6. Drop the Frontier
’98 and ’00 Nissan Frontier upper and lower tubular A-arms are now available from CanDo Specialties. The arms are constructed from 1-inch DOM tubing and feature upgraded ball joints for more travel. Like all of CanDo Specialties arms, these arms are designed to work with airbags and help you lay your truck out flat on oversize wheels. The arms also facilitate the removal of the lower strut bar for body-dropped trucks. Look for older Isuzu and older Dakota arms next.

8. Carve Corners in a C10
After receiving hundreds of requests for easy-to-install, bolt-on handling hardware for the ’67-’72 Chevy C10 pickup, the muscle car suspension experts at Hotchkis Performance have developed an all-new Sport Sway Bar System. The tubular front bar and rear sway bars increase roll stiffness for improved handling, balance, traction, and overall driver control. The adjustable rear bar can be tuned to accommodate different vehicle setups including staggered tire size, big-block engines and more. The kit includes TIG-welded end-links with easy-to-lubricate polyurethane sway-bar bushings, premium mounting hardware including U-bolts, laser-cut axle mounts, and all necessary installation hardware including Grade 8 bolts.
9. Budget-Minded Head
E-Street cylinder heads are an all new line of Edelbrock heads designed for entry level (300hp to 400hp) street performance engines operating in the idle to 5,500-rpm range. These heads feature the quality and details of higher priced cylinder heads, starting with A356 aluminum castings that are heat-treated to T-6 spec. Their modern combustion chamber designs improve the combustion process and larger-than-stock intake and exhaust ports move more air through an engine; these features improve efficiency, resulting in more horsepower, broad torque, and improved mileage potential. Applications include the small-block Chevy with 185cc intake runners and optional 70cc or 64cc combustion chambers, and the small-block Ford with 170cc intake runners and optional 1.90” or 2.02” diameter intake valves. All E-Street cylinder heads are sold in pairs and made in the USA.
