Ridetech Level 2 Complete Air Suspension System for 1965-1966 Mustangs.Upgrade your classic Mustang with the ultimate suspension kit from Ridetech. The level 2 system equips your Mustang with HQ Series ShockWaves at all four corners. Front and rear ShockWaves simply bolt on, clearing tires and all suspension components. Ridetech's TruTurn front suspension system corrects the very poor Mustang suspension geometry with strong tubular bolt-on parts. The 4-link will position the rearend more precisely and eliminate the flexing and instability of the leaf spring setup. The level 2 kit includes the same compressor and tank but upgrades the control system with a RidePro e3 compressor system and digital control and display.

Ridetech's bolt-on 4-link bolts directly into the OEM leafspring mounts. Only four small tabs need welded to the axle for the two upper bars. Ride quality and performance is dramatically improved over stock. Instead of a wallowing soft ride, you'll experience a crisp, controlled ride that will inspire more confidence for performance driving. The ride height is typically lowered by approximately two inches. Ridetech's 4-link system uses pre-engineered mounting hardware to maintain ground clearance, driveline angles, tire clearance and load capacities.
The Mustang's factory front suspension is plagued with bad bumpsteer, little room for wide wheels and outward tire lean around turns. With the TruTurn system installed the tires will now lean into the turn, bumpsteer is 0.000" through 5" of suspension travel and you now have clearance to run up to a 245mm tire. 17x8 and 18x8 wheels with a 5-1/2" backspace fit perfectly with this aftermarket suspension. The TruTurn system includes many parts designed by Ridetech which all work together to bring you one amazing handling package. The TruTurn package is the recipient of the 2012 Hot Rod and Restoration Trade Show Innovation Award.
ShockWaves are air bags that mount just like a coilover and replace both the coil spring and shock absorber. The ShockWave system will lower the vehicle from the factory ride height and provides the ability to go even lower when not being driven by lowering the air pressure. Typically, a vehicle can be lowered approximately five to six inches beyond the stock ride height. The HQ Series ShockWave features single adjustable shocks which can be adjusted for ride quality or performance gain. 26 rebound clicks from soft to firm let you pinpoint the perfect ride. The air bags simply bolt-in and retain all the factory mounting points while eliminating tire clearance problems. Anodized billet aluminum shock bodies feature a mono-tube design with adjustable valving and proven patented sealing technology which will last for years of reliable service.
Controlling the ShockWaves is Ridetech's RidePro e3 control system. An e3 electronic control unit offers more options to refine your air suspension. In addition to three ride height presets and the "ride height on start" feature, the calibration process, weight compensation and crossload compensation are now all automatic. Error detection and troubleshooting menus have been added into the unit to make finding and fixing problems much easier. A single compressor takes care of filling the three gallon tank.
If you want your classic muscle car to ride and drive like a modern performance car, the complete air suspension system is the perfect solution. Ridetech thoroughly tests all of their components before releasing them to the public. The cars are regularly used in a wide range of performance driving environments along with normal highway time. With multiple suspension parts and setups available, Ridetech has something to offer for the weekend cruiser to road race warrior, and everything in between.
*Some trimming of spring pocket may be required for ShockWave fitment.
