The RideTech Report! They’re Hiring – They’re Heading For PRI – They’re Showing Off Customer Rides

This RideTech Report is stuffed full of good stuff and we’re not just talking bout the sexy parts. The company is currently hiring so if you are an enthusiast that has been looking to get out of the job that you hate, now may be the time to get into the industry with one of the best names in the high performance aftermarket. Along with that the company is having flash sales all through December. What’s a flash sale? Basically it is a couple day offer on specific parts or items that you can save big on. Make sure you are checking out the RideTech website as there will be multiple examples of these things through the month.

The company is heading to PRI next week to show off their current and new products. These are the pieces that have been found on many of the hardest core and most successful pro touring cars in the country. Not to mention some of the best riding. We’ve got some RideTech news of our own coming as we have recently been testing and messing around with the new Street Grip system on a car. Stay tuned for more on that.

There’s a TON of stuff to read about and see below, including some awesome customer cars and trucks. The diversity of the product line is on display with the mind blowing styles of vehicles that the parts can be found on. Land speed racing, autocross, trucks, you name it, they do it!

Coilover Tech

A coilover is simply a shock surrounded by a coil spring; it places the shock and coil in one linear unit. A coilover is a simple solution for most suspension designs, but can often be difficult to understand what you need. Fortunately, RideTech has your back with 14 years of suspension development.

Choosing a coilover begins with two important decisions. The first is choosing the function of your vehicle. If you are building a performance car, then you will want a coilover that has an adjustable shock. This allows the driver to tweak the “stiffness” of the suspension with a twist of a knob located on the shock. This adjustment knob controls the shock valving which controls the damping of the coilover. This is a huge benefit for drivers who want to fine tune their performance for the track, autocross, or the road. However, if you are building a cruiser, a non-adjustable shock is a much more economical solution. The RideTech non-adjustable shock is preset to give a soft valve setting which allows the best ride quality possible, leaving the guess work out.

The second most important decision in choosing a coilover is finding your desired spring-rate for the coil spring. Spring rate is the force required to compress a spring 1″ and is an important factor in how comfortable your car rides and your ride height. Finding the desired spring rate is a bit tricky, since you will have to know a little more about the design of your suspension. To help guide you through this process, RideTech has developed a simple spring-rate calculator:


For more information on our shocks, springs, or which rate is best for your project, visit us at or give our knowledgeable tech staff a call at 812-481-4787.

Where will we be next?  Either racing or displaying, we love to see our fans out and about.  And keep an eye on social media for your chance to win RideTech swag or even an autocross ride-along at some events!

    I’ll send them a picture of my ridetech ride when they send me a sign to be included in the photo of it 🙂
    kidding – it’s nice they give space and time to their customers.
