The 1988-98 Chevrolet truck platform has finally come into its own in the world of hot rodding and that means parts and pieces are being developed with a fury by the aftermarket. Ridetech recognizes trends and opportunities for consumers early in the game and they have an awesome thing going right now with their C1500 coilover lowering performance suspension system. In this video we see an entire system installed on a super clean 454SS truck. The difference in stance is one thing but the different in handling performance and fun to drive factory is completely another.
This is a bolt-in system. Yes, there is some trimming and cutting to do here and there but there’s no welding required, there’s no fabrication required, the guys and girls at Ridetech have already handled that end. What you need is your driveway, a weekend, and a couple of friends to knock this deal out and be back on the road.
With adjustable coil over shocks on all four corners of your truck you have the ability to tune the suspension to be what you want it to be. Going to a long ride and want to soften it up for comfort? Cool, a few clicks that way. Want to tighten things up and have some fun on an autocross course? A few clicks the other way. The versatility of the system is also in the fact that you can still use your truck as a truck! The same kind of light work you were doing before in your rig can be handled here. No modifying the bed floor, no gaping holes, none of that. You still have usable bed.
This is an awesome system and we think if you want to make your 1988-1998 GM truck look and handle better you can’t miss with this one!
