The world seems ready to embrace something we have known for some time and that’s the fact that the G-body can be a great platform for building a car that can turn well. They were made by the millions, have a full frame, and although their numbers have been depleted by stock car racers all over the country, examples can be had for a song. Hell, our own Dave Nutting owns a pretty sweet Monte Carlo SS that he has been wrenching on for years and is now going face first into major league handling upgrades. This very blog item will haunt his dreams because the new and improved Ridetech suspension packages for these cars are gearhead sexy to the tenth power.
With upper and lower control arms to fix the inherent geometry issues these cars face, coil over shocks and springs for all four corners and the associated hardware, along with other goodness, the Ridetech kits are an honest to goodness way to transform your G-body from a wallowing slop bucket to an organ shifting on ramp terror!
Here’s the full word from Ridetech!
A growing number of hotrodders recognize the 78-88 GM “G” body vehicles to be tomorrow’s mainstream musclecar. As one of GM’s last full frame cars, they are stylish, available, and affordable. We have invested a considerable amount of resources to make sure they perform as well as they look.
The new RideTech coil-over packages for 78-88 G-bodies include everything needed to completely upgrade your bulky OEM suspension. The package contains front upper and lower control-arms, coil-over shocks and springs for every corner of the vehicle, and new rear coilover conversion shock brackets. Each component is tailored to improved ride quality and performance while giving you the ability to adjust the car to your driving ability.
