Straight Talk From Art...
This year while we were walking
around the SEMA Show, we were
amazed at all the great customer
cars that we had on display,
thirty-three in total. What struck
Art (l) and Craig Morrison (r) have long
demonstrated the ability to provide customers
with products they desire.
us was the range of vehicles
using AME components. From
front or rear subframes to
complete chassis and from
beautiful long distance cruisers to
hard core track day cars. Cars,
trucks, customs based off of
concept cars and even two coach
built cars were riding on AME
components. It was very humbling
to see the incredible following at
such an important trade show.
Two cars in particular stuck out in
our head as rides from opposite
ends of the spectrum but both
being able to utilize chassis and
suspension systems from Art
Morrison Enterprises.
Timeless Kustoms Vicious
Mustang project. Featuring an
AME custom front subframe and
IRS rear subframe Jason and his
talented crew set out to create
one of the most insane Pro
Touring cars that has ever been
built. Working with Jason, it was
determined that a custom front
subframe with Corvette front
suspension and a rear clip with
IRS would be the best fit for their
project goals. In just 10 short
months, thousands of man hours
were invested transforming a
2
notch back into a fast back,
installing a full roll cage, 1000
RWHP blown and turbocharged
Ford Coyote V8 utilizing a MoTeC
ECU. Thanks to the wheel speed
sensors on both the front and rear
AME suspension, the ECU is able
to control wheel spin and
maximize traction control. A semiautomatic paddle-shifted
transmission controls the up shifts
and downshifts within easy reach
of the steering wheel and massive
15” carbon-ceramic Brembo disc
brakes will bring the car to a stop
in a very short distance. This car
was built for one purpose; to rip
around the track as quickly as
possible. Relying on the expertise
of AME engineers and fabricators,
the front and rear suspension
designed for the monster of a car
will keep it planted on the corners
and accelerating hard on the
straight-aways. As soon as
“Vicious” gets back to the shop
the engine and trans will get
dialed in then it’s time for
extensive track testing. We’re
pretty confident that this Mustang
will be a serious contender during
autocross and track day events.
Craig Wick of Wicked Fabrication
caused quite a stir at the 2016
SEMA show with an incredible
1951 Ford. Nearly 10,000 hours of
labor was poured into this multiyear built, creating a classic race
car look with a lot of European
flair. Starting with a completely
custom AME chassis, the front
and rear kick ups were adjusted
to give the car the stance that
Craig and his craftsmen were
looking for. With the chassis
created for this specific project,
Wicked Fabrication set about on
transforming a mass produced
1951 Ford “shoebox” into
something special. The pie-cut
section job removed 5' out of the
front fenders tapering to 2.5" in
the rear fenders while leaving the
top un-chopped. An injected
vintage Ford V8 was nestled
between the rails and lots of
great one-off touches were
designed to give this car a “La
Carrera” feel. Debuted at the Hot
Rod Industry Alliance booth, it
was instantly a stand out from the
thousands of cars at SEMA. The
judges responded accordingly;
Goodguys Gold Brick Award,
Mothers Shine Top 10 Award, Gran
Turismo “Best Hot Rod” Award
and “Best in Show” Award. I’m
confident that this amazing car
will collect a lot more hardware
and accolades throughout the
2017 show season.
That’s the great thing about what
we are capable of doing, whether
it’s a hard-core track day car or a
heavily customized early ‘50 hot
rod, we can work with you to
provide the correct parts for your
build style and performance

AME Multilink
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.

Compact IRS
AME’s Multi-Link IRS has taken the industry by storm. It
combines the handling attributes found in exotic sports cars
with the ability to handle extreme power. Its competition mettle
was proven by Mary Pozzi, whose AME-equipped Camaro.
captured the SCCA Solo National Championship in her class.
Now, the engineering team at Art Morrison Enterprises has
developed a more compact version of the Multi-Link IRS that
utilizes key components from a Gen 5 Camaro and fits in a
much tighter envelope. The cradle is 6-1/4" shorter overall and
2-1/2" lower from the axle centerline up than our original
Multi-Link IRS. This allows an independent rear suspension to
be used in many applications without the need to extensively
modify the trunk’s sheet metal for clearance.
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: 3.27 and 3.45
• 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.

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.
Chassis with Suspension: $14,250.00
COMPLETE CHASSIS: $17,565.00
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.

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.
Specifications:
Wheelbase: 115 inches
Frame: Mandrel-bent 2"x4" rectangular tubing
Assembly: Fixture welded Finish: Bare metal only.

