Street Trucks - - PARTS COUNTER -

Ride­tech re­cently an­nounced the ad­di­tion of 1988-1998 C1500 pick­ups to its Street­grip line of af­ford­able sus­pen­sion sys­tems. Twenty years ago, the 1988 Chevy C1500 launched the Sport Truck craze. Tens of thou­sands of en­thu­si­asts low­ered and dressed up their trucks. We all had fun, but the low­er­ing tech­nol­ogy of the time of­ten sac­ri­ficed ride qual­ity and load ca­pac­ity in the name of ap­pear­ance. Since then, the cus­tom truck com­mu­nity has learned how to add real per­for­mance sus­pen­sion to older 63-87 C10s and even older 3100 series trucks. Times have changed and so have ex­pec­ta­tions. Now the tech­nol­ogy comes full cir­cle.

The new Ride­tech Street­grip sus­pen­sion sys­tem fea­tures a heavy-duty C-notch de­sign that is sig­nif­i­cantly longer and stronger than other C-notches to add axle clear­ance with­out sac­ri­fic­ing load ca­pac­ity. Be­yond the sturdy foun­da­tion, the sys­tem fea­tures cus­tom-valved mono­tube shock ab­sorbers. These premium qual­ity shocks of­fer ad­justable re­bound and forged bod­ies. The shocks are so good that they carry a 1,000,001-mile war­ranty. Ride­tech pro­vides cus­tom matched coil springs and forged dropped spin­dles to get the front of your truck low. Pow­der-coated, heavy duty shock re­lo­cat­ing brack­ets main­tain an ef­fec­tive an­gle. Grade 8 hard­ware fin­ishes off the com­plete, bolt-on sys­tem.
