G-body Build Series – Updating Front with UMI Suspension

Join Dustin and Ramey in the UMI Race shop as they transform an old 1978 Cutlass into a weekend warrior with cruising capabilities. In this series they transform the old, worn out, factory suspension with a UMI Performance Stage 2 Handling kit. The UMI Stage 2 handling kit is the – bolt-on and go – way to improve handling and performance. It gives your classic car a modern feel. 

In this episode the team gets to work installing all the UMI Stage 2 kits front suspension products on the Oldsmobile Cutlass. Along with the stage 2 handling kit, they also installed UMI’s Bolt-on, Front Reinforcement Brace (PN:3053). The reinforcement bar allows you to tighten up your G-body’s chassis. The suspension wasn’t the only thing updated on the Cutlass! Also featured in this episode was a new pair of Forgeline’s RB3C forged concave wheels!
