Default 67 Camaro coil over shocks for the front suspension

I have a big block 67 Camaro that I want to take the front shocks and stock front springs off and replace with a set of coilover adjustable shocks. the front suspension is all stock except the spindles and wilwood brakes. want to be able to adjust my ride heigth so I can lower it at the track and bring it up for the street, any suggestions for a good manufacturer?

Thanks

I have Qa1 on my 72 nova and I am getting ready to order a set for my 70. They are 450 but very nice and adjustable. You can also adjust ride height with a spanner wrench.

Hope this helps...

X2 on the QA1's there a snap to install and there is lots of ride height adjustment. They have a few different options, drag, street, single or double adj. I have them on my 67 street car and on my 67 drag car,
well worth the money.

A wise investment is the coil over thrust bearing kit that goes between the spring and pad. Much easier to turn the big nut.
$30 per pair from Speedway
$40 per pair form SW Race Cars

so far I have price shopped everybody and Autofab has the best price. Plus their receptionist was the nicest lady in the world and Josh the parts guy is a tru professional. $467.00 for the kit with the thrust washers and wrenches plus $15.00 in freight, gonna order them up today!

Chris,
You do realize that you'll need to adjust the toe every time you change ride height unless you have zero bump steer ?
