassis for 1947-53 Chevrolet pickup trucks is the key. Imagine
having a 60-plus year-old truck that handles like a new Corvette. Our
patina-highlighted “Farm Truck” caused more than a few jaws to drop
performance pad testing for a Custom Classic Trucks story.
The “High Performance” version of this chassis features a “Sport”
independent front suspension with beefy 1 5/16" diameter upper control
arms and upsized poly-bushed rod ends that combines with coil-over
shocks and anti-sway bar (both adjustable) to provide exact handling. It’s
also available with an Air Spring+Plus suspension package.
As you can tell by the “Farm Truck” photo, the ride height is quite
low and requires the bed floor to be raised about two inches. The rugged
2x6 frame is designed to “tuck in” the exhaust system for optimum
ground clearance. A 4-bar rear suspension with “Johnny Joint” rod ends
and a Panhard bar provide perfect anchors for the reinforced 9" rear.
Like all other Morrison GT Sport chassis, all required body mounts,
core supports and bumper mounts are included to provide a virtual “bolt
on” build. It can accommodate virtually any V-8 engine/transmission
(stick or automatic) combination. A an optional pedal mount makes for
a clean installation. Truly, the High Performance AME GT Sport chassis
represents a superb investment in fun driving and overall value.

1947-53 GM Truck Chassis
Economical “Standard” Configuration
Thriftmaster by ICON
2X6
Main Rails
It’s tough to call this chassis “Standard,” as it provides a quantum
leap in ride and handling over the OEM Chevrolet setup. The primary
difference between this and the “High Performance” GT Sport chassis
shown on the previous page is that it employs an independent front
suspension designed more for relaxed street use. Other differences
include the use of poly-bushed stainless steel rod ends in the 4-bar
rear suspension (instead of “Johnny Joints”) and a rear frame
configuration that allows the bed to be left stock. The ride height is
also a bit higher than the “High Performance” version.
Because of these subtle differences, we've been able to lower the
price of the “Standard” chassis, making it a more affordable build. It’s
ideally suited to the custom classic truck enthusiasts who wants
nimble handling and a great ride—but isn’t looking to shave a few
seconds from their lap times at Track Day!
The beefy 2x6 main rails and strategically placed crossmembers
serve to provide a solid foundation for any engine and transmission
combination, with adjustable coil-overs on all four corners and an
anti-sway bar complimenting the IFS, it’s easy to get the perfect
balance of performance and comfort. For the “traditionalist,” a leaf
spring rear suspension is an available option.
A power rack & pinion makes steering a breeze, and the beefy
braced 9" rear end can be fitted with a wide range of ring & pinion
gears to optimize your drivetrain. This is the new “standard” by which
all others will be judged.

The engineering team at Art Morrison Enterprises has focused
their talents on the increasingly popular 1959-64 Chevrolets and
developed an innovative chassis that provides a low ride height, great
handling and eliminates the need for a pesky 2-piece driveshaft.
What’s more, this new AME GT Sport chassis features beefy 3x4 main
framerails and specially designed crossmembers that provide ample
clearance for the exhaust system.
Up front you'll find AME's highly acclaimed Sport IFS with its beefy
tubular control arms, Strange adjustable coil-over shocks, Wilwood
spindles, an adjustable anti-sway bar and a power rack & pinion
steering. Motor mounts are available for small block, big block, W
block (348-409) and LS-series engines. Transmission mounts can be
configured for most any popular automatic or manual shift tranny.
Superior handling—and the ability to handle an abundance of
power—is assured through a triangulated 4-bar rear suspension and
a beefy 9" rear end. Adjustable coil-overs and an adjustable anti-sway
bar provide the desired ride.
Like all other Morrison GT Sport chassis, this new creation for the
1959-64 Chevy is mostly a bolt-in installation and requires minimal
floorboard modifications. It will accommodate a wide range of wheel
and tire combinations. Pricing and availability later this year.