Multilink IRS Tri-5 Chassis
Note: Chassis shown
with “shipping strut”
in place of the normal
coil-over shocks.
How do you make a good thing even better? In the
case of Art Morrison’s hugely popular GT Sport chassis for
Tri-5 Chevys you equip it with AME’s unique Multilink I.R.S.
There are a number of important handling and ride
advantages to an independent rear suspension. Probably
the most noteworthy is the IRS’s ability to compensate for
bumps and irregularities in the road (or track) and maintain
the tire’s vertical axis perpendicular to it. The net result is an
optimum “contact patch” for both right and left tires. And
the semi-active steering components increases cornering
performance for autocross, track day and canyon carving.
The IRS has also proven to be much quieter than a
conventional “live” axle setup—transferring far less “road
noise” to the chassis. It’s added comfort is ideal for long
drives and is ideal for coast-to-coast cruising. The overall
design of the AME Multilink IRS is quite compact, and
therefore minimizes the sheetmetal modifications needed to
the trunk pan.
AME’s Multilink IRS is based on the Strange Engineering
S60 differential, which is capable of handling more than
1400 HP with ease. Bring on the power adders!
Combine this with the proven handling of Morrison’s
own Independent Front Suspension and you have the
makings of the most nimble, sure-footed “shoebox” around.
In addition to improving performance and handling of
any “Shoebox Chevy,” this IFS/IRS suspension package will
significantly enhance the value of the host vehicle. Look at
the “hammer prices” of Tri-5 Chevys at leading auctions
nationwide and those equipped with Morrison GT Sport

What Our Customers Say...
When Vic LaBantschnig who has owned this
55 Nomad since 1965 ask me what we need to
start this build project? That was an easy
answer, The Morrison GT is the first and best
place to start a quality build. Morrison has
been our first choice over any other chassis
here at Carnock Creations time and time again.
Dave Carnock

Chassis #1162
“The car rides and handles better than any
car I’ve built. I’m extremely happy that I
selected the AME frame. I had a choice of any
frame on the market,but after visiting the AME
facility and touring the shop with Craig, I
placed an order that day.
I could not be happier with the way the car
handles, as if it were on rails, it’s a pure joy to
drive. A true pro touring hot rod.”

At G3 Rods we prefer Art Morrison Chassis
cause they allow us to get the perfect stance
without jeopardizing any of the ride and
handling quality that our customers want when
they drive these cars. We have ran numerous
AME Chassis and the new IRS setups are
definitely a step above the old chassis.

Chassis #1153
“One of the first steps we take when starting
a TriFive build is ordering an Art Morrison chassis.
We the know the chassis will deliver on all
platforms, and give our customer an amazing
driving experience. In the end you can spend a
great deal of money modifying your stock
chassis, but it will simply never perform as well
as an Art Morrison...so for us, it’s an easy choice.”

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.

your smart phone to see The
Smoking Tire review of the 3G
Corvette.

AME Multilink IRS.
Computer Designed Chassis
It’s important to note that the suspension of the
Morrison GT Sport chassis has been engineered using
special software and the frame is designed using contemporary CAD/CAM
technology. Accordingly, the vehicle performance and manufacturing
accuracy are far superior to what was available over 50 years ago, when
the original “C1” Corvette was designed and built.

How AME’s Engineering
Team Obtained Great
Handling Improvements
For “C1” Corvettes...
Corvette 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/C7
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!

C1 ’Vette GT Sport Chassis
With AME Sport IFS
Also available with the
award- winning AME Multilink IRS.
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.

An increasingly popular “family” of
vehicles to benefit from an Art Morrison
GT-Sport chassis is the venerable 1949-54
Chevy. But it’s important to tell you how we
got there. Our first GT Sport chassis were
CAD engineered, but all the data on the
base frame rails was accumulated via
physical measurements. Not so this latest
masterpiece. A remarkable device called
a “Faro Arm” which literally “traced” every
square inch of the OEM Chevrolet frame
was employed to directly transmit X-Y-Z
data directly into the computer. This
eliminates any chance of human error, and
guarantees that the body of your 1949-54
Chevrolet will fit superbly.
Once the basic parameters were
obtained, Morrison’s engineering staff went
about designing a front and rear suspension
package that would deliver the handling
and ride that has made the original
GT-Sport chassis for Tri-5 Chevys the
unquestioned industry leader. With almost
900 of these chassis in use as of this
writing, there is a strong foundation to build
on.
Up front, Morrison’s engineering team
has developed a sophisticated Independent
Front Suspension (IFS) that employs tubular
steel control arms, adjustable coil-over
shocks, a beefy sway bar and Wilwood
front spindles. A power rack & pinion (20:1
ratio) handles the steering.
Since most builders will want to have
something more potent than the original
6-cylinder “stovebolt” engine, the chassis
will also have motor mounts for the
popular small block V8, or the new
LS-series powerplants. Likewise, a wide
variety of manual and automatic
transmissions can be employed, including
Powerglide, TH350, TH400 and 700R4
automatics, plus any 4-speed, Tremec TKO
and T-56 6-speed, as well as Richmond 5
or 6-speed manual transmissions.
The rear suspension is AME’s highly
regarded triangulated 4-bar setup, which
gives excellent straight-line and lateral
control. Strange Engineering adjustable
coil-over shocks and a sway bar complete
the package.
With a wide variety of body styles that
this chassis will work with, including the
unique “fastback” sedans and elegant Bel Air
hardtops, let your imagination take over!
CHASSIS WITH SUSPENSION:
Includes frame, with 3" exhaust hole,
uncoated upper and lower control arms,
spindles, power rack & pinion, front and rear
sway bars, 9" housing, triangulated 4-bar
links and Strange adjustable front and rear
coil-over shocks with springs. $14,330.00

