Over the last few months, we’ve been working closely with HEIDTS in helping spread the word on their new PRO-G IRS for the 1993-2002 F-bodies. We even used our own 2002 Trans Am to push their product line, essentially becoming the first party outside of HEIDTS to have one installed in their Fourth-Gen. More on that in the coming weeks, we promise!
Designed as a partly weld-in, partly bolt-in kit, the PRO-G IRS completely replaces the rear axle and the stock-style suspension setup, and takes both the ride and handling characteristics to an entirely different level.
HEIDTS Announces the PRO-G IRS for 1993-2002 Camaro/Firebird
Lake Zurich, Ill. (December, 2017) – Heidts has developed an all-new independent rear suspension (IRS) system for the 1993-2002 Camaro and Firebird. This is the first and only IRS built specifically for the fourth generation, F-body platform.
The PRO-G IRS (part number IRC-401) is available in both 500 horsepower and 800 horsepower configurations and available with the stock 65-inch track width or a narrower 62-inch track width. Either system installs quickly and easily as the saddles are designed to line up perfectly with the frame and bolt in.
The standard kit comes with a cradle, CV Shafts, tubular control arms, steering arm and billet adjustable coilover shocks and springs, with the brake packages as optional extras. This translates to more grip, a flatter ride through corners and the performance to bring your Camaro’s handling capabilities to the next level. The kit is usable both on and off the track, meaning you won’t need a trailer to take it racing.
Heidt PRO-G IRS for the 1993-2002 F-body starts at $5,395.00. For more information on the Heidts PRO-G IRS or to purchase Heidts products, visit www.heidts.com.
