    Why would you want one? Weight? They aren’t much lighter than a modified stocker. Oil pan clearance? Modifying a stocker will clear just about any pan. Rack and pinion? They are nice. Coil over conversion? Not a lot of gain outside of header clearance. They aren’t cheap. I just installed a entire Gerst/QA1 set up for a customer. Nice stuff but not for the faint of heart. I’ve also modified quite a few. Depends on the intended usage.

      Thx, I wasn't looking for opinions. Just want to know which brands are on the market.

        I don't know if you'd consider the Alterktion setup tubular. Believe it's a coil over conversion with replacement K member component.

            I did a video of installing my QA1 front. Went well, but I got miner as a level 2 handling kit. Should be towards the middle or end of the posted video.

            I have a RMS tubular K Frame, tubular upper and lower control arms with coil overs and a manual rack that I drive on the street with no complaints. I can install and remove both side headers with engine installed. I am able to run a 10 quart flat bottom oil pan and it doesn't even hang as low as my headers.

            Anyone have direct comparison on how upgraded stock suspension rides and handles compared to the RMS coilover setup? Debating over my options as I need to upgrade the whole front suspension as well as the steering, so cost wise I think it will be pretty close. I decided to have a 400/470 stroker motor built for my 68 Charger and will also be upgrading to the TKX 5 speed. I saw the new Speedtech front sub option which would allow wider front tires, but just not sure the price difference can be justified.......