Destined to become one of the most popular bolt-in
chassis modifications of all time, Morrison’s new
GT-Sport Front Clip is a “must have” addition to any first
generation Camaro/Firebird built to G-machine specs. It
also fits 1968-74 Chevy Novas.
Through use of a specially modified C6 spindle with lowered
steering arm mounting, the power rack & pinion steering unit is
mounted some 2" lower in the frame, which allows for a lower
CG and improved handling. Big block, small block and LS-series
Chevy engines can be employed, as well as virtually any popular
automatic or manual transmission—including Richmond 5/6speeds, Tremec T56 and TKO, Muncie, Powerglide, TH-350 &
400, 700-R4 and 4L60E—thanks to a series of available
mounts.
Designed through use of FEA (finite element analysis) the 105 lb.
front clip has outstanding strength and stiffness, yet is significantly
lighter than the bulky OEM unit. With a reduced unsprung weight,
forged aluminum C6 Corvette control arms, a shortened front
view swing arm, modified caster, and adjustable coil-over
shocks, Morrison’s GT-Sport clip will provide awesome handling.
It comes with a near-stock tread width for optimum wheel
fitment opportunities, and can use a wider-than-stock tire
(265/35R18 tested).
As no cutting or welding is required, installing a GT-Sport clip
can be performed by most competent do-it-yourselfers in the
comfort of their own garage. With an aggressive, lower stance
and incredible handling characteristics, the look and “feel” of a
Morrison GT-Sport Clip-equipped Camaro is unbeatable!
A number of accessories are available to make the installation
easier, including body mounts, headers, and a brake line kit.

Uses C6 Corvette Front
Suspension and Triangulated
4-Bar or 3-Link Rear Suspension
While our GT Sport chassis are intended
to be true bolt-in bumper-to-bumper units,
we’ve found that because First Generation
Camaros came from two different plants,
there was enough variation between cars
built in Van Nuys, California and Norwood,
Ohio to prevent one frame from fitting all.
So we’ve engineered a “3-piece” assembly
that allows the builder to position the
subframe connectors to best fit the floor
pan of each individual vehicle.
We’ve combined a C6 Corvette front
suspension and triangulated 4-bar rear to
provide optimum handling for 1967-69
Camaros. It can also be fitted with a 3-bar
rear suspension and Watts linkage. Both
setups have undergone extensive testing
by leading enthusiast publications and
proven to be exceptionally effective.
With the Morrison GT Sport package
you literally have the ability to tightly fit a
Camaro body onto this “Frame.” You will
have to cut a couple “slots” in the factory
floorboard and trim the unibody rear rails
out to accommodate the chassis and if
you use mini-tubs to handle larger rear
tires (up to 335) you’ll have to trim the
some of the rear seat frame. Given the
variables, please call AME tech personnel
for pricing information.

Now Available For
All Popular Muscle Car
Vehicle Applications!
Art Morrison Enterprises makes it easy
for anyone to adapt contemporary
suspension technology to ‘60s and ‘70s
Muscle Cars with unibody construction.
What we’ve done here is essentially build
a platform upon which a unibody-type
vehicle can be “dropped” on. The floorboard
of the host vehicle will need to be removed,
and a new one fabricated once the body
has been mounted to the frame. But in the
grand scheme of things, it’s far easier than
dealing with a separate front clip, rear clip
and subframe connectors.
The “Max G” chassis is designed to
deliver exceptional performance. You have
a choice between tubular steel control
arms or Corvette C6 forged aluminum
A-arms up front, with a triangulated 4-bar
assembly in the rear. Strange Engineering
adjustable coil-over shock absorbers are
used on all four corners, and beefy swaybars employed to control body lean. The
total package has proven to be quite
effective, and provides both nimble
handling and ground-grabbing traction.
Each of these Max G MuscleCar chassis
are CAD-engineered for the specific year,
make and model car. They are designed to
fit the vehicle in such a manner that the
body mounts and core support can easily
be fabricated and attached.
If you’re contemplating building a firstclass performing Camaro, Challenger,
Chevelle, ‘Cuda, Dart, Demon, GTO,
Mustang or ???, a Morrison “Max G”
chassis is available for the foundation of
your project. When you consider
performance and overall ease of
construction, it’s clearly the way to go!

