  Mustang KCA306
  Roll Centre Kit

Whiteline Automotive (Booth #20457) will introduce two new products at the 2009 SEMA Show.

Mustang KCA306

Part #: KCA306
Description: Roll Centre Kit
Application: Ford Mustang 2005 - 2010.
Retail Price: $297.23

Mustang KCA306 Product Information
Whiteline diagnosed 2005 on Mustang with a basic Macpherson strut front suspension that has poor roll centre control and excessive bump steer. With Mustang at standard ride height, front roll centre height is just over 2” above ground. With a mild lowering of only ¾” front roll centre migrates below ground level! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Basically it means you need a Whiteline Roll Centre Kit or “ROCK”! Mustang’s front roll geometry actually encourages roll the lower you go.

A Whiteline “ROCK” is designed to raise the front roll centre geometry by using specially engineered ball-joints and tie rod ends while still maintaining original steering geometry.

Tests on Mustang showed that raising the front roll centre resulted in a substantial increase to front roll resistance and a significant reduction in suspension compression of the outside front wheel during cornering – equals less roll. The kit also covers bump steer correction with specially engineered tie rod ends. Bump steer is the toe-in or toe-out of the front wheels as the suspension goes from normal ride height through full bump (suspension system moves up) to full droop (suspension system moves down).

  Camaro W93194
  Rear Crossmember Inserts

Camaro W93194

Part #: W93194
Description: Rear Crossmember Inserts
Application: Chevrolet Camaro 2010
Retail Price: $161.00

Camaro W93194 Product Information
Whiteline’s Camaro rear crossmember inserts fit into the original crossmember mounts to re-tune them for significantly improved responsiveness without harshness. They reduce chassis movement & axle tramp. The installation can be done in-car without removing the whole rear crossmember.

Royal Purple  
High-tech Oil Filters  

Royal Purple will introduce its new high-tech oil filters at
the 2009 SEMA Show. Commercial fleets use advanced micro-glass oil
filters to extend the life of heavy-duty trucks and equipment.

The
high-tech oil filters use special synthetic glass microfibers about 10
times smaller than conventional cellulose filter fibers to provide
superior filtration. High-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal
Purple is now bringing this technology to the consumer market.

Royal
Purple’s new high-performance oil filters combine advanced micro-glass
technology and high capacity with optimized flow characteristics for
maximum performance and filter life.

Each filter features 100% synthetic micro-glass media for superior particle removal with 99% filtration efficiency; a high-performance silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts even in extreme conditions; a heavy gauge steel back-plate for maximum burst strength; an
extra heavy-duty nitrile-rubber base gasket with special lubricity
compounds to reduce torque during installation and ensure a leak-free
seal; and ultra-strength filter housing that provides extra protection against puncture from road debris.

Royal
Purple oil filters allow change intervals to be extended up to 12,000
miles. Vehicles still under warranty should follow the vehicle
manufacturer’s recommended filter change intervals.

While
Royal Purple filters are fully compatible with all synthetic and
conventional oils, Royal Purple recommends using its high-performance
motor oil, which also has a 12,000-mile life. For more information, visit www.royalpurple.com.

New All Terrain Floor Liners for Truck and SUV models for Jeep 1976–2010, Ford 1997–2010, GM 2002–2010, and Dodge 2002–2010. Constructed of all weather, injection-molded, durable, OE-quality Thermoplastic Polymer (enhanced PVC), this patent-pending design combines the best features of a deep ribbed floor mat and “old style” floor liners.

The deeply molded chevron-tread pattern channels dirt, mud and snow away from the driver and keeps trapped water from sloshing. The contoured perimeter wall offers maximum interior protection and containment.

Heavy Duty Winch  
   

The Heavy Duty 8500-lb. Winch

The Heavy Duty 8500-lb. Winch is driven by a durable 5.5 HP Series Wound motor for long life and extra pulling power. A tough three-Stage Planetary Gear box with a 172.8:1 gear ratio delivers power and reliability on each and every pull.

The Heavy Duty 8500-lb. Winch has more power and exclusive features than any other winch in its price range. All the exterior winch body screws and bolts are stainless steel to prevent rust and provide a long life.

All Rugged Ridge steel cable style Winches include off-road light-mount roller fairleads, allowing for the easy mount of two off-road lights. Special solenoid mounting brackets allow for multiple solenoid mounting points and the ability to “tilt” the solenoid for ease of use. This “tilt” feature ensures that each Rugged Ridge winch can be used with almost all off-road bumpers and over riders.

Wilwood Engineering (booth #25133) will introduce its front and rear D8-4 calipers, D52 calipers and new line of ProSpindles at the 2009 SEMA Show.

D8-4 Caliper  
   

D8-4 Calipers

Wilwood’s
front and rear D8-4 calipers are a direct bolt-on replacement for OE
calipers on ’65-’82 Corvettes. Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless
steel pistons and competition style high-temperature seals put an end
to the rust, bore pitting and seal failures that plague the original
caliper design. D8-4 calipers mount in the original location over stock
rotors, use the same style OE D8 brake pads and OE master cylinder.
Save weight and gain reliability with the D8-4.

Note: Fits C2
and C3 factory steel wheels and C3 factory optional aluminum wheels.
Does not fit Kellsey Hayes or replica knock-off wheels.

D52 Caliper  
   

D52 Calipers

Wilwood’s new
D52 calipers are a direct bolt-on replacement for all ’68 and later GM
musclecars, passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks originally
equipped with the big, single piston D52 pad calipers. The calipers are
built to mount in the stock location, with stock dimension rotors,
using regular OE type or aftermarket compound replacement pads and
fitment anywhere the OE calipers were used.

The new D52
calipers provide a lightweight, high-strength, extreme-duty alternative
for customized street machines and all competition vehicles that still
require OE mounting. The forged billet aluminum bodies provide a
substantial weight savings, without rust or corrosion, over the
original cast iron calipers.

Stainless steel pistons with high
temperature bore seals minimize heat transfer and provide maximum
durability in the most extreme circumstances. A smaller bore rear model
is available to help maintain proper front to rear bias on vehicles
that have been converted to four wheel discs. Optional color finishes
are available to compliment wheel, tire, and rotor upgrades on all
types of customized machines.

ProSpindles  
   

ProSpindles

Wilwood’s
ProSpindles are designed for custom suspensions configured around
Pinto/Mustang ll geometry. The standard height version is used for
applications where you wish to maintain the stock ride height. The
2-inch drop version is utilized when you want to effectively lower the
ride height without disturbing the suspension geometry. The one-piece
forged steel body is lightweight, yet nearly three times stronger than
OE or aftermarket two-piece cast and steel replacement spindles.

Bolt-on
steering arms are strong and allow the same spindle to be used on
either side of a vehicle. The steering arms may also be inverted to
help make corrections for bump steer based on the steering linkage
location. Additionally, the spindle is one half-inch taller than OE
spindles which effectively raises the front roll center geometry for
improved handling characteristics. Integral mounting bosses on the
spindle body provide the strongest possible attachment point for
caliper brackets. ProSpindles use common Pinto and Mustang ll tie rod
ends, ball joints, wheel bearings and seals.