When the engineering team at Art Morrison Enterprises set about designing a GT Sport chassis for 1949-54 Chevrolets they employed the characteristics of
AME’s highly successful Tri-5 chassis. It is exceptionally stable, corners hard without appreciable lean, won’t “dive” under braking, and has a great ride.

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.
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. 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.

performance vehicle.
Engineered to provide both corner-carving handling and a great
ride, the chassis employs AME’s “Sport” independent front suspension
with beefy control arms an adjustable sway bar and rack and pinion
steering. Out back, the Johnny Joint four bar and Panhard bar work
with the adjustable sway bar and shocks to round out the suspension
package.
Like our other truck chassis, you have a choice of two different ride
heights. One is quite low, per contemporary trends, and requires that
the bed floor be raised three inches. The other provides a “standard”
ride height and requires no modifications whatsoever. Mar K
Manufacturing is making a raised floor specific for our low ride height
chassis making this modification a snap.
The extremely rigid 2" x 6" frame rails allow for plenty of room for
the exhaust for optimum ground clearance. Integrated into the chassis
just behind the 9" housing are fuel tank mounts that allow for a much
safer location and helps with the overall balance of the vehicle.
All the required body mounts, core supports and bumper mounts
are included—all fixture-welded by Morrison technicians to provide
you with a true “bolt-on” build. The chassis is available with mounts
for small block, big block and LS-series Chevy engines and virtually
any standard or automatic transmission combination. An optional

AME GT Sport Rear Subframes
Three Highly Effective Rear Suspension
Setups For 1967-69 Camaros
3-LINK
As shown
$5,640
Now Standard With
Adjustable Swaybars
TRI
4-BAR
Now you can choose between three highly effective
AME GT Sport rear subframes for your 1st Generation
Camaro. All employ rugged 2"x4" mandrel-formed
frame rails that are far stronger than flimsy OEM
stampings, which makes them better suited to coping
with the increased stresses that come with aggressive
driving. The subframes are also designed to be used
with the stock gas tank.
The primary difference, of course, is what lies
between the frame rails. And here’s where the choices
come into play.
Our popular Tri 4-bar setup offers the advantage of
fitting under the stock Camaro floorpan. No modifications
are necessary. The triangulated links provide both forward/
rearward and lateral bracing for the 9" housing, providing
excellent acceleration and handling characteristics.
A more sophisticated setup is offered with AME’s track
day-proven 3-link package. The forward/rearward housing
motion is controlled with three links, while it remains
perfectly centered through use of a Watts linkage.
Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks are
employed for both the Tri 4-bar and 3-Link subframes,
as are special sway bars. They also allow locating the
exhaust for optimum ground clearance.
The third choice comes in the form of AME’s new
Multilink I.R.S. Based on a rugged Strange S60 center
section and half-shafts with CV joints, its primary
advantage is independently compensating for any bumps
or road irregularities to always provide an optimum tire
contact patch. With a Morrison Multilink subframe, your
Camaro’s handling will be second to none.

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
www.artmorrison.com
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.
28
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.

4X4
Main Rails
1946 Oldsmobile
built by ICON
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
IRS
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.

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
36
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.

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.

Tri 4-Bar Kit
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
with a sway-bar to provide extra control
over body roll.

Crossmember with Built-In
Driveshaft Full or Half Hoop
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"x4 " 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
38
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

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
mandrel-bent 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
above right has a fixture-weld clip, 4-bar
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
polyurethane-bushed 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.

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
cages and subframe connectors are employed.
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
www.artmorrison.com
highway 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.

