QA1 Mounting Conversion Kits for Your Shocks
Converting To Stud Mounts
To Stud Top, From Eyelet (Loop)
QA1 offers two stud top conversion kits to convert from an eyelet (loop) top to stud top. One is for coil-overs (SS110SDM) that converts QA1 Proma Star, Ultra Ride and Aluma Matic shocks, and may also convert other manufacturers' shocks. Another (SS100SD) is for QA1 non-coil-over shocks, our Stocker Stars (TD, TS, TR, TN) or Street Stars.
To Stud Top with Cap, From Stud Top (for 93-02 Camaro/Firebird front shocks)
This kit (SS112SDM) is a stud top conversion kit for 93-02 Camaro/Firebird front shocks (GD502, GS502, GR502) that utilize a 2 1/2" I.D. coil spring. Requires upper spring cap (part #9018-101).
To Stud Bottom, From Eyelet
This stud kit (SS200SD) is used to convert shocks from eyelet (loop) bottom mount to stud mount.
Converting to T-Bar Mounts
All QA1 T-Bar Kits convert eyelet (loop) QA1 adjustable shocks to T-bar mounts.
How Do I Know Which O.D. I need?
It's the size of your eyelet bushing. Kits with 3/4" O.D. T-bars are for eyelets (loops) utilizing QA1 3/4" I.D. bushing, while kits with 5/8" O.D. T-bars are designed for ones utilizing 5/8" bushings, like QA1 Proma Star, Ultra Ride and Stocker Star shocks.
How Do I Know Which Size Bar I Need?
You'll need to measure the holes on the vehicle to determine which is the right length for you.
BAR505K (5/8 O.D. bushing, 5" bar) primarily fits ’93-’02 Camaro/Firebird shocks (Gx502) and are also used in custom applications.
Converting to Upper Eyelets
Upper eyelet kits are used to convert both coil-over and non-coil-over QA1 shocks with 9/16" - 18 piston rod thread from upper stud mounts to upper eyelet mounts, at either standard length, 1" extended length, or 2" extended length.
These kits can also be used to extend standard length eyelets to extended ones by 1" or 2".
All upper eyelet kits include 5/8" and 1/2" sleeves with a QA1 polyurethane bushing pre-installed.
