To replace your dated leaf spring suspension, this coilover suspension kit features a bolt-on 4-link assembly with a C-notch kit. The included 1-1/2” MuscleBar is CAD-engineered in the house at Ridetech and refined on their exclusive test track. Constructed from heavy-duty .219” wall DOM tubing, the StrongArms are CNC bent for a precision fit and pristine finish. After the bend, the StrongArms are welded and finished off with a powder-coating. In addition to providing caster, the StrongArms will keep your wheels centered within your wheel arches. To prevent binding, the Ball Joint Seat Angles are optimized.

On the versatility side of things, Ridetech includes caliper brackets that work equally well with stock heavy-duty brakes as well as most aftermarket brake kits. Developed specifically for lowered C10s, the black satin powder-coated MuscleBar front sway bar will greatly enhance the cornering performance of your pick-up, especially if you have a heavy right foot.
