Detroit Speed’s DECAlink­™ Rear Suspension Kit

The DECAlink™ Independent Rear Suspension features no compromises and exclusive Detroit Speed suspension geometry for superior handling and ride quality.

The IRS utilizes modern CV axle shafts and hub bearings, keeping suspension loads from being transmitted through the axle shafts. The DECAlink™ IRS works with an original 17-spline differential assembly with upgrades to 30-spline or a Hammerhead 12-bolt differential.

No body modifications are required on 1968-79 models while the suspension is offset inboard for additional tire clearance.

All suspension link lengths are adjustable and the kit has adjustments for rear anti-squat geometry and roll center height.

The suspension points are hard mounted to eliminate stock rubber mounted suspension deflection.

The kit comes with forged in the USA Detroit Speed aluminum uprights and a two-piece cast aluminum/steel cradle assembly which eases differential housing removal.

DSE/JRi “Detroit Tuned” Coilover shocks/springs allow spring rate tuning and ride height adjustments. The kit includes a rear anti-roll bar and uses OEM cross-axis pivot bushings at all pivot points. The kit also includes Torrington bearings and a spanner tool for easy spring height adjustments.
