RideTech Releases 1988-1998 Chevy C1500 Suspension Systems

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.

Official Release:

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.

Features:

  • Available in coilover and air ride configurations
  • Wishbone-link rear suspension
  • Tubular StrongArm™ front suspension