“Builders” and “Bolt-On” Chassis
At Art Morrison Enterprises, we offer
two basic types of complete frames; a
“Bolt-On” chassis like our “GT Sport”
models, or a “Builder’s Platform” that
describes our “MaxG” and others. The
primary difference is that the “Bolt-On”
chassis requires little or no welding. It’s
the type of project that a do-it-yourselfer
can tackle with confidence. Everything
that’s needed to mount the core support,
body, bumpers, etc. is welded in place.
The “Builder’s Platform” includes all our
bumper-to-bumper 2"x 3", 2"x 4", 4"x 4"
and 2"x 6" frames (MaxG, PROfile, etc.).
These do not have the bumper mounts,
body mounts, core support, engine and
transmission mounts welded in place. This
gives builders the maximum amount of
leeway when it comes to positioning the
engine relative to the firewall, etc. Given
the amount of flexibility with the installation,
it should be stressed that advanced
fabrication skills and solid knowledge are
recommended before tackling a project of
this magnitude. To aid in the construction
of a “Builder’s Platform” chassis, AME
offers a wide assortment of mounts and
brackets that can be employed.
It’s no wonder that a growing legion of
professionals have found Morrison’s
“Builder’s Platform” frames the way to go!

4-Bar vs. 4-Link: A Tech Overview...
One of the FAQs (frequently asked
questions) fielded by AME’s tech staff
relates to preference between 4-bar and
4-link rear suspensions.
In a nutshell, a 4-link setup is best
suited to Drag Race or Pro Street type
vehicles where high horsepower engines
and large tires are being used. The 4-link
4-BAR
24
can be adjusted easily to compensate for
track conditions and control the amount of
“hit” the tire takes on the launch. And due
to the high kick-up of the frame rails,
modifications to the trunk and rear floor
are required—often times the rear seat
must be removed.
The 4-bar has longer, parallel bars and
a lower frame kick-up. It is ideally suited
to street and air spring suspension setups,
provides more latitude in setting ride
height and its polyurethane-bushed rod
ends make for a smoother, quieter ride. In
most installations the rear seat can be
retained, with little or no modifications the
seat itself. It’s neat for the street!

Which Rod End is best
for my application?
Johnny Joint
Rod End
Poly
Rod End
Johnny Joint - Developed by Currie Enterprises and originally
made for the 4WD market, the Johnny Joint is a fairly new
offering in our suspension lineup. The Johnny Joint is made up of
a forged steel body and a heat-treated pivot that is surrounded by
polyurethane. Rebuildable and externally greasable through a
zerk fitting, the Johnny Joint is very maintenance friendly. This is
a great combination of a high articulation spherical rod end with
the harmonic dampening of a poly rod end. Perfect for high
performance street and track day vehicles where comfort,
strength and performance are a priority. These rod ends fit a lot
of different suspension applications. Because of their size they
might need some extra clearance for retro-fit applications.
Spherical - Spherical rod ends are specifically used to provide
maximum strength for high load applications. Manufactured out
of a lot of different materials, the 4130 spherical end is one of the
strongest, with the ¾" rod end yielding at 40,572 lbs. Providing a
high degree of articulation, they are perfect for a wide variety of
suspension applications. Because of their all-metal construction
they will transmit road harmonics through the chassis and an
audible “clunk” can be heard in the end when they begin to wear
out. While they are expensive, the spherical rod end is perfect for
racing and all out performance applications where the focus of
the build isn’t concerned about maximizing comfort.
Spherical
Rod End
Solid
Rod End
Poly - “Poly” rod ends have become the industry standard rod
end over the years. Our version of this highly popular end is
investment cast from 17-4 Stainless Steel. Inside, is a steel sleeve
and two polyurethane bushings. While not a spherical rod end the
durometer of the polyurethane allows the bushings to flex and
gives the rod ends some rotational movement. It isn’t a lot of
movement, but it does allow suspension to articulate through its
normal range of movement. When assembled with grease, the
poly material can have a long life under normal road conditions.
Lubrication also prevents any “squeaking” associated with poly
rod ends. They also do a great job of insulating the suspension and
vehicle from unwanted road noise. Easily rebuildable, these rod
ends can have new bushings installed in a very short time.
Because this stainless steel rod end can be disassembled so
easily it can be polished for “show car” applications. Intended for
street and high performance road applications.
Solid - machined out of heat treated 4140 steel, the solid rod
end is one of the strongest available. Yielding at 58,000 lbs of
force, it is designed for punishment. The solid rod end is also
basic and inexpensive, but because it is a “solid” end, there isn’t
any rotational movement available. This also transfers road
harmonics and other noise from the suspension directly to the
chassis. Because of its limitations, the ladder bar suspension is
its only fit. Designed for drag race applications only.

