Control the Galaxie with Hotchkis

Hotchkis Handling for 1965-’66 Galaxies

The Hotchkis Stage II TVS Kit for the ’65-’66 Galaxie is supplied with everything you need to complete the installation including Grade-8 hardware, precision U-bolts, polyurethane bushings, laser-cut axle and shock mounts, and more. The result is a full-size Ford that handles like a modern sports car, has great looks with a lower stance, and importantly, offers exceptional ride quality.

The system starts with spec coil springs that lower the car for improved looks and a lower center of gravity. The front springs feature a 700 lbs/in spring rate while the rears are 190 lbs/in to produce a smooth, balanced ride with damping provided by their premium Hotchkis/Fox 1.5 SPS shocks.

To improve handling and steering control, the geometry-corrected A-arms and lower control arms are designed with optimized ball-joint angles and improved caster/camber curves. The beautifully fabricated lower arms feature replaceable bolt-in heavy-duty ball joints, polyurethane bushings, and, like the upper control arms, are TIG welded for extreme strength. The upper arms are crafted from 1.25 DOM steel complemented with 4130 chromoly billet cross-shafts. The Hotchkis adjustable 1 3/8–inch lightweight hollow sway bar and fabricated strut rods complete the premium front-end package.

The rear suspension includes fabricated lower trailing arms along with double adjustable upper trailing arm to allow for proper pinion-angle adjustment. The rear-suspension package virtually eliminates wheel hop in high-horsepower applications and dramatically increases traction and stability in all forms of driving. The adjustable panhard rod and unique 1-inch chromoly rear sway bar round out the package to keep the rear end secure during extreme cornering.
