New from RideTech — two new suspension systems for 1988-1998 C1500 pickup trucks. These systems are sure to dramatically improve the handling and ride quality of your C1500. See more details below.
Ridetech is proud to announce the two new suspension systems are available in coilover and air ride configurations. Both systems replace your truck’s leaf springs with wishbone-link rear suspension and the front A-arms with tubular StrongArm front suspension.
The wishbone upper link serves two purposes: First, it locates your truck’s axle without the need for a separate Panhard bar or another device. Second, it works with two lower links to improve handling, delivering a ride quality better than leaf springs. Lower links feature Ridetech’s maintenance-free R-joint rod ends. It all bolts to your factory frame by way of a tubular crossmember and heavy-duty C-notches.
For the front suspension, Ridetech StrongArms offer revised geometry for improved performance, and 2-inch drop spindles facilitate lowering. Choose coilovers or air springs with adjustable HQ Series Shock Absorbers. A MUSCLEbar™ front sway bar, with investment-cast bar ends and delrin-lined bushings, to complete the system.
The team at Ridetech says they’re having tons of fun driving their GMT400 R&D truck. Apparently, 1988-1998 C1500 pickups respond especially well to suspension upgrades. Clean examples of these trucks are still around. Better pick one up while they are still affordable.