Special Chassis For Convertibles
And Long-Wheelbase Cars
Mark Willman’s 56 Buick built by Troy Trepanier
.%7
!WESOME
As Shown
$10,288
4X4
Main Rails
There are several key reasons why
convertibles and long-wheelbase cars
should use this chassis. In the case of
convertibles, they essentially have no
structure above the rocker panel and need
extra rigidity to support the center of the
body. Long-wheelbase cars have a similar
issue with chassis flex, due to the torsional
action of the stretched frame. To provide
owners of convertibles, long wheelbase
sedans and hardtops with the best possible
ride and handling, the engineering team at
Art Morrison Enterprises has developed a
specially reinforced chassis that features
4"x4" main rails. This has been
accomplished by merging the 2"x4" front
subframe with a 4"x4"x .180" wall square
tube main rail, resulting in remarkable
rigidity in the area where an OEM frame is
likely to flex.
Of course, “stance” is all-important
with any custom vehicle. And Morrison can
engineer the chassis to provide the exact
ride height you desire. What’s more,

because of the exhaust passages in the
frame, it’s possible to have a very low
stance, while maintaining ample ground
clearance. Lowering the vehicle’s center of
gravity also improves handling.
With the frame rails configured to the
exact year/make/model vehicle, it’s a fairly
straightforward task installing the chassis.
The 4"x4" main rail chassis can be
designed for use in both “unibody” and
full-frame vehicles. Call for details on
various suspension options.

One of the more significant features of the Morrison GT Sport
chassis has been the center frame treatment and routing the
exhaust through passages in the crossmember. This allows for a
lower stance, without having to worry about mufflers and pipes
hanging below the bottom of the frame. Because of the popular
acceptance of this feature and request from builders, we have
developed a special kit that allows a constructor to easily adapt
this design to other chassis. Components are mandrel-formed
out of 2"x4" rectangular tubing (.120" wall) and kits are offered
with or without the exhaust tubes.

Engineered To Fit Your Application
The engineering staff at Art Morrison Enterprises has
developed this new 3-Link Rear Suspension Clip that is designed
to improve the handling and performance in a wide variety of street
machines and muscle cars. Of course, each subframe is CADdesigned for the particular year/make/model vehicle—including
the desired ride height—to provide optimum ease of installation.
From a technical standpoint, the 3-Link configuration—in
concert with a Watts-type linkage—provides complete multi-axis
control. Add the Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks
and a sway bar to the 3-Link package, accounting for optimum
compression/rebound and roll control.
The rugged 2"x 4 " rectangular steel tube frame rails and
crossmembers are precisely mandrel-formed, and the assembly
fixture-welded to assure correct alignment of all suspension
components. Optional 3" exhaust ports can be installed in the
front crossmember, enabling the vehicle to have a lower stance
without compromising ground clearance.
A specially-modified 9" Ford rear housing is also part of the
package. It’s fitted with mounts for the Watts linkage, coil-over
shocks and link bars. The bars feature Morrison’s poly-bushed
stainless steel rod ends, which provide firm control and quiet
operation. For all-out competition, a spherical rod end package is
available. Of course, axles, brakes and complete 3rd members
are available from AME to complete the installation.
*This kit comes in welded form only

Triangulated 4-Bar Suspensions
Tri 4-Bar Rear Clip
For the growing numbers of street
rodders who appreciate good handling, Art
Morrison has developed the triangulated
4-bar rear suspension, now used in the
Max G and Tri-5 chassis. The crossmember
has passages for the exhaust and for the
driveshaft for a low center of gravity and
improved handling. The suspension setup
controls both housing “twist” and lateral
movement. The “big tube” 1-3/8" diameter
bars feature Morrison poly-bushed
stainless steel rod ends. The rear swaybar, coil-over shocks, and 9" housing
complete the package.

