If you want to spend multiple thousands on a rear suspension setup for your Nova, look elsewhere. But if you want to stay within a modest budget without sacrificing performance and drivability, there’s only one place to look: CPP. At least that’s our opinion.
If you’ve been following along here or on our social media (@classicperform on Instagram) you’ve probably seen our 1967 Nova. We build this cool Pro Touring-inspired second gen Nova with the help of HOT ROD magazine for Week To Wicked in summer 2020.
Now that the build is complete, we’ve been taking the time to go through the car. We’ve done some fine-tuning, installed Vintage Air A/C, and we’ve used the Nova to shoot some instructional videos on installing CPP parts (see links below).

Now, we decided to take a few minutes to walk you through the rear suspension setup on our 1967 Nova. R&D lead Jason Scudellari and engineer Danny Nix went through everything CPP-related to show you how it works and why it was designed. The overall goal was to show how CPP offers some of the best bang-for-your-buck when it comes to Pro-Touring style rear suspension components.
Nova Rear Suspension Options From CPP
If you just want 2” lower Narrow Leaf Springs and CPP gas shocks to get a better ride and stance, you can do that. You could also bolt on traction bars to eliminate wheel hop and put the power down. You could even just pick up a sway bar lessen the lean. Or you could get the whole enchilada, like we did, and install the springs, traction bars and upgrade to double-adjustable shocks plus the high-clearance adjustable sway bar with billet mounts and subframe connectors.
Whichever route you choose to take, you’re getting what you pay for and then some. But that’s enough tooting our own horn for now. Go watch the video if you haven’t already to learn all about it, then head over to classicperform.com and start shopping!
