Just Because You Have A Truck, Doesn’t Mean It Has To Ride Like One!

Does your truck handle like a grocery cart?

Does your truck handle like a grocery cart?

The current trucks rolling off the assembly line are amazing machines. They ride like a Cadillac, but can haul a load bigger than the state of Kentucky and look good doing it.

That hasn’t always been the case. Forty years ago they were work trucks, meant to haul a load and had little to-no creature comforts. They were purpose built and did an awesome job. But just because you have one of these old 1963-1972 Chevy C10 trucks doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a modern, cushy ride.

IMG_3306Enter Total Cost Involved Engineering, who now has a complete, bolt-on front suspension to make your classic C10, ride like a modern truck. To start, this isn’t some entire new front end that requires you to cut your frame, install new front horns, and hope that everything lines up. They designed their new kit to be 100% bolt-on. With your basic wrenches you can turn your truck from a springboard ride into that Cadillac ride.

The entire front end comes complete with single adjustable coil overs, so you can get the ride just perfect. The front suspension will come assembled with TCI Engineering custom modular truck 2-inch drop spindles, 12-inch GM smooth rotors, big bore calipers, and disc brakes to replace those out-of-date drum brakes. Steering is improved with a rack and pinion set up, so whipping around parking lots can be done with ease. The kit lowers the front of your truck five inches, but has a reworked cross member to maintain ground clearance. Your truck will be hugging the ground, but without fear of hitting a speed bump.

For more information on this front end, head on over to Total Cost Involved Engineering!