There’s no doubt that this is the most
versatile setup for both street rods and
GT-type cars as it provides excellent rear
end control in both acceleration and
handling situations due to stabilizing both
housing rotation and side loading. It’s been
proven highly effective in tests conducted
by leading automotive enthusiast
publications. The kit contains four bars
with AME polyurethane-bushed stainless
steel rod ends, plus all required mounting
brackets and hardware. Kit also available

4-Bar Clip Package
For many applications, the 4-bar
suspension is preferred. Operating on the
principle of a “constant motion
parallelogram,” the design of the 4-bar is
such that the rear end housing is always
perpendicular to the ground—pinion angle
never changes. This, combined with the
lateral stability of the Panhard Bar, does an
excellent job of locating the rear end and
keeping it in proper alignment.
You will note that the rear frame “kick
up” of the 4-bar setup is far less severe
than what is required for a 4-link or ladder
bar suspension. This is beneficial for many
street applications, where interior and
trunk space is at a premium. Likewise, use
of a 4-bar setup in a pickup truck will
minimize the area wheel tubs encroach into
the bed. It’s the hot setup for a low profile!
Morrison’s complete 4-bar clip
assemblies include a 2"x 4 " rectangular
tube rear subframe that is CAD-engineered
for the applications. Each is designed for
the year/make/model vehicle to assure a
correct fit and make for the optimum ease
of installation. Moreover, each subframe
is precision fixture-welded by expert
technicians to assure the proper alignment
of chassis and suspension components.
The husky 2"x4"x.120" wall rectangular
tubing is mandrel-bent to assure a superb
finish and “show quality” bends. The
assembly comes with a driveshaft hoop
and all suspension brackets. The 4-bar
setup features Morrison’s highly regarded

Air Spring+Plus™ Rear Clip
For those applications where the
builder wishes to adapt a Morrison Air
Spring+Plus™ suspension to an existing
chassis, special rear subframe assemblies
are available. Like all other Morrison frame
components, the subframes are individually
CAD-engineered for the exact year/make/
model vehicle and the rails are mandrelbent to form “show quality” bends.
The subframes are made of 2"x4"x.120"
wall rectangular tubing, and fixture-welded
by Morrison’s staff of experienced craftsmen
to assure proper alignment of critical
suspension components.
Air Spring+Plus™ suspension packages
are available individually for rear subframes.
It pays to buy necessary related items at
the same time.
The rear subframe package shown at

rear suspension, Air Springs, shocks,
Panhard Bar and narrowed 9" rear end.

4-Bar Suspension

Now you can enjoy the benefits of an air spring suspension
and 4-bar housing control with these handy packages from Art
Morrison Enterprises. You’ll weld the innovative rear brackets
(which also serve to mount the bottom of the air spring and locate
the suspension bars) to the rear end housing, attach the 4-bar
front brackets to a crossmember, and affix the top air bag mount
to your frame or supplied crossmember (“Big Bag” kit). The
“Standard” kit is ideally suited to most compact and intermediatesized vehicles, while the “Big Bag” kit is designed for use on
heavier cars and trucks. The primary differences between the two
kits are the use of hefty 2,000 lbs. rated air bags and heavy-duty
brackets. These combine to provide the extra capacity required
for long-term reliability. The kits contain premium quality Firestone
air bags, 4-bars bars equipped with AME’s own polyurethanebushed stainless steel rod ends, mounting brackets and all
required hardware. Replace the coil or leaf spring setup on your
car or truck with an Art Morrison Air Spring+Plus suspension for
a better ride and the ability to easily adjust ride height at the flick
of a switch.
We also manufacture Air Spring-Plus front subframes so you
can easily convert the vehicle over to an all-air suspension for a
great ride with complete adjustability. See page 41.

Morrison makes it easy to install
narrowed rear end and wide tires with this
factory-welded Ladder Bar rear suspension
subframe assembly. The “clip” includes
mandrel-bent rear frame rails, crossmembers and suspension mounts. Each
clip is assembled on a special fixture to
assure proper alignment and welded by
certified professionals. Most importantly,
each “clip” is custom designed and built
for the intended application using
contemporary CAD technology. This assures
a perfect fit and eliminates the extra
fabrication required to install “universal”
type assemblies as sold by our competition.
Over the years Art Morrison Enterprises
has designed and built rear suspension
clips for a wide variety of vehicles. Dozens
and dozens of popular applications (and
some quite unusual) are maintained in
Morrison’s data server, and can be
promptly accessed to initiate building a
clip for your year/make/model car or truck.
What’s more, only Morrison gives you the
choice of using 2"x3" or 2"x4" rectangular
tubing. You also have a choice of a dropped
crossmember or the highly effective
“donut” style combination cross-member
and driveshaft loop in 2"x3" rails.
For a racing or “Pro Street” application
you’ll probably want to go with the 2"x3" clip.
It’s a third lighter than the beefier 2"x4" models,

and provides all the rigidity you’ll need when roll

As a rule of thumb, the more rigid the chassis,
the better it will work. The 2"x4" clips are
perfect for use in street rod and truck
applications, where roll bars and cages are not
typically used. Here, the extra strength of the
larger frame rails come into play.