For those applications where the builder
wishes to adapt a Morrison air spring
suspension to an existing chassis, special
front subframe assemblies are available.
Like all other Morrison frame components,
the subframes are individually CADengineered 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.
Sport Air IFS 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 $5,170.00, contains a custom
CAD-designed 2"x4" firewall-forward
subframe, tubular control arms with Sport
Air IFS mounts, shock absorbers, sway-bar,
DSE Power rack, spindles, and springs.

AME Weld-In Crossmembers Available In Six Popular Widths
Art Morrison Enterprises offers weld-in front
crossmembers in a variety of widths. To
determine which is best suited to your car or
truck, you’ll need to determine the distance
from the outside of the right frame rail to the
outside of the left frame rail. This distance is
shown on the left side of the adjacent chart. On
the right side of the chart you’ll see the track
width for the corresponding assembly. Track
width is determined from hub-to-hub. Please
also consider wheel size and offset when
determining width.

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.

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.

Front Clip Options
In addition to offering application-specific front clips, like the bolt-in GT
Sport subframe assembly for 1st and 2nd generation Camaros, AME offers
three basic configurations for weld-in use. They include:
Bikini Clip
Unlike the straight and perimeter
design subframes that are engineered for
firewall-forward applications, the Bikini
Clip is designed to be spliced into the
existing frame and not disturb key
elements of the OEM chassis. It can be
likened to a front crossmember kit with
mounting flexibility.
Perimeter
Frame Clip
Designed for use on vehicles with
wide spaced frame rails, AME’s Perimeter
Frame Clip is CAD-engineered to best
intersect with the host chassis, as well as
provide the desired ride height.
Straight
Frame Clip
This represents the most straightforward
method of adapting a contemporary
independent front suspension and rack &
pinion steering to many vehicles. It can also
be engineered to provide an aggressive
stance. Also, it’s an ideal clip for trucks

Art Morrison Enterprises’ own coil-over shocks represent one of the best suspension
values in the industry. These highly effective units feature a 3-position Gabriel shock that
is fitted to a unique spanner-adjustable base with your choice of polyurethane bushings
or spherical bearings.
The poly-bushed “Street” units provide quiet operation, as there is no metal-to-metal
contact as you get with “Competition” style coil-overs equipped with spherical bearings.
The “Competition” units provide more positive control than the more flexible polybushed units.
Both types are shipped with coil springs that are rate-matched for your vehicle. All are
priced at $350.00 (pair), and include special mounting tabs.
To make installation of these coil-overs easy, use Morrison’s handy Shock Jigs. See

Adjustable Shocks
Strange Monotube Shocks
Maintaining its course at the leading edge of
technology, AME now offers the new Strange Ultra
Series of double adjustable shock absorbers
that are engineered for performance. They
feature a large 48mm Teflon-coated, hardanodized billet aluminum piston that
achieves higher dampening forces with
lower internal pressure. Moreover, the port
design optimizes fluid transfer and the net
result is faster frequency response and better
control of the dampening forces. The extension and
compression oil paths are independent of each other,
eliminating any “cross talk” between them. These monotube
shocks are designed with minimum unsprung weight in mind, and
are available with either an inline or integral (piggyback) reservoir.
Available in six sizes, they can be used with coil springs ranging from 7"
to 16" in length. The shaft on this shock is 3/4" which is the largest (and
strongest) in the industry. The adjustment range consists of 24 clicks for
both compression and rebound, and a standard 5/32" Allen wrench locks
it in place. Available as non-adjustable and adjustable.
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.

Tube Notching
You may have heard the old adage, “measure once, then
measure again before cutting.” This certainly applies to roll cage/

Transmission Crossmember
With Clearance For Exhaust
This unique “Double Hump” crossmember has been designed
to provide secure mounting for most popular transmissions while

The transmission crossmember developed for the 1953-56
Ford trucks has proven to be a versatile and easy to use design for
other applications. Unlike the traditional kit which uses bosses
welded to the 1-3/4" tube and tabs on the frame rail, this
configuration makes it easier to service the transmission when
needed. The crossmember has the assembly resting on top of a
bracket which is welded to the frame rail. The transmission mount
bracket is loose from the tube which allows more adjustment. The
assembly can accommodate inside frame widths up to 46".

Morrison Rack & Pinion Dyno
We’ve long used our in-house Shock Dyno to test and
evaluate various shock absorbers. Now we can do the
same thing with steering racks. This AME creation will
enable us to “fine tune” a chassis and match driver
steering input with how everything responds to it.
Our goal is to provide a synergy between
driver input and chassis response.

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!
