Building on the tremendous success of its interior insulation kit release for 1988-’98 GM pickups, Design Engineering, Inc. is following up with its advanced thermal acoustic kits, a custom-cut solution specifically for 1967-72 regular-cab Chevy and GMC
pickup trucks.

Eliminate unwanted heat and noise with these easy-to-install, pre-cut, vehicle-specific kits. The 1967-’72 regular-cab Chevy and GMC pickup kits achieve that goal by utilizing a combination of proven 2mm damping material and Boom Mat® Under Carpet Lite while remaining lightweight for performance applications. The kits are an easy and affordable way to cruise in style and comfort while improving stereo performance and sound quality.

Each kit includes the appropriate type of material to cover specific interior areas including floors, firewalls, headliners and more. They are also designed to use the precise amount of material to control vibrations and eliminate undesirable noises such as tire, road and engine noise, all while blocking heat transferred from the engine bay and hot exhausts.

For the most quiet and comfortable interior, first put down the damping kit to eliminate noise and vibration; then follow with an insulation kit for superior thermal protection. Add the roof-specific part numbers for a total cab makeover. DEI insulation kits are CNC-cut for a precise fit and easy installation:

Upgrade your classic Chevy C10 truck to a modern driving feel and performance. This kit has everything to convert your front end to coil-overs and a tubular crossmember with rack-and-pinion steering. Already have QA1 coil-overs and control arms? We also offer kits that adapt your current parts to be used with the crossmember. This is a great way to overhaul your suspension in one go, giving you adjustable ride height to achieve the perfect stance with up to 8” of drop. All while dialing in the ideal ride quality and performance for your application while reducing weight by 140 lbs. over stock.

Rack and Pinion Steering

Powered rack-and-pinion offers quicker steering and a tighter feel. Plus, increase steering angle when fitting larger wheels and tires, and improve geometry for enhanced drivability.

Increased Ground Clearance

The crossmember and control arms make your undercab rails the truck’s lowest point. Adjustable upper shock mounts increase travel for a great ride and performance, even at low ride heights.

Adjustable Shock Valving

Choose from three shock options to achieve your ideal balance of adjustability, ride quality and performance

Single-adjustable shocks make it easy to tune your ride quality in seconds with the twist of a knob

Double-adjustable shocks offer independent rebound and compression tunability. Great for trucks that will see track time or drivers who really want to dial in ride quality on the street.

MOD Series shocks offer advanced high-speed and low-speed adjustment for maximum tunability. The modular valve packs and force curves are made for top-tier drag racing and pro touring drivers.

Easy, Bolt-In Installation

The crossmember comes powder coated and ready to install. No need to cut or weld your frame. It easily locates the steering rack, and you can choose mounts (sold separately) for common engines.

Modular Engine Mounts

Choose from modular engine mounts (sold separately) that allow you to reuse your existing transmission mount and driveshaft. Kits are available for small block Chevy, big block chevy and LS applications. DIY mounts are also available if you want to customize the location of your engine.