AME Sport I.F.S.
Engineered For Those Who
Are Serious About Corners!
While the tried and true AME IFS has
proven its merit on many a winding road
and test track, there are those who want to
push the envelope farther. So for the
serious corner carver, we’ve developed the
AME Sport IFS.
The most visible difference is the use
of large tube control arms, going from the
7/8" OD upper used the standard IFS to 1"
diameter. This provides additional stiffness
without any appreciable weight penalty
(it’s much lighter than any OEM A-arm)
and is designed to allow use of large front
tires. Larger polyurethane bushings are
also employed, which serve to reduce
noise and vibration while minimizing flex.
What’s not readily visible are numerous
enhancements to the suspension geometry
that are engineered for more aggressive
driving. For example, anti-dive is set to
minimize nose-diving during hard braking,
caster is increased for more stable highway
42
manners, and camber gain has been
optimized to utilize more of the tire’s
footprint in contact with the pavement for
improved stopping. Roll center movement
is less than 3" laterally, which provides
confident transitional handling comparable
to contemporary high performance vehicles.
Clearly, the AME Sport IFS is ideally
suited to high performance G-Machines
that are “Track Day” worthy.
For more details, including adaptability to
various applications and pricing info, call
AME’s tech staff for personalized assistance.

Air Spring Front Clip Package
For those applications where the
builder wishes to adapt a Morrison Air
Spring+Plus suspension to an existing
chassis, special front subframe assemblies
are available. Like all other Morrison frame
components, the subframes are individually
CAD-engineered for the year/make/model
vehicle and the rails are mandrel-bent to
form “show quality” bends.
The subframes are made of 2"x4"x
.120" wall rectangular tubing, and fixturewelded by Morrison’s staff of experienced
craftsmen to assure proper alignment of
™
critical suspension components.
Air Spring+Plus suspension packages
are available individually for front
subframes. The air springs, hoses, fittings,
air pump, storage tank and dash-mount
control panel (single switch) come as a
package, while the front suspension—
control arms, sway-bar, and shocks. It
pays to buy necessary related items at the
same time.
Our typical air front clip package,
shown above for $4,098.00, contains a
custom CAD-designed 2"x4" firewall™
forward subframe, tubular control arms
with Air Spring+ mounts, shock absorbers,
sway-bar, DSE Power rack, spindles, and
springs.

Build In Stages!
EASY AS 1-2-3
Many builders don’t want to deal with taking a body completely
off the frame, or simply prefer to do the chassis modifications on
a smaller scale. That’s why Art Morrison Enterprises has developed
the “knock-down frame package.” You can adapt these sections
to your existing frame one by one and ultimately enjoy the
benefits of a contemporary suspension. Get improved
handling and a better ride in three easy stages.
Please note that the Center Support and
Tri 4-Bar rear are designed to use a
through-frame exhaust system.
This will allow you to have a
lower stance while providing
ample ground clearance. All
in all, this is the best way
for many builders to go
about constructing a
first class ride.
Eric Brockmeyer used a custom front clip to nail
the stance on his 1962 Rambler American sedan.

1 TRI 4-BAR REAR
Our triangulated 4-bar rear suspension can
easily be adapted to most vehicles and provide
outstanding acceleration and lateral control.
The kit includes the poly-bushed link bars,
crossmember, 4-bar mounts for the rear end
housing and frame, shock mounts, sway bar
and coil-over shocks.
2 CENTER SUPPORT

Here’s the easy way to stiffen your chassis for
improved handling while providing convenient
through-frame routing for the exhaust. This
facilitates a lower stance without worrying
about mufflers hanging below the frame. The
mandrel-formed 2"x4" tubes can easily be
trimmed to fit most any frame.

