These have Coleman Racing coil over kit (420-501 type) on shocks. The rotor were 4 studs changed to 5,Big calipers.I believe these are a1980 vintage.
What can I upgrade to? I would like a Wilwood type rotor and a Double adj. Shock or is this a strut? ( no upper a-arm).
Thanks for helping,Rich

It's a strut. It looks to me like a Capri strut that's been modified to fit a drag car.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

Woody b, What years of Capri do you think it looks like? Does the bottom of the strut looks like Capri? Thanks, Rich