JRi
Shocks
We are always on the lookout for new
products that will improve performance,
and we've found it with JRi shocks. The
company has taken shock absorber
technology to the next level from both a
design and manufacturing standpoint.
For example, the shafts are REM
finished to provide a low friction, high
pressure seal, which results in more stable
tire contact. A "floating" seal/bearing head
neutralizes side loading to the shaft that is
common to coil-over applications, with the
energy dissipated through the fluid and not
the friction of components. The design and
function of the main piston and shim
allows the shock to stay more closely in
phase with the varying frequencies created
by the tire and provide more consistent
damping. And there's more.
You should also know that many of the
nation's leading race teams have switched
to JRi shocks. These range from NASCAR,
NHRA and SCCA champions to Formula
Drift standout Vaughn Gittin, Jr., whose
awesome Mustang was on our last cover.

Roll Bar &
Cage Kits
You will find that Morrison roll bar and
cage kits are the class of the industry. Easy
installation is assured for two important
reasons. The bars and cages are computerdesigned for the specific applications
using contemporary CAD technology, while
the tubing is precision mandrel-formed
on Morrison’s sophisticated bending
equipment. Instructions are furnished with
each kit. Final fitting is necessary.
Because each kit is custom made for
the application it must be prepaid. All bars
and cages are shipped via motor carrier.

TECH TIP:
Tube Notching
You may have heard the old adage, “measure once, then
measure again before cutting.” This certainly applies to roll cage/
bar assembly, where tube notching plays a vital role in ensuring
that everything fits! See page 65 for a nifty tube notcher.
Custom Round & Rectangular Tube Bending
One of the things we do best at Art Morrison Enterprises is bend
tubing. Our shop is equipped with computer-controlled equipment that
can accurately form tubing up to 2"x4" in size with the quality work
that comes from using special mandrels. Our engineering staff can
transform your ideas into working drawings and AME’s production
team can bring them into reality. Through extensive experience we
know what can be done with various size round and rectangular tube
and can deliver what you need. Please call for custom quotes.

Formed
Aluminum
& Steel Wheel Wells
Morrison makes it easy to “tub” any vehicle with these
premium grade formed wheel wells. You can choose between
.032" aluminum or 22-gauge steel, as well as three sizes: 32, 38
and 40 inches in diameter. The panels fasten together with
“Pittsburgh” interlocking seams for both ease of assembly and an
excellent seal. You don’t want smoke pouring into the driver’s
compartment during a burn-out!
The top panels feature four rolled beads and the side panel
comes with a circular bead to provide extra rigidity and a finishing
touch. The kit is shipped flat to reduce the chance of freight
damage. To make the assembly process easier, invest in a set of
Cleco pliers & fasteners. See page 65 for details.
Also available are 8" tub extensions, which can be employed
for “mini-tub” use.

Spherical Rod Ends
4130 Rod Ends
Female Rod Ends
These commercial grade rod ends are
ideal for linkages and other light-duty
applications, and they can also be used on
the bottom bars of a 4-link suspension
when budget is an issue. Check the
potential forces to be exerted when
deciding between commercial grade or
heavy-duty 4130 units. For example, the
radial static load of rod #89890700 is
13,831 lbs., compared to triple that for a
chrome moly unit. All spherical rod ends
are supplied with jam nuts.
Our 4130 rod ends are designed to
provide maximum strength for all highload suspension applications. Ideal for top
rods of 4-links. Radial static load on
#89892600 is 28,081 lbs. For the most
severe applications, our part number
#89892900 and #89892910 ends are
special heavy-duty models and positively
the strongest of all 4130 rods. They are
rated at 40,572 lbs. radial static load. Jam
nuts included.
Female spherical rod ends can be used
in most applications where rod end must
thread onto a rod-type linkage. Uses
include clutch and carb linkages. Complete
with jam nuts.

When installing a roll bar or cage it is
important to obtain the optimum fit for all
intersecting joints. This handy device uses
hole saw blades to “fishmouth” the tubes,
and can be powered by an ordinary 1/2"
variable speed drill press (a maximum of
550 RPM is recommended). The fixture
clamps to the tubing, and the cutting angle
can be adjusted from 45° to 90° to handle
virtually any required fit. This device
economically delivers true professional
results and saves time!
